|Some of these tubs I have had since freshman year in college. One day I hope to unpack them all||!|
|Brandon got me flowers for my birthday to decorate our entryway at his mothers house. Sadly we were only able to enjoy them for about a month before we moved.|
When Brandon went into the police academy I decided to move back into an apartment in my parents basement because it was closer to my job. Unfortunately this meant that my puppies had to live outside for a couple months but I had a nice set up for them.

|The house when we first moved in.|
I have named our little house "The Temporary Homestead". It's not too pretty but for now it works. I can slowly start little farm projects like raising dairy goats and chickens, making my own cleaning and beauty products, planting a garden, having a compost pile, picking berries that grow wild, I can have a clothes line, we used a wood-stove for heat, and cut the wood for this wood-stove. Now that I have a real kitchen I can cook a lot more make basic staples like bread. I also have a lot more storage space in this kitchen so I was able to create a stockpile and only buy items when I have coupons and can get them for an extremely low price.
|You can see our house to the right of this photo. The house is surrounded by hundreds of acres of mostly fields that the owners rent to a beef cattle farmer.|
