Every time I go outside I have to stop and stare out at this view. I’ve been doing this since we bought the farm 3 years ago. I would just look out and imagine what it would look like if the barn was alive again, and if that 30-acre field of cash crop was actually a pasture full of horses. I had even started cleaning up the barn in preparation. ⁣

Well, life happened and getting horses just wasn’t meant to be. I was really disappointed, and looking at that lifeless barn every day only made me more sad. I was so discouraged that I was ready to have the barn torn down altogether. ⁣

Once our Little Farmers were born, something inside of me sparked. It wasn’t about me anymore. My passions were relit and we changed headings towards a different dream. ⁣

Fast forward to today - commitments have been made, deposits paid, fences built... we have gone ALL IN and are working our asses off to turn this sleepy little farm into a full-blown highland cattle family ranch. ⁣

I was devastated when I had to give up on my plan for horses, but now when I look out beyond the barn, I am filled with so much hope + excitement for my family’s future and for the life we are creating for ourselves. ⁣

At the end of the day, I think some dreams have to be crushed in order to lay the foundation for the one that was truly meant to happen.
