This past weekend we had an unusually busy schedule with friends, some we don't get to see often, but we do try and meet up for birthdays and other special occasions. It was a night out or two for dinner and a chance to act like adults sans a farm and large family.
We had a great time, as always, and enjoyed catching up with so many people we do not see everyday or every week. It's like we have two lives. We have friends who live similar lifestyles to ours with a brood of children and a bookshelf of home school books and then we have friends who live a suburban life with private schools and a couple of kids. We love them both, really.
We were in the car driving home when Devin said, "You know for all of the people who admire what we do and wish they could do it, there aren't many who even try."
We have heard from so many folks and friends who say how they would love to have more kids or would love to keep bees or would love to farm and home school.
So why not do it? What's holding you back?
I figure you've got one life. One chance. Go for it.
I personally do not want to look back and wish I had gotten that family cow or stayed home to raise my kids or learned to spot a queen honey bee from a frame of a thousand bees.
I am living it everyday. I wanted to do it and so I gave it a try.
Life is full of possibilities if you imagine it and if you try.
Is there anything holding you back?
I will be back Friday with a post about hair and one way you can get a handle on that too!
