Howdy! 

Welcome to The Old Barn.  We are so glad you’re here! Simple pleasures, appreciating the small things, God’s blessings, the real things…this is why. Life in the city was beginning to feel like it was spinning out of control like a hurricane. We knew we needed to make a change, find our calm center in the eye of the storm. We know we can’t stop the hurricane, but we can provide/be a safe place to land when things get rough.
“When your roots are deep, you don’t need to fear the wind.”
Right now we are building our home.  I’m designing this house for connecting and slowing down. I want this house to be a place that makes our family and everyone who enters feel comfortable, relaxed, and enjoy spending time together, planting those deep roots. I’m hoping to get a fresh start and fill our lives with the good stuff, leave some old habits behind, and find new hobbies and rituals. Rituals like Scrabble Sundays on the screened porch, long lingering dinners, nature walks by the lake, healing heartaches on the porch swing, doing homework and making our Christmas cookies around the kitchen island, coffee or tea on the front porch watching the kids play on the swing hanging from the tree out front. My family is the reason for pretty much everything I do.
