Full Circle Again

We are moving, finally. After a year and a half of trying to move, things finally worked out.

My husband was offered a job in a new town on the opposite side of our state and after some heartfelt contemplation about the benefits of moving vs staying put, we grabbed onto our new adventure.

He started working over there three weeks ago and Little Bit and I are trying to get our two properties ready to sell. Last week, we went over to visit him and have a look around.

Oh my gosh!!! You guys are going to LOVE this area. I was so worried that we were leaving our clear water streams and land abounding with nature behind, but guesss what?

Over there, the rivers are clear, there is a National Scenic Riverway, and thousands of acres of National Forest land. I am absolutely sooooooooo excited. Just think of all the new places we will have to explore!

In fact, we’ve already started. Within this past week, we’ve already ventured down several pine tree lined mountain roads, looked for wild horses, hiked around a gorgeous mill, stood on an old rickety wooden bridge, rung the bell at an old schoolhouse, and seen water the color of a stunning blue ocean in an Ozark stream.

Oh, and get this. There is a fishing lake just north of our new town which is pretty cool. You see, about twenty two years ago, my husband and I lived at a lake and went fishing almost every night after work.

When we moved to Marshfield seventeen years ago, things came full circle (you can read about it here, if you like) and as crazy as it seems, my heart just told me, they are coming full circle again.

  1. So pleased that it’s finally all coming together, you’ve been in a state of flux for a long time. Looking forward to reading about your new journey and see the photos of course. 💜

        • I’m good, thank you. It is crazy- so much to do. We got a storage unit over there and have taken one load so far. My house looks like a storage building- ha ha. Plastic tubs everywhere!! My husband came home this weekend and helped me weed through the garage! Eeks! Where does all this stuff come from??? I want one of those huge dumpsters that you fill up and they haul away! 😊😊😊

          • You know, my neighbor did that for about three weeks before putting their house up for sale. That’s when hubby and I decided we better start pitching stuff now! I don’t envy you going through selling but the market here is good now

          • It may be a “cleaning out season.” Don’t need it? Get rid of it. Ha ha. I took a load of stuff yesterday. Yay!!! Oh good, glad to hear about the market there. I think our house will sell quickly. Just looking for a spot to land in the new town. Meeting with the realtor there on Thursday. The internet sure makes it easier to narrow options down.

  2. Jessica! <3 Best of luck on your new adventure! I'm certain this new chapter in your life will bring much goodness! And oh my word — those windows! Is that a pic from your soon to be new house! Gah! Those windows! <3 <3 <3

    • Thank you so much for what you said about the new chapter. That means so much to me. Leaving home is exciting and teary all in one breath.

      I wish those were my windows. One is an old one room schoolhouse. The other is an old National Scenic Riverways building at the entrance to a natural spring. I love reflections, and windows are sometimes the best mirrors. Thank you for your comments. 💕💕💕dows. The white one is from an old one roo

  3. Happy to see you are making some great changes. Sometimes it does take a while. The photos are beautiful; once again you have done a great job capturing the beauty of the scene. Best of luck on the move…and be sure you stock your truck with Rolos for the final drive over…. ;)

  4. Hello! I hope you have an exciting adventure infront of you. I have just moved to Newport, Wales with my fiance after a year of planning and its finally amazing accomplishing something after so long!

    • Hi.? Thank you for your comments. Oh my gosh! Congratulations! I can totally relate! We’ve been trying to move a year and a half… I’m happy for you that you are on the “moved” end of things! We are still house hunting, packing, and getting the house ready to sell. Those days in the woods are a real treat! ❤️

  5. Jessica, I am so happy for you and your family. The photo’s are amazing. I’m ure you will be very happy here! Best of luck on your new adventure!!

    • Hi sweetie! Thank you so much for commenting here! You make my heart smile. Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you like the photos. Mother Nature out-does her self over there for sure! Thank you for the best of luck! My husband was able to come home this weekend for the first time in a few weeks. When we saw his truck lights, Little Bit and I got so excited! When we move, we’ll see him every night!!! 🎉🦋🎉

    • Hiiiiiiiii!!!!!!! I’ve missed you SO much!! Thank you. I appreciate your kind words!! We’re heading over there today for a couple of days. Meeting with the realtor to see if we can find a new to us home. Have a few picked out to see. How’s Iowa? It’s pouring down rain here, which is not making me want to go outside and load my truck. Ha ha. We have a storage unit over there and I was planning on taking a load with us.

      • Sweet friend-I took it off the market during the holidays and hopefully will be putting it back this month. We are all well. You have had some changes! and Yay! to that. I have been so behind in blogging, but hope to catch up this week! can not wait to hear more about you! love Michele
