When I started my blog "Greetings From the Shady Grove" I had visions of writing post cards with views of my rural life and travels to the big and small cities. I am blessed to live a life where I want to live it. This is truly home for me and my husband. If you ever picture yourself living this lifestyle, find a way to support yourself and make the leap. You will not regret it. We don't, in fact this life is hundreds of times better than we had hoped and I think we had pretty high expectations.
I will tell you that we took 5 years to choose a place to live based on many factors like school system, cost of living and friendliness of the local citizens. My employer allowed me do research and home searches at lunchtime on the internet during our slow seasons. (I still work for this company as a remote employee.) We searched in many states and settled on our current location 3 years prior to making our purchase. We visited this county one weekend a month for a year before we finally move here full time.
As you know I am a seller on Etsy. I never really saw this blog as a place to promote my products and lately it has started to become that way. When I decided to sell my hand dyed fabrics in a new shop called Dye Candy so many other ideas came along with it. I just launched a new blog called Dye Candy.blogspot.com
Stop by and see what I have planned. Please leave comments and let me know what you think of the ideas.
Wishing you warm days ahead from our Shady Grove,
