Rural Thursday.. A great new Meme I found and LOVE..

I am and have always been a country girl, deep down. So when we found nearly 4 acres of land with a garage and house in the country we jumped on it. Finally a place that I can be myself. If I want to sit on my porch in my pj’s I can. Although it has taken us 6 years to finally do some landscaping we have wanted since the beginning. It was definitely a place that you could make a change in. When we moved here the previous owner had built a partial front porch, never completing it. It was simply a platform of wood with no steps, rails, roof or anything. This year I have finally gotten most of what I have dreamt of having on it done. I love sitting out here now, and I have all the things to keep it rural and simple. Greenery, flowers, a swing. I love the fact that most of this stuff are items I purchased at yard sales or off a local trading post through Facebook. I like for my kids to be able to run around and just be kids and not have to worry about being too loud for neighbors that are too close. They are also learning about enjoying the quiet of a stream and bullfrogs on a summer night. Welcome to my haven….



  1. Aww – so glad you are able to enjoy your HOME. What a great definition of it!

  2. I’m in LOVE with your porch, and your acreage. I’ve always wanted to have a few acres surrounding me but it just hasn’t played out…yet.

  3. Your rural haven sounds wonderful — I wish we lived in the country when my kids were small. No better way to raise those kidlets!
