Hello. My name is Jacquie and I live in paradise.

We moved up to our new home on Friday. This was the drive as we entered paradise (aka - the ranch in Nevada). Pretty, right?

And this, my friends, is what I get to look at every time I look out my front window. It’s even prettier when it’s sunny but I couldn’t get a good picture with the sun out. This picture really doesn’t do it justice. It’s so serene!

Let me give you a snapshot of what things are like up here:

-there is no tv, internet, or phone (well, we do have a satellite phone but it only works when the stars align perfectly)

-we are about 20 min away from the next ranch with real people living at it

-we are about 1 hr away from the closest town

-we are surrounded by cows, horses, mountains and each other. {Can it get any better?}

-ryan is feeding the cattle daily and doing other projects for his dad

-I make sure he gets 3 meals/day and hang out with our precious baby girl

-Ryan is done with work for the day anywhere from 12pm – 5pm depending on what he has to do then it’s just the 3 of us to do whatever we want.

-we feel very blessed!

Now for the part I know you’ve all been waiting for…I will be re-entering the world of consistent blogging and documenting our simple life here up at the ranch (and catching up on all of the other things I’ve been slacking on posting). Since we don’t have internet, I will post all of my blog entries from the week on Sunday or Monday when we are in town for church and groceries.

 

And for the other part you’ve been waiting for…a picture of our beautiful Harper.

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear you are loving it. I think you need a new windshield on that truck. hahaha Harper looks like she has grown already and it has only been 5 days. Enjoy your back to nature life.

That's pretty much how we lived in Wyoming, at first I hated it but now I find myself missing it. And she is SOO cute.
