Homestead, finally!

I really feel like something is changing within me. I really feel like I can begin to call my home and property a homestead. After we planted our apple trees, I began to really feel a passion for self sufficiency and growing as much food as we can for our family from our own land. We used to joke and say we would call our homestead "Green Acre" because, well, it is supposedly one acre - feels a lot bigger when I am mowing it - and I may just go ahead and get a sign made up.
I feel so blessed to have this home.
I had a group of kiddos over here this morning for a mom's Bible study and to see them all in the sandbox, on the swings, in the grass...outside....made me feel so good!
Here's to a bountiful harvest!
