on our journey

One tree. You are probably laughing out loud over there in the middle of America or even on the east coast (my beloved homeplace) but do you know how hard it is to literally find a home with A SINGLE TREE that will fit six people and is under $1m in Southern California?! LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

Something different. That is what we wanted to give our kids in a sea of screens that our world had become. So we set out on an unforgettable journey to own a once in a lifetime (probably falling down) piece of property that we could call home.

All in, we saw 10, 25, 37 houses?! So many. 30+ offers, 11 outbids (to INSANITY), one canceled offer, one win later and we landed. On 45 acres. Are we crazy? Highly likely. Will I grow old saying at least we tried to give our kids something different with what we had to work with? Hell yes. Am I literally staring at cracked windows, hanging wires, and raw concrete floor that we swore we could DIY in a week (LOL)? Also yes.

So welcome! Welcome to our family’s story, I am so glad you are here to be part of it. My dream is to share this journey with you, from watching me learn how to keep a plant alive all the way to learning how to use a power drill with finesse (Mark is still afraid and continues to hide it from me, I’m getting better!!). I hope the stories I will share here with you bring a smile to your face, maybe a few needed laughs, and give you incentive to take a step on the path of your own ‘life inspired’.
