Desperately Seeking....

Serenity? Well, kind of, but that's not quite right...

Sanity? Close, but again, not quite right...

Simplicity! Ding ding ding, winner!

This last trip up north solidified it for us. We are not urban, or even suburban, people. We crave the peace and quiet that comes with not being able to see (or hear!) your neighbors, and of being able to tend to a garden without worrying about breaking some bullshit city ordinance. We fit in a place where "going for a walk" means spending an hour travelling the perimeter of your own property, instead of your neighborhood.

It's going to take some time, and planning, and sacrifice. But, we have a definitive goal in mind. In about 16 months, when Grumps has his degree and is fully certified to work anywhere in the state (and many other states, for that matter), we'll be looking for a new area to call home. Not necessarily a new state, but most definitely a new area...

The simple life is good for our souls, and we need to make it our everyday!

Woo! Getting to a place where you fit, and knowing what that place is, goes a long ways towards peace of mind. Happy for you, yes I am!

How exciting! I would love to live in a more natural setting, but I'm afraid I wouldn't fit very well.

I say you move to Oregon! There are a lot of property in my town with lots of acreage. And you can even get a property with a vineyard on it! ;o)

There's an awful lot to be said for knowing where you want to be. Even if you're not there yet.
