Life on the farm. The dream I never could put my finger on but have been building towards my whole life. A connection to something that I could dig deep within and pour my heart and soul toward. A lifelong project. A legacy. A place to raise our boys. A place to be the best wife, mother, friend and creative I can possibly be, and better yet: find ME.
It all started with a cross country road trip in our Airstream from our family home in Florida. The hunt to find us. A search that, if we’re being completely honest, we had no idea how it would turn out. A year we will never forget. It changed us and made us want to fight for what we loved the most. Each other. As cheesy as it sounds, it’s the truth. When you put your whole family plus two dogs into a 200 square foot home on wheels for a year, you will figure out very quickly that communication is everything! Have you ever lived tiny? Or even thought about it? All I can say is DO IT! It will change you forever. Your kids and spouse will thank you (not at first, but later. This I promise you!).
So here we are. In California. With a farmhouse. And farm animals. And an orchard. And a kitchen garden that requires a ridiculous amount of work. Learning and growing along side each other as we all find our way. Each of us with big goals and even bigger dreams.
Some of those dreams include opening up our space for friends and all the people we meet along the journey. Selling our fruits and vegetables because we can’t possibly eat them all ourselves (though we will try!), and a you-pick-em barn, with the most beautiful space to cut and style your own bouquets from our expansive garden of dahlias, ranunculus and more. More than just beautiful flowers and a creative space to play, we want a community. When you’re here, you’re a part of our family. Stay for an hour, or the whole day. Breathe in the fresh air, attempt to tire your eyes of the beauty of the Pastures of Heaven, and allow your mind to wander. After all, nature is a lot cheaper than therapy.
Welcome to our farm. I hope you know that the daydreams you let your self get lost in can absolutely come true. So dream hard and work even harder because your dreams are worth fighting for…even if they make absolutely no sense to anyone but you.
