I am homesick...
Don't get me wrong, I love my life! I love my family, friends, work and my adorable boyfriend!
But I am a country girl at heart.
I long for a completely organic existence of tending to my giant garden outside my sunny kitchen, feeding a horse or two and snapping pictures of the beautiful expanse of nature around me.
Heck, throw in a couple mountains just to shake it up.
Every few months I get a deep breath of air when I walk outside that turns on an alert in my head. It says things like: "Let's go on an adventure! Let's travel! Forget your plans for today and just drive around a lake and have a picnic!"
And with the lack of winter weather around these days I have been dreaming back to simpler days. When every day I was able to experience a level of freedom I can't get anywhere else in the world. I swung my leg up over a horse and everything seemed more romanticized and beautiful.
I close my eyes and I imagine myself in this scene: powerful and graceful.
I am so homesick for this feeling of freedom and grace. It's the base desire in my nature to travel. Anywhere, any mode and any time.
I love the convenience of living in a city but give me a chance to move out to a beautiful little farm and I would pack up a suitcase and leave in an hour.
Raising a family on a farm is not only beneficial as a "working farm" but also teaches so many things that I know helped me as a young adolescent. Work ethic, responsibility and ingenuity. Working with ones hands is some of the most rewarding feelings in the world.
So, as I sigh wishfully all I have to say is, someday. Someday this will happen!
Hope with me as I live my life with a secret desire to curl up in a little country home with my family. And don't forget a fireplace!
I bid you adieu!
