Hello!  This is my first post in the blogging world and I’m super excited to start this new journey.  Since my husband and I are soon to be empty nesters, we have decided to one day move from the suburbs of DFW to a small town in south Texas.  You know, where most people have bad hair days, it’s hot, humid and can make a girl like me get a little testy (insert rolling eyes).   The property has been in the family over a hundred years and we inherited the old farmhouse which was a wedding promise to his great grandmother.  How romantic is that?!?!  I will post all about how we’re repairing/fixing it up and how I’ve redecorated it with my love of farmhouse/vintage/repurposed/rustic style.  I’ll also chat about how we are going to make this transition work and why we have decided to become hobby ranchers.  Oh my golly, even as I type that out, I cannot believe it.  And I say hobby because the Mister will still have his IT Genius job and I’ll keep on decorating.  I look forward to becoming great friends.  Follow along so you don’t miss a thing!

BTW – The picture is of the Misters childhood headboard that I repurposed into a welcome sign.  I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and stood it against a tree just up the drive.  I’ll blog about that soon! 😉

    Cindy, I’m so excited for you and James and can’t wait to see all the fun things you do to bring that farmhouse back to life! Maybe you should turn the blog into a book when you’re done.😀
