Dreams at Twin Butts Vista Drive


A few years ago, after many years of dreaming, my husband and I bought 80 acres of land southwest of Laramie, Wyoming. It is on high glacial till prairie with 360-degree views of mountains, and it shares a 20-acre lake with the neighboring 80-acre parcel. But the best part of it all, in our opinion, was the wonderful misspelling on the road sign for the road that borders our parcel on the east - Twin Butts Vista Drive - we figured it was meant to be. We plan to build our dream home on good ol' Twin Butts Vista Drive in a few years, and I'll work from a home with tons and tons of windows that look out onto the Snowies, the Colorado Rockies, Sheep Mountain, Jelm Mountain...heaven! Here's a sampling of pictures of our dream:









We wander about on our land every now and again, just to remind ourselves it's real. We've seen antelope, coyote, rabbits, ducks and geese on the lake. We just know we're gonna love it there (wind, harsh winters, and all)!

Like my tagline says, Be true to yourself...be true to your dreams...be true...

LOL! Of course, Matt! Once we acually build the house and have a guest room available, that is. ;)
