Time to start...

I have been planning on starting this project for a long time. I have thought and rehearsed what I would be writing. Things change when the empty editor is staring at you from the screen, though.

So, what is this all about? What's the deal with a nerd in the country, anyhow?

Well, one of the things I will be doing is chronicling what happens when you take a computer programmer (wannabee engineer, actually), a pediatric registered nurse, and three roudy boys, and allow them to escape from Detroit and land on a nice, little ten acre parcel in the middle of Michigan.

Mayhem ensues, to be sure. Calmness happens, too. Roosters crow in the morning. The leaves rustle, and traffic noises are too far away to be an issue. If our youngest boy wants to go out and play, we don't have to worry about traffic, nosey neighbors, or strangers with bad intentions.

And you can't beat the view.

We have had many dreams put on hold, but the Good Lord has seen fit to bring this one to life. One month, we were visiting my parents' cottage and wishing we could stay longer, and the next month, we were looking for property up here. When God wants it to happen, you need to hang on, do your part, and enjoy the ride.

When Mary was growing up, she liked horses as much as any young girl. As a city girl, she never dreamed that she would some day actually be able to get one.

Dreams do come true.
