I am totally and completely a country girl at heart! I may live in a neighborhood in the suburbs now, but I dream of living in an old farmhouse on several acres of land. I grew up in the middle of nowhere, with grandparents who ran a dairy farm. There were cows, horses, and, when I was younger, an old collie named Laddie. I loved spending time there, climbing in the haylofts, riding on the tractors, feeding the cows and horses, and walking through the fields.
Most of my family still lives in the small town I grew up in. My grandmother has since sold the farm to my uncle, who ran it as a dairy farm for a number of years, before selling the cows several years ago, as being a dairy farmer in NY isn't profitable anymore. Both my grandmother and my uncle still live on the property, so I still get to visit my old stomping grounds. And no matter how long I live in the city, that tiny town will always be home!
