This past Friday, before my interview on KING5, Johan and I took the three younger kids (Tilly 7, Griffey 5, + Poppy 2) to Fox Hollow Farm in an effort to distract my brain from being nervous and it ended up being the best idea! (Thanks for all the support and kind words you guys! It was so much fun! Use the link above to watch the segment.)

One thing that was rattling around my head during our outing was whether or not I would enjoy living on a (mini) farm. Even though I consider myself more of a city or beach girl, hanging out with the kids on the farm, watching them chase animals and roam the property had me wondering if I would love it. Or if I just love the idea of it. Probably the latter, but OMG this place is just so dreamy. I didn’t want to leave.

Here are a few pics from our day.

. . . She found someone else who had caught one and asked for a turn holding it. Love her!

The landscaping was incredible without being fussy but I can’t imagine what it would take to design so much land let alone maintain it! Wish I could sit down with the owners (who live on the property) and ask them all the how, why, and who questions. We can barely get our tiny backyard looking put together!

As if the animals, landscape, creek, pony rides,  and mini playhouses (not pictured) were not enough they had a fleet of power wheels waiting to ride around their giant driveway loop.

Also, kids in sunnies? Yas please!

They have the best dad that makes them laugh like it’s his job. Watching them together makes me feel like the luckiest girl!

A tired Pop-Tart.

We didn’t want to leave but ended our visit with cold popsicles and lots of hand sanitizer. Still wondering if I could be a mini farm kinda girl.

So now I’m curious… If you could live anywhere would it be by the beach, in the city, on a farm, in the mountains or a combination of two?

XO, Rae

    Oh I am a beach girl at heart but I love living on a tiny bit of land with some animals and a garden. I always say my ideal home would be in a big old farmhouse on a bluff overlooking the sea. But close enough to visit the big city. :)
