Living In The Country :)
Mood:  special

Life in the country...  What is there not to love?.

We went from the hustle and bustle of the big city. To a little, lazy, river town way of life. The country. There are so many things that we love about living in the country. Peace and quiet is one of many.

What is not to love waking up seeing so many deer, among their little ones who pay us a visit through out the day. Most people go to Tennessee in hopes of watching the deer during the fall and winter season. Not where we live in Indiana. We always have deer to enjoy watching, feeding and even lately doing a few communication commands. Head nodding which means that deer are trying to figure out if you are a friend or a foe. A few stomps on the ground means that the alpha deer is letting the other deer know if they should stay or run. We have one particular female deer that we named, 'Dots.' She is a regular visitor at our home. At least 2-3 times a day you will find her enjoying some deer chow, bird seed, popcorn and never-ending water supply. Heeheeheehee!

It has been a first over the past few weeks with momma deer and her twin babies coming to visit us. There are not enough words to describe these cuties! I absolutely love all wildlife! Never did we imagine having so many outdoor animals, both big and small, to include as part of our every day life.

Why of course... Only in the country.

Here are a few other reasons why we instantly fell in love with life in the country. Our little, lazy, river town that we now call...Home.

Nursing homes are pretty much non-existent. Family means just that! Family. That also means family sticking together through the good times and the bad. There are no words to describe the smiles on our faces seeing so many families here in our little town enjoying the little things in life. Together, as family. Picnics by the river, biking the trails, grocery store shopping and even bringing the entire family along with their fur children to our local dog parks. Oil change also means time spending together, all together as family. Family life, isn't that how God intended it to be?

Maybe not so much back in the big city. A place in our past. Where the past it will always remain to be.

Cowboy hats, straw hats are no longer something to just enjoy at a country concert. In the country, they are normal attire and no one is quick to judge. Feeling free to just be...ME!

No more huge water bills. Not when you live in a small community here in the country. Living within your means does not equal excess.

Folks here are beyond handy when it comes to doing your own home and car repairs. Need help? Everyone knows someone that can get er' fixed on up!

Sunday is a day of rest. Not a day of work when family and God come together living in a little, lazy, river town. A place where we instantly felt that we belonged...
