Home Is Where The Heart Is

A saying that means your true home is with the person or in the place that you love most. So true. 

I’ve been pretty busy lately, with little time to do a photo shoot or blog, and here’s why…


For Sale:  Country home on 27 acres

I purchased my home (showcased in the above photos) about seven years ago.  A charming farmette near Ithaca. I fell in love with it from the moment I first walked in and knew I had found my forever home.  I love the views, the privacy, the character!   This is also where I staked my claim as an independent person.  It was a result of my work, effort, and passion, and it was mine.  I truly never saw myself leaving… but God and love had other plans.  Fast-forward to present day and here I am in the midst of preparing and creating my new “forever home” on Bear Vale Farm.  Home is where the heart is, and my heart is with Cody.  

There is something very sentimental about purchasing your childhood home.  Cody closed on this farm in December 2012 and we moved here the first week in April [with the help of many family and friends to whom we are so grateful].  I am still working to get through boxes and find a home for everything.  We have our hands full here, that is for sure.  There’s a lot of work, but there’s loads of potential!  Our plans are to produce grass finished beef and organic cash crops.  Little by little, day by day, we’ll enhance and remodel our new home.  The very best part is that we get to do it together.  [Another bonus is the nearly 120 acres of potential photo locations!]

You can have a house or you can have a home.  A home is where you have your family…the ones you love… it is where memories are made and cherished.  I have many memories from and will always cherish my first home.  Now I look forward to the new memories, and moments I will cherish all my life.  I’ve already collected several in the short time we have been here.  I swear, Cody and I are two of the most lucky and blessed people on this great Earth.  

“All this, and heaven too!”
