For me, Kansas is the country.
I grew up in Chicago. You know... big city, bright lights; the hustle and bustle...
Kansas is placid. Quiescent. Calm.
Still, we live close to a large city in Kansas. Our humble abode sits on a residential street. We have the conveniences of shops and services very close by. It's not exactly country living...
Recently, we visited a friend who actually lives in the country. Down a gravel road. Outside of city limits. They have a barn and pigs and chickens.
What a fabulous place!
My girls l-o-v-e-d wandering about the land, exploring new nooks and crannies... it was so great!
Now, I have a little secret for you.
Shh... don't tell anyone!
Someday, I think I'd like to live out in the country.
I'd like to have land and a barn and some animals to tend to.
We could pull it off... don't you think?
I ♥ wheat. I ♥ sorghum. I ♥ sunflowers.
I am astonished that I am able to say this!
I think I have a crush on Kansas.
