SO...we bought a...

Piece of land!  Wowsers!  We are officially country folk and David is already itching to buy a tractor...which we would love to do if they weren't so cuckoo expensive!  Anyone out there have a tractor they don't want?  

It's exciting to own land...we are excited to "work" it, excited to grown things on it, excited to have goats or cows and even bees on it, and we can't wait to get rid of a lot of the cactus.  Land out here is pretty expensive and this land for sure is not the prettiest, it's not the most special, it's not spectacular, but we love it and are excited to someday call it home.  First we have to deal with some things that make this property pretty "special" (nice word for busted).  But I really see so much potential once it gets cleaned up and we figure out what to do with the 200ft long turkey barn in need of a major facelift:)

I am sure I will be writing more about the journey with this land.  It is such a big part of our lives and it is quite fascinating to me because as an artist I feel like I can usually visualize potential and a creative way to remodel or spruce up...but I am getting major creative block here trying to figure out what to do with all of the obstacles (turkey barn, busted 60's house, the ditch, overhead electrical wires, 3 little busted sheds, the plethora of mesquite trees, and the cactus that is literally every step).  But alas we will take it step by step and hopefully end up with a lovely spot:)
