Introducing the Ranchette

We have been in our new home for about two months now, and an introduction to the space is long overdue. Ryan and I have taken to calling our 3.3 acres a “ranchette,” and we have lots of plans for future gardens, paths, arbors, native prairie grass, a fountain, a pond, maybe even a gazebo.

For now, we are enjoying what is already here and working to get our basement finished so my mom can have her own living space.

Here is a little tour of the grounds. Please consider coming out for a retreat day!
