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.

Ready for winter

Since the first part of July the husband as been working to amass enough firewood to get us through the winter.  This means long days in the forest and getting up at 4:30 am to chop wood for a while before he goes to work. 

He also has been cruising Craigslist looking for a furnace.  Not that he's lazy, but flipping a switch is so much easier than gathering firewood.

So far, this is what he's accumulated:

I'm rather impressed by the pile, as are the girls.  He's rather proud of it, actually.  And all that time he's spent gathering it I believe that he's had plenty of time to think about a furnace.  This week he announced that if he sold it all, he would probably have enough money to buy and install a furnace.

So, you may be looking at our furnace fund.  We'll see.
