I’m Callie and this is the space where I introduce myself and share about all the cool info you want to learn about me.
I live on 45 acres in rural Alabama with my husband Silvio and our children. On this blog I share about how we have transitioned from living in a subdivision outside of Atlanta, Georgia to this amazing piece of land in the quiet of Alabama.
This blog is a reflection of how “city folk” can transition into “country folk” without too much crazy in between.
The Main Man
This is Silvio, the hard working man that had this big dream to turn shipping containers into a home. He envisioned, designed, and is building his idea literally from the ground up. When he isn’t building our forever home in beautiful Alabama he loves to fly airplanes, ride dirt bikes, tinker, build, and create.
Without him, none of this would be possible. He is pretty darn cool in my book.
He works hard to make this life possible for us and I am so stinking proud of all of his diligence and labor to build our forever home.
The First Boy
This is Isaiah, our oldest son. He is one of the biggest helpers you will find when it comes to building this house of ours.
He is now moved out and living close by but he is always willing to come help with big construction things that his daddy needs help with. In the years before he moved out he learned to weld, use a plasma torch, and is quite the builder now too, thanks to his daddy.
In his spare time, this young man loves music, movies, Jesus, and has a heart for the hopeless and helpless. He is a true blessing to us as parents and we love him immensely.
This is Ana, our only daughter. She is a true blessing to us and is often the peacemaker of the family. The Lord knew she would be amazing and aptly gave her bookends brothers.
She is creative in so many areas; she paints, draws, writes stories, crafts, bakes, cooks, and is a wonderful organizer.
She has a heart for animals and would love to work with Big Cats one day in the future and loves Jesus more than anything.
This girl is gonna be one amazing wife and mama one day, I just know it. She is becoming the young lady I knew she would and is loved with a big love.
The Last Boy
This is our youngest son, Joseph. When God sent this one to us we were in for a ride. This boy reluctantly came into the world but has since taken it by storm.
He is creative, loud, funny, engineer minded, has a fiery temper, and he loves hard. He is ferociously loyal to his family and still loves his mama. He has a heart for Jesus like no other his age that I know.
He is by far the best helper we have around here, will do anything that is asked of him. And offers the best hugs to just about anyone he cares for. This boy is loved more than he understands.
