The Property

Since Terran and I first talked about dreams one of ours has been to own a little piece of land outside of town. We weren’t particular about the city or state this piece land fell into, weren’t too particular about the size of it a couple acres or 50 acres, we just wanted a little space to spread our wings and let our dogs run.

Terran grew up with a lot of space to play in Canada, being able to hunt, run, and explore right outside his back door, so it seemed natural he would want the land. For me owning property was always the ideal dream. To not have neighbors a stones throw away, to have a garden any size one wanted with a few fruit trees was the dream my parents had and it passed to me.

Last fall we bought our property. After looking and looking the last few years and a few false starts on other pieces of land Terran and I found the piece that is all we wanted. Terran wanted some wild area that would stay rough, while I wanted some places for grass, a garden, fruit trees, and a goat. Our place has it all and then some extra.

Standing at our gate. We had to wait almost 6 monthes for our closing to go through. We waited a long time for this moment.

Walking up our long bushy driveway.

Kojo running through one of the wild areas. We haven't exlpored all of the hidden places yet.

Sitting in one of our large cottonwood trees that were a huge draw for us.

We are so glad that we waited for God’s perfect timing and for His best for our future home. It would have been so easy during the last few years to have pushed for something that seemed great to us, but wasn't the best. God really does bless waiting on Him.

Proud owner of 8 acres,

Kaiser has been stunned into silence and inactivity by the sight of Uncle T. working the cat and seeing the dogs running around....I think this video will be watched over and over. :}

It's so good to see a glimpse of your land. I can hardly wait to come visit in person this summer.
