I'm just a farm girl

Its funny I was talking with a cousin whom I haven't seen in years....
and she asked about my life and what I do everyday and when I told her she laughed and said "gosh Doll you are just a farm girl now"!
It never really hit me until then {my light bulb moment} how much my life has changed!
I was born and raised in the "BIG CITY".....a city girl through and through.

Loved the fast paced life, shopping malls, city lights, the convenince of having everything right there!

Then one day I gave into hubbys desires to live on a farm {Yep I married a farm boy}
We moved from the BIG CITY to the middle of nowhere.... {Gods country}

We have a small Cottage/farm house in the woods , with a huge old red barn.

I drive a tractor, raise chickens and have a goose for a pet!
{I'd love to get a pig soon.}

We grow and can all of our veggies, make jams and jellies,
I hang my laundry on the line to dry!

No more fancy clothes, big expensive cars, keeping up with the Jones!

We live the simple life, hubby and I are very happy and feel blessed everyday!

Happy Sunday and God Bless you!
Until next time

P.S. now you know about mine..... tell me about your life changing experience!

This sounds like a dream life to me. I'm a small town girl living in a bigger town but would like to live the country life. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs...Tracy :)

I grew up in the country, so the life you live is all I know. I've lived in the big city, but didn't last long because I really do have a laid-back point of view.

Sounds like your life is iddylic to me!

I am the opposite Dolly. I'm a country girl who ended up closer to the city. We do have a house on 5 acres so we aren't in the burbs completely, but we are surrounded by them! Your barn makes my heart just skip a beat. I want one so badlyand yours is a beauty! The next house we get has to have a barn!

Oh Dolly, you have the best life ever. I too am a big city girl, born and raised and would love a farm in the country to get away from all the stress, traffic and people. I would love to look up at night and see stars, what a gift you have been given, Char
