What a Summer.
If you would've asked me at the start of this year what life had in store for me, I sure never would've guessed where I'd be now. That simple Sunday drive earlier this spring that had us stumbling upon a forgotten "For Sale" sign, the roller coaster of trying to sell our farm, the heartbreak and anxiety that comes with offers falling through, the impossible hopeless feeling of having to wait through four months of unknown outcomes, it all leads to this happy statement of: The new farm will be ours soon! In just a couple weeks we will finally close on seventy-five acres of pure bliss. A long, long driveway, a creek, woods, and lots of solitude and wilderness to hunker down in.
Something I'm looking especially forward to is the fact that I get a large studio space. A very large, only for me, studio space. I've got big goals to work toward in that space. It will be splendid.
We should be closing on my daughter's birthday which adds a bit of extra specialness to the whole transaction.
So here's to a future full of new art, a large garden, and lots of additional livestock to add to the mix. I can't wait. Excited doesn't even begin to cover the level of happiness that is coursing through my veins.
