Happy Campers



Yesterday, we closed on the property we were in the process of purchasing when Lily unexpectedly arrived. The property will now be known as "Lily's Woods". It is 30 acres of mature woods, surrounded by an Indiana State Forest. We look forward to managing a healthy forest with the goals of quality timber production, recreation (hiking and camping), and hopefully maple syrup production (on a very small scale). Lily will have so much fun hiking in her very own woods! Maybe someday we will build a cabin and dig a pond for Lily to fish in. For now though, we are just going to make a campsite so we can spend more time there.

Awe! Lily's Woods, this made me cry.
You have your girl and your land.
What more could an earthy couple like yourselves want? I'm very happy for you three.

I just had a thought.....I recently talked to Berk about making an arbor...using your wedding arbor as our inspiration...do you guys still have that? How perfect would that be for Lily's Woods! :) Bumble is JUST starting to get into fairies and loves make believe and imagining..... Lily will have so much fun there! ooo....Lilygobs!
