IN MY MIND...

6.13.2013



...i am a farm girl.

i would live in my white farmhouse with the bright red door framed with a screen that would squeak every time you entered. window boxes would accessorize the front, filled with cascading vines, fragrant herbs, and clusters of blooms. there are rolling hills out back and the front is graced with a circular driveway filled with gravel and lined with tall stately trees providing the perfect shade. and of course, there's the dog who runs out to greet everyone who stops by for a visit.  during the day i would play in the dirt, weed, and nurture the greens. take care of the goats (yes in my mind i have a few) and there may be other critters sprawled about too.  at night, i'd sit on my old clapboard porch and rock the night away with nothing to keep me company except the tree frogs and fireflies.

in my mind, i am a farm girl, cultivating and preserving the land while sharing canned preserves, herbs, and whatever i grew from the earth.  there would be large potluck dinners, complete with a game of horse shoes, sweet churned ice cream, and the smell of honeysuckle lingering in the breeze ....

in my mind, this would be perfection!  hard work, but worth it.
in my mind, i am a farm girl complete with a wheel barrow and garden hoe. dirt stained jeans and floppy hats would be my fashion. cultivating a beautiful land would be my style.

in my mind, i am a farm girl...

  2. such a pretty post and the image is so relaxing. i'd love to be able to be outside more and garden. and a few goats sound great as well. i don't know how i'd handle actually living on a farm, but it sounds peaceful.

  7. It would be wonderful. Just away and in your own little world. I'd love a big house in the outskirts of town with my garden and big house filled with antiques. Close enough for anything I need, but far away enough to have peace. I hope you get your farm :))) x

  8. There is definitely a huge appeal to being away from it all, the quiet, fresh air and space for your pup to frolic! I am definitely more of a suburban girl myself :)

  10. Read this post yesterday and then thought of you today as I drove through rural outskirts and passed a big twostory red farm house with white shutters, and pickets, and rose bushes-oh my. :) You would have swooned!

    Happy weekend my dear!
