What I Love

Do you ever have a longing in your heart to be somewhere else other than where you are at? I live in the city, but my heart. . . my heart wants the country. There is just something peaceful about stepping out on your porch in the early morning hours watching the sun come up. Country living to me signifies a more simpler lifestyle, one that doesn't require every technical gadget, or keeping up with the Jones'.

Here are a few things I love about the country. Maybe one of these days, I will get there.

I love a beautiful little farmhouse with a front porch just for me. Simple, yet elegant. The ultimate kind of home. Not fancy brick work, or elaborate wood, but just a simple small farm to enjoy the pleasures of life on.

A kitchen to call my own, complete with gingham curtains, apple motif, and my Kitchenaid mixer--all would be right with the world in this one room--and the view is stunning! (by the way, I really like this kitchen Stephen--hint, hint)!

A living room meant to be lived in--snuggling on the couch with a good book, watching a movie together while eating popcorn, laying on the floor playing board games--all of those to me are things that I love!
A pond of our own to stock with our favorite fish--complete with picnic table of course!
Riding four wheelers across our land. Yes--we love all those things! That is why I say one day--hopefully--we will be here. And these photos will be us. But for the time being, I can only dream and pray for God to bless our family with something like this.
What about you? What do you love? Where does your heart long to be?
