Drum Roll Please….

So, our big announcement…

Well, a big development happened this last weekend.

I mean huge!



It was totally unexpected and turned our lives upside down.

All our plans for the summer are are scrapped. Everything has changed.

And it’s the best news I’ve had in 19 months!

Are you ready for it?


Yep, you read that right. We’re moving back to Nevada. Hopefully in just a couple months!

Now, it’s still not set in stone and we haven’t actually done anything besides start clearing out cabinets and begin a garage sale pile. But that in and of itself is a huge step. The dining table is full of stuff to sell.


Piled high!

And Mom and Dad are both on board. We’re moving as soon as we can get the house ready and on the market and sold!

But how are we going to do that? We don’t even have a building permit yet, let alone a finished house to move into. And won’t for a while.

Well, Mom and Dad have decided that they would be quite comfortable living in a travel trailer on the property while we build. They even have a brand new one all picked out and will be purchasing it soon!

So they’ll have their trailer and we’ll have ours, and we’ll all be living on the homestead soon!

This of course means no gardens this year. But I’m ok with that.

It means getting all those little projects around the house done (or deciding to just leave them), and I’m totally on board with that.

It means lots and lots of work and very little down time, and in a way I’m looking forward to that.

It means that our prayers (and those of a bunch of other people) have been answered.

And that is a wonderful thing!

About Maridy

Hi, I'm Maridy. I have many interests in life. Right now, my husband and I and our two girls (ages 14 and 7), along with a couple of dogs currently live in a 33ft trailer while we build our house on our homestead property in Northern Nevada (Castle Rock Homestead). Follow us on that journey to building our high desert homestead from the ground up! I also have a passion for hiking and have a blog for that, too. (Journey in the Wilderness) Join me there as I explore the beautiful outdoor landscapes of Northwestern Nevada and Eastern California. And finally, I love historical costuming. Though I haven't been able to do much of that in recent years, I'm hoping that "once the house is built" I'll be able to get back into it more. See what all we've done with that on my Yesteryear Productions blog.
