Our Story coming soon!
"Built from Scratch: A Love Story" coming soon!
2000 was a banner year and the toodoo about Y2k and all the scary predictions came and went with much adoo about nothing. But then we had always strived to be self reliant and live out from the bustle of city lights so the longing for bigger spaces and double digit acres didnt have much to do with the calendar and current events. The longing and itching to move on to bigger and better spaces, to start from scratch and build again was getting stronger.
We were outgrowing our 7 acres after 27 years of living, birthing, and growing. My hub was dreaming of acres of land and lots of it. Room to roam, hunt, fish. To work and grow some more.
1966 was another banner year as a 16 year old was man-size in both determination and stick-to-it-ive-ness. Determined to have something of his own he had saved his summer wages of $1.25 and bought a house for $5000 cash.
1973 was the summer that changed the course of my life when I made the choice to come to the US and be with my sister in the dorms on a college campus. I found my man by being her tag along to Greene Gate Farm during school holidays since our parents were missionaries on the other side of the globe. Roger had already decided life was just fine as a single guy living at home on the farm and working a weekday job for Xerox. He certainly wasn't expecting a 14 year-old gangly blonde to show up that year on Greene Gate Farm.
OUR STORY fills the pages of "Built from Scratch: A Love Story" in my lifebook coming in early 2020.
