We live kitty-corner to a dairy farm, I’m a hop, skip and a jump away from a corn field at all times, I have to drive at last 45 minutes to the nearest Target and the nearest Starbucks, and if you’re driving on the back roads, almost every person in every car will wave at you.
I never thought I’d be a country girl. Never.
I used to roll my eyes when my mom would tell me how much she’d love to live in the country as we drove the back country roads in northern Minnesota at my Great Grandma’s house. Who in their right mind would want to live in the middle of nowhere?
Now I must be completely out of my mind, because I love this country lifestyle.
Will I own a farm anytime soon? Yeah, probably not. But we are planning on moving even further out into the country in the very near future. There’s just something about the quiet, small town feel that I just love. And that’s a huge change for me.
I’ve always been a city girl, growing up just outside of North Minneapolis. I always thought I’d be a pro at all of the freeways and interstates and I’d never have a problem finding my way around the big city. And now when we venture back to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, I make Cory drive because I’m far too scared of all those speedy, mean city drivers!
It’s funny how things change as we get older, isn’t it?
Are you a big-city kind of a person or are you more of a small-town lover?
