After my son was born I yearned to move back even more. I missed my family, life in the country, the smell of cows in my backyard, the quiet, the seasons. I feel in my heart that it is better for my son living here, close to the family, being able to run and play in the backyard, getting dirty playing in the mud, and enjoying all the things I did as a kid too. I am so happy to be back.
Some days I feel like I am living in a dream, a dream I have had for sooooo long. I hope that in the next year or two we will find our dream house and I can continue towards my dreams of a more self sustained living. I hope to keep chickens and bees eventually and grow my own vegetables and we live in a great place to do all those things.
We are living in Ithaca, one of the most green, eco-friendly cities in the country. I absolutely love living here. There is so much to do and so many unique people. I love calling this place HOME!
