Cha - cha - cha - changes.....

Well, it's been way too long since I have posted......and do I have some major changes to share with you regarding Spring Lake Farm. Here is the bare bones break down:

July - Resigned from my job, effective 8/31/10.

August - Trip to the TN, NC and VA mountains to look for potential farms to lease. Found one on the Tennessee/North Carolina state line. Lease application submitted and approved.

September 15th - Moved Spring Lake Farm to the mountains of Tennessee!

We are located about 15 minutes northwest of Boone, NC in a small community named Trade, TN. Lots more details to come but here are some photos of our new home....

Old farm house....

Old tobacco barn (current home of goats and chickens)....

Corn crib with stables in the background (current home of chickens)...

Photos of the land...

Needless to say, we love it here! Lots of details to fill in and many more pictures to share. I have missed by blogger friends and am looking forward to catching up with everyone soon.

For now, from the hills of simply and smile!



  1. Wow Beautiful place!! Cant wait to hear and see more details!

  2. Congratulations!!! My, what a change!

    Every one of your photos would sell me on a home there, especially that sweet, big ol' porch!

    Wishing you many happy times in your new home :)

    It's so good to see you back online!

    May all of your dreams come true...congratulations!

  5. What a wonderful house and the land is beautiful!

    I love forward to hearing tales of your new place. Congratulations!

  6. Congratulations on your new home/farm.

    Also looking forward of the adventures on your new farm.

  7. oh, I have missed you, I knew something was up. Glad you are back, and your new home looks and sounds dreamy. I always joke that as soon as my daughter leaves for college I will ditch my job and we will move the farm to a mountain in NC or TN. Honestly, you are living my dream.
    I can't wait for more details, and I hate that we didn't get to meet while you were still in GA. I have been in Athens several times a month for the last 2 months for my job...anyway, can't wait to hear more and see more pics.

  8. What an absolutely gorgeous place. Yes, we have all missed you and were wondering what you were up to. Congratulations on your new life!!
