Over a year ago, my husband and I decided that we wanted to make a life change by moving to a very rural part of Minnesota. The move would allow us to be nearer one of our daughters who had just had a baby girl. Not only would the move allow us to be closer to family, but it would give us an opportunity to start fresh, out of the daily grind of the city – into a slower and more self sustainable lifestyle. In order to make this possible, we purchased some property in Minnesota – then when the time was right, put our home in Arkansas on the market for sale. Now the Arkansas home has sold, and we are in the process of tearing down the dilapidated home on the Minnesota property so we can build our small dream home.
I thought it might be interesting to note our day to day victories and dilemmas as we go… so – Here we go!
