When Johny and I were considering living this log cabin life, I came across a quote by Mark Twain--“twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones that you did.” It had a significant impact on our deciding to come here over two years ago.
I'm excited to share that once again, I've made a decision to "advance confidently in the direction of my dreams," (part of a favorite quote by Thoreau) and have accepted an awesome position with a non-profit organization on the west coast of Florida.
When we moved here, we committed to a year of log cabin living. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to keep living this simpler life until I found the right employment opportunity. Well, this one found me, and as things continued to unfold, I knew it was perfect in so many ways.
We've made this decision together, and it does mean change for us. The current plan is that he'll stay at the cabin with
Pogo and Fluffy, keeping the garden going and bringing me fresh produce
care packages when he comes to visit. I'll find a small place to live (have found a cute little villa for the transition) and come up to the cabin for long weekends and vacations.
I've one more week before I leave the cabin. I'm sure I'll shed some tears as I drive away, and I've no doubt I'll miss my log cabin life. But I'd regret not taking this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.
writing my blog, though I probably won't post every day--I'm sure I'll have
plenty to tell about my adventure and I'll also share cabin happenings. The life I'll be leading may not be my log cabin life, but it's still Lise's life, after all.
The photo is a trillium, the first I've seen in our woods. I thought it appropriate, as this post is a first too. Thank you for your support over these past two years, you have made blogging a real joy!
Thanks for reading my blog, see you tomorrow,
