I'm a little bit country...


I grew up about 40 miles south of the St. Louis area. I come from a very small town but it never seemed that way growing up. Looking back I can tell that I kinda lived in the middle of no where. I could see houses from my yard but we had a lot of trees and privacy. Where I lived you had hills and creeks to cross and if you forgot something at the store...oh well, better luck next time. We even lived next to the kind of neighbors where we freely borrowed sugar and eggs from each other. I miss the simplicity of those days.

I am the baby of five children. I am a big dreamer and I love to think of new things to do and I love to share them. Being the baby of a family doesn't necessarily make you a dreamer but I had a lot of people who made decisions for me and I spent a lot of time being silly and care free. I am grateful for that time of silliness because life does get harder.

I have some dreams I just keep to myself, or share in secret because I know nothing will mostly likely come of them. I just pull those dreams out when I need a good smile or some inspiration. One of those dreams is living in the complete country. I dream of owning a farm and having a lot of land. I dream of wearing my cow girl boots and selling my crops at the end of road. I think farmers are extremely hard working and cool. So on days like today, I like to visit my dreams and think about what life would be like....I am sure you have dreams like that too. :)
