It's Official.

On a drive out in the country one day, I sighed aloud and said, "I want to be a farmer."
And Chloe sighed and replied, "I want to be a farmer's daughter."

I wish I could tell you all the time we've spent driving around in the country, daydreaming about owning our own farm. It's a dream we all hold dearly.

And, as Jiminy Cricket once said, "If you don't have a dream, how can you have a dream come true?"

Our dream come true:

It's more than we'd dreamed of, honestly. A lot more.

Complete with a barn - and a red one, at that.
This picture is out the window above the front door - not a bad view, eh?
I only wish there were words to describe how excited I am as we venture into this new chapter in our lives. Thrilled, humbled, ecstatic, anxious. But none of them can completely describe the feeling.

It's official: we're farmers now.
