You may wonder why I named my blog “Back in the Bush”…….
Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to live in the middle of at least five acres, surrounded by woods, no close neighbors, with a creek running through the property.
In 2012, I reconnected with a man I’ve known since middle school. He had just purchased my dream property. It’s all of those things I always wanted – except the creek crosses over our property in TWO different places! It’s more than I ever dreamed of. Long story short, we fell in love, got married, and now live out here in our little piece of paradise.
I feel so blessed to share this beautiful home with the love of my life.
We live about three miles down a dirt road. It takes ten minutes to get from our home to the highway. The property is very wooded and swampy, and our five acres is surrounded by woods. It’s full of vegetation and wildlife: deer, wild boars, turkeys, rabbits, etc…..
We also have three dogs, three house cats, several strays we feed, and in 2015 we got six baby chicks who are growing quickly. We hope they’ll soon produce nice fresh eggs!
I have planted many of my favorite flowers and plants. I have started building a rock garden. I have a firepit with fairy lights hanging in the trees and pretty little decorations….I just love it.
So, we live out in the woods, and our last name is Bush…thus the name, Back in the Bush.
I hope you enjoy your little “visits” Back in the Bush!
