I love the show Fixer Upper on HGTV. I don’t have a lot of time to watch TV, but it is among the few shows I watch regularly. I am constantly amazed at the transformations they make to the houses and the vision that it takes to see what something can become.
I love both Joanna and Chip. I love the way they love each other and their family. I love the way they work and play around with each other. I love their story.
My parents renovated a few houses in the past; and I always loved to be part of the remodeling process. I would be a flipper if I had the time and money. I don’t have the vision that Joanna has, but I certainly wish I did! There really is something about taking a house that is old and worn and making it new and fresh again.
One of the funny things about life is how one day you might want to live in the city surrounded by all that hustle and bustle. The very next day the dream of a simple life on acres and acres of land can become your heart’s desire. More and more I find that I want to live on acres and acres of land. I want to have a little farm like Chip and Joanna Gaines. They make it look so appealing. I know the reality is that it is a lot of work, probably WAY more work than I really want or need. So for now, I will plant my mini garden. I will continue to try my hardest to get my sweet husband to let me get some guinea fowl and some chickens. I’ll keep trying to decorate our house and make it truly a home. I will watch Fixer Upper and keep on dreaming.
