Home is....

Where my heart is....


Some days it's so hard to leave.
There are errands to run, groceries to buy,
but I just cannot force myself to leave home!
Yesterday was one such day.


I thought I would share some pictures that I took,
to show you my world.


And maybe you will understand,
why sometimes leaving is so hard....


A few years ago, we added an additional 12 acres of adjoining land to the farm....
in hopes that one or more, or all of our kids will one day want to build a life here...
to carry on our legacy.
This acreage is on the northern edge of our land, down a path through the woods....


with a vista that makes me swoon.


Rolling hills in the distance, farmland in the middle...
The acreage is now a cornfield, but someday???



And so I took the day to just appreciate my home.
With camera in hand, I set out to capture its essence.


And because so much of what I love is the animals that I care for....


I had to include them also!


It seems I am surrounded by camera hogs!


Though most days are solitary,
I am never alone.


So many loving souls to visit...


With one thing in common....


home!


No matter where life takes me...
there's no place on earth quite like it!

We have no animals, other than our two pups, no crops, and only 3 acres, and yet sometimes I go for days without leaving home. Having just a bit of land around you makes one feel a contentment like no other. Love your photos and vistas today!
