If anyone had ever told me twenty years ago that I would someday live in the country as a modern day homesteader, I never would have believed them. Born and raised in the city, I thought myself a city girl through and through.
However, after one year of living in a small rural town, I have to say that this is where I belong, and I believe this little slice of land had my name on it long before we discovered it was here.
But the transition from city living to rural living is not an easy one; and, in spite of what one might read in books, magazines, or see on reality tv, country living is tough.
Idyllic, yes, well, most of the time; but there is a lot of dirt, and whoever describes it as quiet has not been around cattle or roosters; or known how the sound of a country~western~music~at~full~blast loving neighbor can carry.
A few weeks ago I sat down and wondered what things I wish I had known before our move: things that might have made that transition a little easier.
