Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Choosing to love...and still loving


Twenty five years ago we chose to love.
I can hardly believe that much time has passed.
In some ways, it seems like only yesterday 
that I walked down the aisle and took his hand.
In other ways, it seems like a lifetime ago.
In truth, it is both.

Since then,
life has brought many changes.
God has given us three wonderful sons 
that are quickly growing into men.
And now a pretty little farm
for us to live on
just like we always dreamed of.

But along the way, we've had challenges too~
emotional, financial, health.
We've seen mountain tops and valleys.

And we have changed ourselves.
However,
 the one thing that has not changed is love
except maybe that it has grown deeper.

Growing with that love is the knowledge that
some days you must choose to love.
Choosing to love gets you through the valleys
and back up to the mountain tops
like the one we are on today...


Celebrating 25 years of marriage 
& still loving!

Phillipians 2:2
Then make my joy complete 
by being like-minded,
having the same love,
being one in spirit and purpose.
