We decided in the winter of 2009, that was going to be our last winter in Pittsburgh, PA. My husband and I were both born and raised there, but we were tired of the relentless cold, and shoveling that winter brought us.
I was in law enforcement, and my husband, construction. We already owned the property next door to my fathers home, and began getting ourselves ready for a life change.
And what a change it has been! We soon found ourselves with goats, chickens and donkeys. More dogs, more cats, a couple ducks and guineas. Having always dreamed of living on a farm, I am in my happy place.
We are truly living our dream, although, when dreaming it I imagined a little less work, and a little more profit…but that’s okay. We’ve discovered things we didn’t even know we were missing!
