This post is different.
It's not about my kitchen redo, or some great junk finds I came across.
It's about what's burning in my heart right now...
And honestly, I can't sit still over this.
I describe this restlessness as a rose, just ready to burst open.
Maybe, just maybe, you've been here too.
Have you ever had a dream about something you feel a passion to fulfill?
However, may not have the means, or know how,
or any idea of where to begin?
Well, mine started, sad to say, last year when my mom passed away.
She was, to say the least, an incredible decorator.
She was the perfect grandmother to my kids.
And the best mom-
She taught me how to sew, cook, garden, shop, decorate...
and a love for things old and sentimental.
Every single creative trait I have, came from her.
And since she's been gone, I've gone creative crazy!
So, where is all this going, you ask?
My heart longs for the simple country life.
Life on the farm.
(which we now have 2.)
And an old barn
Because my heart's desire (and my sweet hubby's)
is to run a farm
that would bless my family
and many others.
With animals, vegetable gardens, hayrides, flower gardens,
pond fishing, baking, bonfires, parties, fellowship...
and huge seasonal Barn Sales.
Where we can paint and refurbish old vintage finds,
cook, sew, build, and create everyday.
That's what we want to do.
Our pastor said it best,
"Until you are fulfilling God's plan for your life,
(your passion, your love,)
you won't be able to stand still."
I'm so inspired by these blogs I follow:
And so many others running their own shops
and making their dreams come true.
Since I've started blogging, I have been inspired, encouraged, lifted,
blessed, amazed, and awestruck
to follow my dream.
Your ideas, your words, your passion, your families, your projects,
it all comes to life on this silly computer screen.
I wanted to say thanks to you, my new friends-
for making me feel like I can go follow this dream-
and you'll be there.
Just pray it will happen...
What about you, are you following a dream?
(Got the question idea from Funky Junk Donna thanks :))
