Sharing thoughts in our quest to regain some of the peace and tranquility we knew as children growing up in rural America in a time gone by. I hope you find this narrative both comforting and inspiring. I hope it brings back memories and helps you move closer to your dreams. This is one aspect of my life that has never faltered, never strayed from home. This is a dream come true.

Various wildlife we've encountered on the property
We hadn't hardly gotten the structure up when the birds started nesting! :)
Tufted Tit Mouse
Red Bellied Woodpecker
Our window tint allows us to stand within inches of the birds as they feed without them seeing us
Box Turtle that we dug up while clearing spot for house
Walking Stick that decided to help with drywall one day
Not sure what these were from but they were pretty large
Blue Tailed Skink
Lizard that was hanging out on window ledge one morning
Cottonmouth Moccasin floating in the creek by the bridge when we went on a walk. I carry a gun now when I head out.
Rat snake that was hanging out by the generator one day
Large snake skeleton we found on the back of the property
Green racer that came through camp
Brown Recluse right before I killed her and her 200 babies!
Racer hiding out in the crack of a stump
Baby toad blending in to the leaves. 1000s of them in Spring of 2015 because of the flooding.
Family of Raccoons eating by the front porch one night.
Yes, the squirrels eat half of the bird seed we put out. Not a bad price for this much cute!
Anxiously awaiting his breakfast outside the front window. "Give me a minute and I'll get my shoes on!" :)
Raccoon family feeding at midnight outside front door
Blue Garter Snake hanging out by the storage building
White Throated Sparrow that hit a window and needed to rest for a bit
Carolina Chickadee that came inside and got confused. He bit really hard considering his head's only about as big as the end of my pinky!! LOL
