I hinted about it here and can now share with you some exciting news!
Not far from where we are, for the past few months some diggers and super sized machinery have been busy making a new road. Now their work is done. If all goes to plan, on a tiny block on this new road we will put down bricks, and call it home. Our home. Honestly I feel so blessed I could cry.
We are determined to build what we need and no more. Over the years I've learned the delights and freedom of having less. Of living minimal and turning my back on excess. It's a great way to live and an ever evolving journey. Luckily (in a looking-on-the-bright-side kind of way) our budget also wants us to build what we need and no more! It's a tricky balance. As a family of five we have to think about the next five to ten years and how our needs might change as the kids grow. We have been working on a plan though, and are at the stage now of fine tuning it. Its all very exciting for us and sometimes I have to pinch myself, and ask is this really happening?
I can't wait to share the journey with you, and blog this adventure brick by brick.
