I have a dream. A secret dream that many people probably don't know about me.
A dream to live on a farm. To own horses and several dogs. A few cows and maybe some chickens. A dream of life more simple. As of late, my dream has been fueled by a certain blog I read. A blog called The Pioneer Woman. I want to be The Pioneer Woman. I want to learn to be an amazing cook and to just take care of my kids and the farm and my animals. I want a front porch swing and a big country kitchen with a stained glass window. Maybe a creek that runs through the back yard.
I know some of you are laughing at me right now and thinking "you wouldn't last a day". But, you have no idea. I have dreamed about this for many many years.
There is a tension between this dream and living missionally in the heart of Austin. I haven't quite figured that part out yet.
But just know that if ever we move into a big house in the country someday...I haven't lost my mind. I've actually had a dream come true.
(Would that mean I can't wear cute shoes?)
