Now that we’ve been living in the mountains for a few months and have gotten settled, I’m starting to notice some changes. I guess it’s only natural to expect some emotional and mental shifts with such a drastic move. Since we’ve literally removed ourselves from suburban life to live in nature instead, obviously priorities change and perceptions will shift. Somebody recently commented to me that I’m reinventing my life…I guess that’s true!
Generally I spend most days at the cabin that includes a daily walk with Aries. When Andy’s in town, we’ll go into town once or twice a week on errands. That schedule suits me completely because whenever we go into town, I feel out of place and immediately want to get back to the mountains. It just feels crowded, dirty, loud, and busy. I’m getting used to my quiet, peaceful, and calm days, so anything else is a struggle.
I know a lot of people think we’re crazy and that Andy dragged me out here, but in reality, I wanted to move to the mountains as much (if not more) than him. If you know anything about the Aries personality (which we both are), they take charge and do their own thing. How else would you get two strong-willed Aries personalities living in the middle of nowhere? For whatever reason, we both feel like this is where we’re supposed to be.
People often ask me if I get lonely, and the answer is no. Because I’m an introvert, I love being on my own. There’s always so much going on inside my head with ideas, projects, and goals that I’m constantly busy designing and creating. This new life is exactly what I want–it’s fulfilling, simple, and beautiful. I know this life isn’t for everyone, and I completely understand. I’m happy to share it with you if you want to follow along.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
