We thought that there would be no better time to dedicate to a blog then when everything in our lives was about to change. This way, gentle reader, you are able to share in the journey.
Peter and Jim were engaged last fall while on a trip to The Breakers in Palm Beach. With the moon beaming down at Bethesda by the Sea church we committed to sharing our life. The plan is to travel to Vermont in mid-May to seal the deal.
As we decided to join our lives, we also had to find a place to join our households. Peter brings his 3 cats, Stanley, Whea and the Bean, while Jim has Frank the cat and Butters, a midsized mongrel who behaves like a drunken, clumsy college girl. We wanted room, character and a bit of earth. After a lot of driving around, found a small horse farm in a part of Minnesota so rural it does not have a post office and put in a bid.
The offer was accepted yesterday and provided everything continues forward we will be moving in the beginning of May. Of course we will maintain separate residences until we are married, I mean we were raised properly after all.
The purpose of this blog is to follow the trials and tribulations of married life, home ownership, decorating and remodeling, animal husbandry (Peter has his heart set on miniature donkeys) and gardening. If along the way Martha Stewart wants to do a photo spread and J Crew wants to outfit us, I am sure we could work things out.
The Bunbury name comes from Oscar Wilde's Importance of Being Earnest. Bunburying is about making choices on your terms and being engaged in your own life.
We think that sums things up.
Welcome to Bunbury Farm.
