Merry Christmas Eve!
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you know Andy and I have been looking at land to build our future mountain home. Almost every weekend for the past six months, we’ve driven up to the mountains to find our dream spot. The first day of Christmas post is sharing with you the land for our future home. I thought it would be fun to take a Christmas picture of where we want to live.
Actually, I need to correct myself. This picture was taken NEAR the actual spot where we want to buy, but we couldn’t quite make it to the ACTUAL spot. As you can see from the picture, there’s quite a bit of snow in the area. There are signs posted everywhere that say snow chains are required for the roads up there. Since we don’t live there yet, we obviously don’t have snow chains on our vehicles.
We got fairly close to the actual land we want to buy, but when we got to the roads that weren’t plowed anymore, Andy made the wise decision that we shouldn’t go any further. In fact, it took us almost an hour to get back on the main plowed road because we were in some pretty deep snow. Some guys on snowmobiles tried to help pull us back onto the main road using straps that Andy had in his truck. After that didn’t work, we finally ended up turning around on somebody’s private drive that hadn’t been plowed either.
Don’t think that this has discouraged us, however, from moving forward with our dream. We’re not going to let a little snow stop us from the lifestyle we want. We’ll just be better prepared when we finally make it happen!
I believe Christmas Eve is the most magical night of the year – so full of hope, excitement, love, and good deeds. So on this Christmas Eve, I wish you the best. Thanks for being a part of the Creating Home family!
