A little girl running on a country road with the words "land tour." Click to visit post.

I’ve been wanting to take you all on a tour of our land for quite awhile now. You can read all about how it came to be ours in my post The Story of Our Land. I think the pictures in that post give a good idea of what the land is all about. And I hope my writing paints a vivid word picture. I do tend to get kind of poetic when waxing on things I’m passionate about.

But if a picture is worth a thousand words (and as a writer, I’m not sure I always buy that line), then how many pictures is a video worth? I suppose it depends on the content and the quality of the video.

But I think this one captures the true – and largely untamed – beauty of our land.

I hope you enjoy watching my land tour video as much as I enjoyed making it!

    I just couldn’t love you any more. This was truly a joy to watch! Watching it, I felt like…I wish I was there with you so I could ask a million questions and comment a ridiculous amount on how gorgeous it is and how adorable your kids are.

      Awww thanks 🙂 You’re welcome to come for a real life tour anytime you want! Except at 2am on a Wednesday. Because, you know, sleep.
