Brian and I have a dream to live on a small farm some day. Actually, we pray that "some day" will be "soon". Over the weekend we found a house in a rural setting, yet close to town, on 2.5 acres. It's perfect. The house isn't very pretty, but we have vision for what it could be, and for now it would work. We're not sure if this is "the" house for us, but we're praying about it. In the mean time, it's fun to dream.
Here are some images I found for farm inspiration.
I love a beautiful fence.
I can see myself sitting on the porch drinking lemonade, watching my kids play in the yard.
We will have a big garden with lots of vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers.
We would like to raise a cow for the beef.
And chickens for the eggs.
What do you think? Are we crazy? Could a couple of suburb-kids like us handle a farm?
