First Post

Spring 2010

I am sitting in my basement tonight writing this first post. I just finished locking the chickens in their coop for the night and my little dog Chase is always happy to help. The fire is blazing on this cold Virginia night as the wind whips around our house. It seems the last year the wind has been really bad in our neck of the woods.

Before I go any further maybe I should tell you a little more about me and why I decided to become a blogger. It all started one cold rainy night…. not… so seriously… I decided to write this blog as a memory bank not only for myself, but for any kids God decides to bless us with. We have been trying to start a family for a while now, but no luck yet. I have faith God will allow us a blessing when it is his time, so I just go on with daily life until it happens.

My husband and I got married in 2008 and have been together since 2006. We moved to a little piece of property in upper Virginia and have tried to set up a nice life for ourselves. Yet, we still have always had a secret ambition to move out west and start our own ranch or farm with some animals, land, and a nice place to raise our kids like we were raised. We have a couple of Dogs our oldest is a 3-year-old black lab/blue tick named Baxter and a 1-year-old terrier mix named Chase. They have their own personalities, good and bad habits, but I wouldn’t trade them for anything (except maybe my husband if I had to). Baxter is a therapy dog. I can take him to schools, nursing homes, libraries, and any place that need him to cheer someone up or encourage reading in kids.

My father lives with my husband and I, as he was paralyzed in 2005 and can not live on his own anymore. Sometimes its tough, but other times a blessing.

That is the basics…

More to come…
