Howdy Everyone! Hope yall are having a Blessed evening. I've been tuning in on your site since I stumbled across this site around July. We live in mainstream suburbia in the Hampton Roads area of VA. My DH is getting ready to retire from 23 years in the USN, 13 of those spent in this area. It's been my lifelong wish, hope, and dream to have a house and a bit of land out in the middle of nowhere with whatever critters we wish to have. Well, that wish became reality in September and we bought a house on 6+ acres in Central Texas. We are ready as soon as our house in VA sells to flee suburbia and live a more simple life for the sake of our and our children's sanity. I have been so impressed with the wealth of knowledge and sense of community with this forum. I look forward to the time when I actually have a real question to ask or maybe someday a bit of knowledge to share, but in the meantime I will enjoy all the knowledge and companionship yall spread around!
