Cypress Bayou Farm.

Cypress Bayou Farm

We finally landed our very own piece of paradise on 7 acres – Cypress Bayou Farm, a farm house made out of cypress on Indian Bayou. A perfect name for our perfect place. What’s even more exciting? This bayou gypsy officially has her own bayou! When I started this blog, I didn’t know I would call myself the bayou gypsy and I didn’t know that I would one day live on a bayou but watching God’s plan for my life unfold is truly incredible.

Now you know what I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. All the stress, countless emails, late nights, packing, unpacking, money, time and energy was worth it when I finally enjoyed morning coffee on this fantastic back porch. The quiet of the early morning has always been my favorite time of the day. My early morning routine of Bible readings and devotions are just a little different these days. I have company now…

Morning Visitors

Abby James discovered the cows on our first morning and stood guard for quite awhile, barking off and on. After much effort on our part, Abby finally called it quits and gradually adjusted to the new neighbors.

We have lots of things to do around here in preparation for farm animals in the near future. The barn and fencing will need to be upgraded so that the farm can operate properly. It may take some time but it will be a glorious journey. Watching Andrew piddle around the farm makes my heart smile. He seems right at home.

I’m digging the cowboy boots and shorts look these days.

Welcome! I am the bayou gypsy, born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Although I have spread my wings in the great cities of Austin, Seattle and Delray Beach, the bayou state kept calling me back home in 2007. Thank goodness for the pull back home because that is where I met and married my husband, Andrew. We relocated to 7 acres in Zachary, LA and have started life on a farm. It's the land of bayous, fishing, hunting, four wheelers, trucks, nutria, deer, cows, three rescue pups named Abby James, Dixie and Gypsy, two rescue horses named Sparkle and Freedom, 20 chickens, 2 turkeys named Leroy & Luann and everything else southern. I have started this personal blog to chronicle our new found farm life, the battles and blessings of our ongoing infertility, our recent adoption and the exciting adventures this bayou gypsy and her cowboy get into on the regular. I dabble in a little bit of everything and will share it all with you one wild ride at a time. Come wander with me...y'all!
