As many of you may (or may not) know I have a thing for "The Farm Life". Yep, I do. I also have a thing for the animals that make up "The Farm Life". Yep, I do.
Over the past several years my attraction to life on the farm has grown more and more each day. And just when I thought I had gotten to the point where I had it all under control it actually intensified. Im pretty sure this happened when I started blogging and began to read different farm blogs. It heightened even more when I began to make friends with the authors behind those blogs. In a sense, the blogs gave me the inside look that I was craving. The ins and outs of what life on a farm has to offer. And for that I am very thankful. So very thankful to all of you out there that have a farm, big or small, near or far, many animals or just a few, that allow others to see inside and get a chance to experience it, if only thru the pictures and the words of your blog.
As much as that desire has been there to have a life on the farm...it has yet to come to fruition. And even tho I feel like my journey to attain my life on the farm began quite some time ago there has not been much tangible progress thus far. In saying that, I have decided I will take a step in becoming that much closer to where I would like to be. A step that to many may seem like something quite small, but to me it is a simple way to feel like I have made some progress. A step that lets me know that my dream of a farm life really IS possible. And that no matter how long it may take me to get there....I just have to keep on believing.
When I began blogging there really wasnt any set meaning behind it all. I just wanted to have a way to keep track of things that happened in my life...memories, I guess. I thought maybe I would take some pictures, write a few things down and be done with it. I mean, I wanted to maintain it and write in it consistently, but it wasnt really headed in any specific direction. I sorta threw a title on there that encompassed my everyday life and that was that. Now, almost 2 years later I feel like I know what direction I would like my blog to go. Heck, maybe this whole time it was staring me right in the face, but I was too busy looking to see it.
I am changing the title of my blog. Everything else will stay the same...you wont have to change the address(if everything goes well)! I hope that you guys will hang out with me as my journey unfolds. I would really like that. Im hoping for a lot of fun times, but I also realize there may be some of those crappy ones along the way, too. It wouldnt be a real journey if there werent some of both, right?
