I didn't plan it this way. This is all my husband's doing. He was determined to have an acreage out in the country, and he found it. I have always preferred the beach or the the city, but I went along. We've had those, including fifteen years in Maui. I figured it was his turn.
Welcome to Dragonfly Ranch
The Gloomy "Before"
Husband couldn't have been more pleased, and quickly went to work.
Me, on the other hand...it took all his powers of persuasion to get me here, and I came, firmly wagging my finger and shaking my head "NO". In the two years since, he's been on a mission to make it habitable and comfortable for me. We are not unlike these two, from the 60's sitcom, Green Acres. He wants the country life, she prefers Manhattan.
I resisted at first, but it's growing on me. Nature and beauty are drawing me in. I am discovering new things here. On this blog, I am pondering the transformation of the place... and me, right along with it. I am figuring out how to keep it rustic enough for him, civilized enough for me, nurturing for all who enter--a place of grace.
Gracious living, gracious loving, gracious giving--that's my goal.
This is my journey into a new way of life.
