HI! WE'RE THE PAPPAS FAMILY. LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT OUR PIPEDREAM. IT ALL BEGAN WITH A SONG WE LOVE BY JOHN PRINE. HE SINGS "BLOW UP YOUR TV, THROW AWAY THE PAPER, MOVE TO THE COUNTRY, BUILD YOU A HOME."
WE BEGAN TO SEARCH FOR A SIMPLER LIFE. WE WANTED TO SPEND MORE TIME OUTSIDE, MORE TIME TOGETHER, MORE TIME BUILDING, CREATING, AND LIVING OFF THE LAND. WE WANTED TO HAVE A FAMILY.
I guess the irony of having a pipedream is that it's a little lofty and out of reach. we latched on to the idea that even though we had these impossible ambitions, we could still achieve them.
IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FOCUSED YOU ARE ON YOUR DREAMS, LIFE WILL THROW YOU CURVEBALLS. YOU CAN PLAN ALL YOU WANT, BUT SOMETIMES GOD HAS A DIFFERENT VISION FOR YOUR LIFE. OUR PIPEDREAM HAS EVOLVED FROM SEEKING TO ACHIEVE A SPECIFIC VISION TO TAKING WHAT COMES AND MAKING THE BEST LIFE OUT OF WHAT WE'RE GIVEN.
