After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

Yes, Grace. We do live in the country, but . . .

My little earth-conscious child. I love her. And for some reason she has it in her head that since we live in the country, we have the option of not using electricity, because apparently using electricity is bad now.

This weekend she asked, "Mom, when are we going to start using just candles for light, build a fire, and wash our clothes in a bucket and dry them on a clothes line?"

My dear, sweet Grace. I know you have the best intentions, but going off the grid might just make my head explode.

And that would be messy.

That's hilarious! Maybe you should let her take a bath in a metal washtub and make her warm up her own water. I think that will squelch those country thoughts away. ;)
