Weed of Dreams

Have you ever had a dream? One that began it's whispy imaginings as a fuzzy seedling breaking it's hard protective outer shell. Like a small weed, it struggles to gain purchase of the soil pushing its searching life root through the rock and gravel seeking just the right spot of black life bearing dirt. As it grows you wonder if the little plant will be crushed in one single step or wither and turn to dust by a long, lingering drought. You want so very much to see this little weed continue to grow. Because you know with out doubt one day, if it can survive the freezing cold and the blistering heat, it will become a thing of pure and unbridled joy. So you work hard cultivating and caring for this little weed. And then one day with out warning it sprouts something spectacular, something quite curious, something that lets you know the hard work is starting to pay off.... A single bud.

As that bud grows larger so does your dream. Soon you will know if your little Weed of Dreams has been worth the wait.

Our bud is standing tall and proud on it's stem. We are about to fulfill our dream. We have located 7 acres far out in the country. It has woods for him and grassy hills for me as well as a pond for both of us! Please keep your fingers crossed for us as we take a huge step towards our dream.
