It’s becoming real…

The house has been on the market for 10 days and we got a call from our realtor last night that she is expecting an offer this morning.  A couple came back to look last night for the second time and are very interested in our property.  I would be lying if I said I won’t miss our current homestead.  We have put so much work into it during the time we have owned it.  When we purchased it was barely livable.  Today, it is a flourishing property with fruit and nut trees, a huge garden, enough room to raise all your own meat and plenty of room left over to expand.  We have grown quite a following in the Gilbert, AZ area.  We have had some amazing customers and have really loved being able to show people our farm and how/why we do things.  Most people are amazed (as are we) that we have been able to do all of this while still working full time.

This is NOT a time for looking back though!  Our dream has been to be able to homestead full time.  To finally have the freedom we have been so hungry for.  To finally have time to spend with our children before they are grown up.  We know it’s going to be a ton of work.  There will be times I am sure we will have second thoughts about our decision.  But we truly feel like God is leading us and we just need to follow his lead.
