Can you guess why.....

this little girl
would be jumping for joy?!
We will not be moving to New York City! We have decided that we love the simple life we are creating here on our small farm for our children. The children wanted me to join them on top of the hay bales for a race, but I was able to talk them out of it when I reminded that I needed to take pictures to see who wins... It was girlie by a foot!

Congratulations to you all! I can't imagine giving up that lifestyle to live in a big city like NYC or, for that matter, even Toronto!

Oh hooray... I am tickled for you. I can NOT imagine moving to somewhere like that.

Hurrah! After meeting you last month and hearing in your voice how much you love your country lifestyle, I could not picture you being as happy surrounded by a big city.

Sometimes choices that seem foolish in the eyes of the world are most wise in the depths of the heart.
Good for you!

Exciting news indeed, and terrific photo's. How exciting for your family to know that home is where you are.
On a different note could I ask you to resend your pincushion parcel, your partner still hasn't received it.

thanks so much.

Oh good, I'm sure it was a tough choice, but I think staying put will end up the better choice in the long run...plus I'll still get to live my farm dreams out through your stories!

Glad to hear it, I think the country life is the best for raising kids. Watching nature up close, growing gardens, chasing lightning bugs, jumping on hay bales.....what could be better?
