2011 Moving to Our New Off-Grid Homestead
Late in the summer we began clearing palmettos for our living area and long lane
We "camped" temporarily till our tiny house was ready...the animals were outside the fence and we were inside.
Real country livin'

Twenty years ago he proposed and I said Yes!
A few weeks before Christmas we finally moved into our tiny house
