The Southern Colorado Outdoor Living and Sustainability Fair was outstanding. We caught up with some of the folks we knew in the sustainability world and met many new ones, farmers and young beginners alike.
I pep talked myself the whole way there, “I will not be sad. I will not be sad.” Seeing the homesteading and farming folks, chickens being demonstrated, chicks in troughs (Doug and I snuck over there early and gave the chicks kisses), a goat running by after being milked, I was afraid the whole scene would make me very sad. But it didn’t. In fact, it just served to fire us up again. “Anything we have talked about is back on the table,” Doug said. Do we want to move to Old Colorado City and have a funky urban farm? We can. Do we want to buy land in Elizabeth and go all out? Then we can do it. We have a year to get our act together financially and then go for it. And there we will stay!
We are so sure of this venture (put your dreams in motion and watch them start manifesting) that we struck a deal with the Expo for next year. We will return and with us will be a few farm animals. I will be promoted as the Farmgirl and will be on their seminar lists and advertising. I know my stuff about homesteading, farming, and herbs. So does Doug, and we love sharing it with the world.
