My name is Meghan, and I’m here to share the details

of our newly built farmhouse with you all!

 

I’ll also be giving you an inside look to other projects going on in our lives, such as converting my great-grandparent’s home into a school house, building a cabin retreat, and everyday life as a SAHM. Thanks for stopping by!

THE HOMESTEAD

This piece of land has been in my family for over 100 years. It all started way back with my great-great grandfather, Domingo Pacetti (don’t ya just love the name?). We’re officially a Century Pioneer cattle farm. My grandfather is still the chief cowboy, but I’m hoping one of his great-grandsons will decide to follow in his footsteps. I knew I wanted to plant my roots here when the time came to start a family, and I’m lucky enough to have found a man who could make my dreams come true! We’ve built our forever home on the family farm, and now we’re just enjoying all things country ;)

THE NC CABIN

So, if you haven’t already caught on, I love my family. We are very close knit and spend lots of time together. Aside from all living on the farm, we also have two small cabins in North Carolina that were built way back in the 60s. We vacation there any chance we get! Now that I have two littles and my sister has two littles, these small cabins have started to feel claustrophobic. There is enough land on the lots to add one more tiny cabin, and that’s just what my husband and I intend to do! It won’t be large, but it will serve its purpose. I look forward to filling it with all the comforts a cozy, rustic cabin should offer!

SAHM LIFE

The Daily grind

As passionate as I am about all things farmhouse, this is where my heart truly lies. Being a SAHM is difficult. You’d think not going to “work” every week would be a life of luxury, but that ain’t the case! With a toddler and a baby, I’m always working! There have definitely been days I’ve found myself in a complete identity crisis (cue Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for the 100th time, baby crying, toys everywhere). BUT I wouldn’t have it any other way. Being there as a role model for my littles, instilling in them good morals, faith, and values, nurturing their growing hearts.. that’s the most important job I’ll ever have.

THE SCHOOL HOUSE

Our perfect setup for Homeschooling

Prior to starting a family, I taught in an elementary school for 4 years. My sister was a 1st grade teacher for 7 years. My mother taught elementary aged students for.. well, a long time!! We were the kids who actually got excited for “back to school”. Can’t you still remember the thrill of picking out a new backpack?! No? That’s just me? As much as all of us enjoyed our time in the classroom, being home with our kiddos is priority. Hence, the idea of homeschooling. We get to spend time with our children, nurture them, AND do what we’re passionate about. And how fitting is it that we’ll have our very own “farm school” to teach them in? This mama/teacher heart is just bursting at the thought!
