It's Nature, Nurture, Grow's 6 Month Anniversary!

Wow! It has already been six months since we started the blog (it technically would have been on April 15th... but the garden has been distracting me lately). I thought that since I missed the "First Friday Update" this month (it was here and gone before I realized it... where does the time go?), I thought we should take a moment to look back at what has happened in the last six months:


On the blog

First of all, a big thanks to all of our readers. We have been growing slowly and steadily and it has been really great to connect with everyone. I can't wait to get to know you all better and all the virtual friends out there that I know we will meet soon.

We now have nearly 70 blog posts, over 300 subscribers or followers on our various platforms, and we are having a blast!

At the Ecovillage:


Things are getting busy here as the warm spring weather rolls in. The walls of our apartment are currently lined with grow lights. We are planting the first crops in our individual garden plots, and the communal group gardens are in full swing! It is getting harder to find time to fit everything in. If I am not working, I am trying to fit in as much garden time as possible (not to mention all the half-marathon training runs). That means that we are eating dinner after 8 pm these days and the blog is being written late at night (when we find time at all...).

 

With the dream:

We continue to work towards the dream. It is crazy to think that in the last 6 months we have almost saved as much as we originally put into that first emergency fund (which took so long to save for). It is satisfying to fill in the goal thermometer that I keep in the kitchen a little bit more each month. I am excited, and also a little nervous to think that we will be seriously looking for land to buy this time next year! It is going to go by fast.

  1. You're doing great! Having goals and dreams that you share and work towards together is the best way to ensure you succeed. It is amazing how much you can accomplish just by setting your mind to it and trying. Visual reinforcement is also a great way to keep motivated. :)
