We're Selling our Beloved Farmhouse

Some big changes are coming to the
Stoltzfus Home!

We've made an offer on a new home and it's been accepted!  

 We "happened" upon a property that's been for sale for some time, not too far from here, and we felt it was a great fit for our family.  Located on one acre overlooking a large stream, it's twice the square footage of our farmhouse with a place for Jake's Mom to live as well.  It once was a small cottage, but has since been added onto several times.  It's darling and has "great bones", but needs some love and attention to become what we dream it to be, (just as this place did).  

I'll share more about it, (and our journey to it) another day, but for today I wanted to let you know our news.

We'll be having an Open House here tomorrow, 
Sunday, March 2nd from 1-3pm

We have loved her well and it's very, very hard to let go, but we know that without change there is not growth. 
And hard things are brave things.  
And sometimes things that look crazy and foolish
 turn out to be amazing and faith-building.  
Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.

That is great excitement and sadness all at once! The letting go of something you have poured so much of yourself into is not easy... I feel emotionally attached to the houses that I have put so much time into making beautiful and making HOME. But, more space, a stream, and an acre of land? That sounds so perfect for your family too, and I know you will make it beautiful and make it home, just as you have done in every house you have lived. I look forward to hearing more about it! xo
