back on the farm.....

I just love that saying! It makes me day dream about this happy family on a beautiful ranch, living the simple but hard {does that even make since} life. They drink coffee on their big wrap-around porch while rocking in their rocking chairs overlooking beautiful country side, they work hard during the day, and relax and play as a family at night.

Someone needs to pinch me, because if I stay dreaming about this too long, Tim is going to come home with a For Sale sign in our city yard and on our city business, and be greeted with a sweet little "hello honey, how was your day and oh, btw, we are moving to the country!"

Don't think this conversation hasn't come up a few times {and not always brought up by yours truly}..

I am not a country girl really. But you would be surprised at how many trees I have climb, horses I've rode, eggs I've gathered and stars I have gazed up at on a dark clear night....

There is just something about being in the country and on a farm, listening to the coyotes crickets at night that just  plain feels good and quite home-y. I know I am not the only one that thinks this way, or people around here wouldn't go to the mid west or just up east to the mountains for a vacation if it weren't a little true......
