our place.

Last week, my family and I closed up shop in one suburb, and moved to another. We left the hemmed in feel of our old place, and opened our eyes to endless sweeping plains, a next-door dam, and a trio of horses at our back fence. 

Our place felt very much like home the first night. Despite the unpacked boxes and endless clutter, this place seems to have an overwhelming sense of peace to it. Maybe it is because of the beautiful view, the way the willow trees swish softly in the wind, or perhaps it is because of how the sun mellows into a deep red hue in the evening and dances in the shadows, I don't know, but something about this place gives you a feeling of contentment that you want to savor. 

Two mornings ago, the weather was only just warm enough for me to enjoy my hot porridge outside. I tip-toed outside in my pjs and sat myself down on a rock over-looking the dam. Storm, the chestnut stock horse came to join me. I tickled his ears and he nuzzled my hand in search of sugar. Can life get any better then this? I mean, wow! 

Life has changed, but hey! I am learning to embrace change. All seems perfect. We are in our own place, we live with three horses in our paddock and a bright future living country lifestyle awaits us.
