Head over heels

The reason I've disappeared off the face of the earth this past week is because I've fallen in love. Total and complete, hopeless and divine love. Love at first sight. Butterflies in your stomach love. A let's runaway together and never look back kind of love.

I am beside myself with insane, unbelievable love for a barn. Have you ever met someone so spectacular that when you first talk to them you're internally hyperventilating, thinking "Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, I'm falling in love at this very moment"? That's what it was like meeting this barn.

Maybe when I can properly form sentences, I'll tell you about how I found myself sitting alone in a hay loft with a cup of coffee, falling in love with a dairy barn yesterday morning. At present, I'm too over the moon to do the place justice.

  1. I totally grew up around and in barns. Hung my feet out of a loft with a boy once. Very exciting. Sometimes you don't appreciate things until you see it through someone elses eyes.

    Thanks for making me see it.

  2. Barns are wonderful places. Earthy, full of animals, their food, and the people who care for them. I wish you a long relationship!

  5. I know what you mean and seeing only these images of yours, I can understand why. To to pit off, it was great that you were able to sit by yourself with a cup of coffee.

    Places like this have a charm and beauty that just drenches us with the barns essence and we just love.

    I look forward to learn more about your adventure.

  19. I'm with you.

    I can smell sweet hay from here.
    I can see the filtered light dancing.
    The taste of coffee soothing...
    Feel of scratchy hay bales under me.
    Hear gentle cows munching.

    A sacred sensory experience.
    I'm in love, right along with you!

  30. I think if I found such a lovely barn I would fall madly in love with it as well! It looks like a nice peaceful place where u can just lye down and think to yourself. And the sun shining threw the cracks looks quite amazing! Makes me wish there was such a barn here!!
