long lost lover

Living in the country delights me.

I used to pride myself in being a city girl.  I enjoyed large crowds of people all milling about, tall buildings, seas of concrete, and falling asleep to the sound of police sirens.  I still have a place in my heart for these things but in the last year the country has won me back over like a long lost lover.


A few days ago John, Evaleigh, and I walked out in to our pasture with the guitar in tow and laid down a blanket under the persimmon tree and felt the breeze on our skin.  We fought a loosing battle with the bugs but it was good while it lasted.


Country living you have my heart and I'm so happy to share it with you.

I looove the country, but my husband is such a city guy! We live in a HUGE suburb and he calls it the country because its not downtown toronto lol.

Such sweet photos! I can totally relate to this post--we currently live in Tahoe and we're surrounded by peaceful woods and mountains, and although there is definitely very much a city girl and wishes we could live in NYC (my sister lives there and I honestly love New York), I think when I'm really honest with myself, living in the West has really transformed me as a person and I don't think I could actually live in the city...I'd miss all the beautiful fresh air and open space :)

Being that we live in the same "country" area I can relate!There's nothing like it in the world!
