Dream a Little Dream For Me
In honor of Earth Day- I'm going to share a personal dream of the Dirtiest Family in the World.
We hope to someday buy some land near Austin and set up an organic farm. Maybe build a straw bale house with some solar panels and raise more than 3 chickens. I am a social worker by trade and passion and would continue with that work while my husband farmed the land with our favorite little helper. (She already weeds nut grass- its in her genes.) We could live simply, treading lightly on the earth and enjoy the company of our favorite people.
Now if this is a dream that will be realized in 2 years, 5 years or 15 years- I don't know yet. But dream a little Earth Day dream with me.
And we will be calling on you for a good old fashioned barn raising. We know how to throw a hoedown.
