We Bought A...

FARM!

If you've been following along on my Instagram you might've heard the news by now. Originally we told you we were moving to Austin, but we didn't tell you was that we bought a 30 acre farm in a small town just East of Austin.

Below are some pictures and updates I've shared on Instagram so far of the property! If you haven't, be sure you follow me on Instagram and subscribe here for updates!

 June 26, 2018  “Blink you’ll miss it, USA” . . . Thankful, excited, stopped in my tracks by the wonder, and all of the hope this piece of land brings to me. Grabbing my boots, a cooler of beer, and headin’ South so, so soon ❤️ This Texas girl’s heart is so full.

 July 19, 2018"  I always thought my favorite place would be my hometown beach, or high up in the mountains. As much as I love Texas I never thought I’d find a piece of land that I would love more than any other place I’ve left my heart. I feel at home here. I feel at peace. I feel happy, whole, and like my soul has been set on fire. This place is our future. It’s the dream I’ve had for years that’s about to become a reality, and it’s the piece of land I never knew we needed. I cannot wait to watch this land transform over the next two years, I can’t wait to watch our family grow, run, and explore on this land, I can’t wait for the family reunions, thousands of memories, and the moments that take place on this land."

 August 9, 2018  "Last night I booked  #OurAvieJo  and me flights to Austin for our first ever girls work week. It’ll be our first work trip alone and while I’m a little hesitant I could never put into words how pumped I am for this trip! . . . Pat and and I did a thing earlier this year that has snowballed into chasing (another) one of our craziest, and biggest dreams and while we won’t be sharing with you exactly what we’re up to until the beginning of 2019 I’m so excited to share that we did a crazy thing and bought. A. Farm. Yep. We bought a farm, you read that right! . . . We’ve been looking for property to build and create our lives on for a few years and this one fell into Pat’s hands on a random search on our drive home from Austin one weekend. After a lot of back and forths we closed on it in June and have kept it a working farm ever since! We have the best team who plants, maintains and harvests our crops and we are so, so grateful (and still shocked?) that we have a piece of land that we will be able to build on. . . . Today I legally filed for our LLC and if there’s anything  @patscales48  has implemented into our family from  @nighthawk_ak ’s life lessons it’s to celebrate the little things- so tonight, I’m eating a popsicle and celebrating the small thing, that will one day become a big thing ❤️ I will be sharing with you sneak peaks, updates, and more than enough pictures with you all throughout the next few months here and on  #EmbracingMessiness . These work trips will be so full and I cannot wait to bring you along with us as we start building for our future."

 August 24, 2018  "This was the first time we ever stepped foot on the property we would work hard and fight to make ours. I’m so glad we had my camera that day because there are so many pictures we took that I will forever cherish. When I stumbled across this one today it stopped me in my tracks of how happy I am. We had no idea if this would even become ours, but man I left this land and prayed to God that if my dreams were worth chasing that we’d find a way to make it work.  I’ll never forget how I knew it was “the one” as soon as we pulled into the dirt road driveway. It was instant. Something I had been searching for for almost three years was finally something real. And I found it almost 200 miles south of where I had been searching. This whole process has been so strange- it’s been a constant challenge of pushing me to grow. It’s made me learn how to let go of the plans I had in my head, and taught me to embrace the uncomfortable uncertain. Truthfully, I never saw myself leaving Dallas. But I’m slowly learning how to leave a part of my heart there and find another part of it in a tiny Texas town. There’s a Craig Morgan song “I Can’t Wait to Stay” and every time I walk back onto this land it plays in my head. There’s going to be a lot of back and forths for the next few years, but when my team’s work is done and mine is ready to start, I can’t wait to stay. I can’t wait to smile this big every day."
