The Invasion Begins

Imagine with me, for a few short moments, a bright sunny day. Rolling hills behind your house, the warmth of the sun begging you to come out and play. Sounds wonderful doesn’t it? Not to brag… But that was our past Saturday it was beautiful! The Cowboy made me breakfast in bed, which was delicious, and we straightened up the Homestead. As we got around we decided to go drive to a larger town in our area to make a return and enjoy the day. I know what you’re thinking “where is this story going?” I promise it’s a good story. After getting ready to leave I open our front door to our neighbors dog sitting on the front steps waiting for us. Adorable I know! image (9) While distracted by the friendly dog I failed to see a black lizard slide under our screen door. It didn’t take long before I let out a shout. As I stood on the front steps with the dog, I begged The Cowboy to remove the lizard who was now running around our living room. The poor man… After much searching the lizard had vanished. I’m telling the truth here, one second it’s body was scurrying into our Homestead, and the next second it’s gone. It’s probably getting fat secretly eating my pretzel chips… So now there’s a lizard living with us, although it might have been a much more vicious animal I’m still less than thrilled. black-white-tegu

The Homestead Sneak Peek

I realize that the majority of my readers have not seen any part of The Homestead The Cowboy and I will be living in after July 12th.

In honor of the wedding being less than 30 days away here is a sneak peek of our Homestead!





The table and chairs were a wedding present from our sweet friends, and I’m simply in love with them!

And look at the view from the back of the property, our Homestead is that little white speck.

I can’t wait to finish making this house a home once The Cowboy and I are both finally in it ❤


What does your homestead look like?
