Two Years

I've meant to update as we go along, but I missed our two year anniversary of living in this home a couple weeks ago. Better late than never.

Many of you have been with us on this journey, remembering when we bought this farmhouse/farm and when we celebrated a year. Long story short, it's an 1880s Southern Coastal Maine area estate that has been in the family for decades.  We're the new owners. We're bringing it back to working order, one day at a time.

It's been two years now. The projects have slowed down a bit and we've been settling into living in this amazing home. 

Some of the pictures are the same from last year's update and some are what we've updated in the last year.  We invite you to come on in and enjoy our homestead and see some of what we've been up to in the last year.

This picture is the one that was listed on the MLS system. Not my picture, but a picture I remember fondly, as I was dreaming of making this place ours.

Here it is through the seasons...
Through winter,





And fall.

And now through the rooms.


His room.

Her room.
 Guest room:




 Three season porch.

 In the summer


 Craft area.

Our bedroom.

Random things that make us happy:

Wood heat.

Getting this root cellar back in working order (which this picture is before it was's filled now..oh my!)
Filling this woodshed.
The barn.
New barn door.

Land cleared (thanks goats).

New (to us) swingset.
 Lots of wood.


Fresh picked.

Roadside stands.
Home cooked.





Baby chicks.

 Faithful pup.


And our great mouser and non mousers.

And of course, our two littles who are learning, growing and thriving.

 And brief escapes to places we love (thankful to live in a coastal town.)

Our little family of four making a homestead out of this old home/farm/land. From winter to summer and back to winter again.

 Thankful for this homestead here.

And the life we share living here.

 And thanks to you who have followed along, offering support, suggestions and provided inspiration. Blogging isn't my job, it's my hobby and it's fun to share with you. Don't forget, I'm on facebook too,
Two successful years on this farm, cannot wait to see what year 3 brings us. So many ideas in the works, we shall see what another year brings us.
