Fabulous! And where do the fowl think they are going in those pictures?

Yes, very beautiful. I'm excited for you. What are you going to do with all that space? It'd be kind of strange going from a small cabin to a full-sized house. I'm sure you'll have lots of stories to tell. Woohoo!

Do you have an extra room, can I come live with you? I'm quiet. I could help you take care of the animals. I'm so jealous. Did you walk through the door with Jazz? You must be so psyched!! Peace.

You've found yourself a gorgeous little corner of the world to manage. Wish I could hang out with the chickens for an afternoon.

Hug the puppers for me and snuggle the doe, she's gorgeous!

Congratulations!
Nothing like seeing your animals grazing and happy to make the reality set in that it is HOME.

Hope you figure out how to get your shed transported.
Watch out for the hen-eating foxes out there. They are fast and have babies to feed, so they are highly motivated.

I'm so jealous. You've got quite a beautiful corner of heaven right there at your feet. Congratulations to you.

A quick question. Now that you're in New York, how far are you from your job and your old stomping grounds? I hope you're not starting completely over again.

Jackson is exactly 19 miles from the office, takes me about 25 minutes to get to work, ten longer than Sandgate. Same great job!

Looks like heaven! Thanks for sharing your journey with us and helping to inspire so many.

Life on your own farm is hard work, as you well know, but there is nothing more satisfying. Wishing you great success!

Beautiful! (To tell the truth I'm a teeny bit jealous!)

Love the view of the mountains especially. Are they Vermont or the Adirondacks?

One thing I've wondered, since you're in web design, isn't there a way you could work from home a few days a week? Probably not, or you'd be doing it already.

Anyhoo, it's gorgeous Jenna.

So you got the truck and you got the house, and you got the dog- now all you need are the rest of the sheep and the man, and they will come as well.

Aren't you so totally pleased with yourself? I would be...

A little white farm house with shutters, is there anything that tugs on those heart strings harder? I'd almost be jealous except that I know how hard you've worked to get there. Hard work will be me to my own home some day, too.

Oh, Jenna. Those pictures are like you stole them from my head. There wouldn't happen to be any openings for accountants in that neck of the woods, would there? 'Course convincing my very southern spouse that New York really isn't that bad could be a challenge.

this reminds me of my granny's house. what you have converted into a chicken house is probably a brooder house. I remember sitting in my granny's brooder house with a coal fire going and about 200-300little yellow chicks running all around me.

Totally Sweet! So by looking at the pictures I am surmising that the house faces North, correct? I'll bet it is quiet there too, except for the normal farm type animal noises.I live two doors over from an Interstate...sigh.

This just brought a huge smile to my face. You've only had the keys for what, three days? And it already looks like your home.

An aside: I ADORE a white house with black shutters. You just don't see that very much in the central south. That would have been a selling point for me right away. Well that, and that bad ass chicken coop. ;)
