So we finally have settled down to our simple city life, accepting that we probably would not get to live our dreams in the country. And very suddenly this beautiful, awesome, exciting and a little bit crazy opportunity has quite literally fallen into our lap.
Some close friends of ours recently moved out to some land on the Molalla River... 286 acres of land! There is a second little (when I say litte, I mean tiny!) cabin that they have invited us to live in. We've been struggling a bit financially and this invitation is very timely. It's crazy, it's sudden, but we are doing it and we are so excited! We have less than 3 weeks to pack our stuff, figure out what we can live without and put in storage, and move out what we need. We will also be building a fence to protect our kids from the river and creek and we will turn the outside covered area into a kitchen/commons area. All of that we will be doing before we move out there, so we have our work cut out for us.
I have not been the best about keeping up with a blog in the past, but I am really going to try hard to do it this time as this is an adventure I want to keep track of!
