When we moved to the Skagit Flats in March, we thought we would hold on to our homestead in the wilderness. So we rented it out to a great couple with kids, thinking this could be a win-win for all of us.
Then the renters suddenly inherited a house from a relative, and we would have had to find other renters. It was quite a shock, but the more Steve and I thought about it, the more we realized that we both felt in our bones that it is time to sell.
We have created an utter paradise on this homestead, poured our love, sweat, tears and blood into it, experienced a trillion memories on it. Two of our three kids were born under its roof. We grew thousands of pounds of food here. I thought they would have to drag me out of there dead.
But then things changed. Our family evolved. Our needs are different now.
So we decided to sell our Marblemount Homestead.
It might come as a shock to many of my blog reading fans, but please know that we feel completely right about this decision (except our 10 year old daughter, who misses her friends up here). Are we sad? Of course we are. I will weep a river once we don’t own it any more. But it’s the right decision for us.
