My name is Valerie and I am the author of Our Someday Farm blog...my online journal to chronicle my family's efforts to move from "suburbanites" to "hobby farmers".
***Okay, "farmers" might be a stretch...at least as of today...but my husband and I do have a dream of owning several acres where we can raise barns and outbuildings...chickens and vegetables...and most importantly...our three precious kiddos. One day...someday...
We currently live on 1-acre, in a tiny subdivision, in a one-stoplight town, on the outskirts of Kansas City. We built our beautiful and perfectly-perfect Greek Revival farmhouse in 2001. In fact, I love our home so much that if we could just pick it up and move it to 10 or 15-acres out in the country I would be as happy as a clam.

Unfortunately, moving the house is not a possibility...
...and, well, I'd really love a new kitchen!
So, this past Fall, after hours of discussion and "what-if" dreaming, lazy Sundays spent driving around northeast Kansas, and pinning lots of farmhouse facades on Pinterest my husband and I decided to take that very first baby step forward and hire a realtor to help us locate land.
We're still looking...and with the sluggish economy we're not in a hurry to list our home...
...which means I have plenty of time to "update" our current living quarters.
Because three kids and a dog will do a number on your walls and carpet. ;)
I would love it so much if you would join me on this journey of home renovation...housing relocation...and interior design exploration! I think it is so exciting to get to start with a blank slate...don't you?
P.S. I blog regularly at her Little Ways which is my personal blog dedicated to issues of faith and family. My hope is for this blog to be dedicated to our relocation/building process and interior/exterior design decisions.
