My introduction

This is my first blog, I'm not sure how interesting it is going to be, but I wanted to give it a go. I currently live in the suburbs of Delaware but for the last year have been longing for a simpler life that is more in touch with the Earth. Mark, my husband put in for a tranfer so we can move somewhere where we can get some property. We are still waiting to hear from his company but have it narrowed down to 3 possible locations: Kingsport, TN, Spartanburg, SC or Winder, GA. If anyone is familiar with any of these locations I'd love to hear your input. Ultimately, it won't be up to us, it all depends on where an opening pops up. Kingsport is our first choice but also the least likely to happen. I've been really practicing my trusting the universe with this one! I have to trust that wherever we end up is where we are meant to be.

We are hoping for 5-10 acres where we can have a vegetable garden, set up a medicine wheel, and raise some chickens. We also want to revert some of our land to native habitat. I am a backyard habitat steward with NWF so native gardening is a passion of mine. I dream of having a place where I can rip out all the non-natives that have moved in and replace them with native plants that benefit wildlife. I have a small backyard habitat here but drean of doing much more!

Well, that's about enough for now!
