Movin' to the country

I feel as though I kinda left y'all hanging last week...
You know we listed our house for sale & sold it, but now what are we doing?

Last night I was reading through all of my favorite blogs, 
when I found this download from the precious Lay Baby Lay
and as I read it, I couldn't help but smile. 
This is why we sold our house...

We are moving! Moving to the country.
We've purchased two acres and are mid-design process with an architect for building our home!

I don't actually have plans to blow up our tv, but our hearts are yearning for a slower pace of life, 
we want space for our kids to run and play and dream, 
and we know God is calling us to that place. 

Last spring, Hubby came to me with his ideas for moving, 
that he felt the Lord had placed on his heart.
I 'm sure I was hesitant and had a lot of questions, as I don't readily jump for joy in the face of change,
but now I can hardly wait to be there, out in the country.

I promise to share details with y'all about the house, and I hope to have lots of good advice to share with all of you about what I learn through the house design and building process!

Curious what the style will be? 
Follow me on Pinterest, when I am not packing our taking care of our babies, 
I am pinning my favorite home and design ideas.

For now, it's back to packing up our current house,
we move out October 30th! 

(disclaimer:: the chorus of "Spanish Pipedream" by John Prine (as pictured above) is the only part of that song that applies to our lives. I listened to the song in it's entirety as I was writing this post ... nothing else about it relates to us. at. all. ha!)



  1. Oh my goodness! My husband and I talk about this all the time. Hopefully it will one day become a reality. I am very excited to follow you through this process and learn a thing, or two!

  2. Liz! I stumbled upon your blog and love it! I used to follow your other family blog and I see you've changed to this one! So excited for you and Josh in this new adventure and following your dreams! Looking forward to reading more about the updates! :)


thank you for your sweet comments! i hope you enjoyed your time at a peace of home today.
