We bought a piece of property about 18 months ago.
It was fully wooded in a ranch type subdivision.
It's not in a city.
It was a compromise...he wanted country, I wanted city.
He got a few acres of country and I'm 10 minutes away from all the city necessities...like...shopping.
Approximately once a week, we'd drive to the lot and mosey around checking out everything going on in the subdivision and surrounding area.
We'd take a leisurely stroll through the property imagining the layout of the home, finding tracks of wildlife, and new foliage.
These are Beauty Berries. Have you ever heard of them? I hadn't...the animals don't really like them but if all their other favorites are gone, they'll munch on these.
Being rural, we had to take care of a lot of things on our own, one such item was ordering a culvert.
We had to purchase it, but the county set it.
We were proud of our new addition:
I know...it's the simple things, right?
Then yesterday, we saw this big boy parked beside the lot.
This picture doesn't really do it justice...it's huge!
We had drawn out a site map for the driver and he began the task of removing underbrush.
(Kinda reminded me of Fern Gully...did you ever watch that with your kids?)
Yep, the day had finally arrived...site clearing day!
After months and months of planning we were on our way!
