we considered a field and bought it!

that's the text message that Luke sent me as he handed over the check to the former owner of 2 acres of land in New Albany, IN.

we are land owners.

we are (almost) farmers. we're on the cusp of a lot of changes - who knows what life will be like for us? we've never started our own business, we've never farmed 2 acres of land before (though we have gardened every square inch of green earth we could get our hands on), and neither of us have ever had a job that quits with the onset of winter. but we've also never felt so ready and certainly didn't believe that we would start living the dream so quickly.

we went out to the farm on Sunday to do a little planning and took a few pictures. I'm excited to share the changes in our life with you and am eager to show you how this plot of land will change as we get our hands in the dirt!

So excited!!! Little D has a farmer and a milkmaid with her farm set and I told her today that their names were Luke and Katherine and they grow food. I can't wait to know more!
