Tomorrow marks 9 years since the farm became ours.
I’ve been trying to think about what I want to write for the anniversary, and I haven’t been sure what to say.
Looking back at previous farm-iversary posts, year 4 feels closest to what I’m feeling right now.
Obviously, life has changed a lot since I wrote those words. But they’re still true. This place is special. I feel Matt and my Dad here, and I see meaning all around us. I don’t take that for granted at all.
But rather than being sentimental today, what I really want to do is celebrate.
Because we are about to embark on a new project.
It’s something I’ve wanted for a long time.
It’s a… garage.
I’ve been planning this for years–9 to be exact. Our official planning process with a contractor and blueprints and permits started in the fall. Demo is underway (the old indoor pool is finally going away). Construction might start this month, depending on the weather.
Nine years ago, during the home inspection.
I have so, so many more details to share. I think year 9 is going to be good. Stay tuned.
