Breaking for Big Red is the blog of Toni Juliano Roth. It is essentially a journal about transition–the tale of the Roth Family as we leave our home in the suburbs in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, hitch up our Conestoga, and break west for a farm in the great state of Nebraska. It’s a personal account; the journey of our move; and a chronicle of our decisions, our preparations, our travels, our landing, and our new life.

  1. Toni,

    Madge Heyen told me about your blog. I am Elwood Yoder’s granddaughter, Randy is my father.

    What a big move you have ahead of you. I’m not sure what the area you’re from is like but Nebraska is certainly a calm, peaceful, slower way of life. I’m living in a north Dallas suburb now, have been here for almost 10 years. It reminds me of Lincoln in many ways.

    Now that my husband and I have our own two children, I understand for the first time why a slower lifestyle is so desirable. I also understand why it’s so important to be surrounded by family. We don’t have family by us and we miss our parents and siblings everyday.

    Because of that, I started my blog almost 3 years ago. I love blogging and I love reading other blogs. Thank you so much for writing about your journey. I look forward to reading your posts in the future. You are a beautiful writer!

  2. Pleased to meet you, Hillary, and thanks so much for your kind words! I understand completely how having children alters your perspective on what home looks like.
    I read part of your blog today as well! I’m so looking forward to getting to know you better!

  3. You should write a follow up post to this original set of iPhone musings. I mean, I saw you in action with your iPhone on the farm!! I do believe you get enough bars!! 🙂
