Last weekend, we decided to make the trek down to Holmes County to see what may have changed and to enjoy the Amish surroundings and simplicity. Here are a few pictures from our journey:

When we go to Amish country, I am revived and want to build our homestead to be as self sufficient as possible. I enjoy driving around Amish country and seeing the solar panels on the roof, the farm animals, people working and tending the fields and setting up produce stands at the side of the road. I kick myself for not keeping up with my garden and reaping it's harvest as the Amish and our ancestors have done so long ago. Next year I will attempt the garden and harvesting again and will hopefully be motivated enough to keep up with it.
We are striving for a more simple, self-sufficient life: we have alot to learn from these wonderful people.
