Where I currently live is perfect.Tiny rural community.
Yesterday my husband and I were up in Portland shopping for a much needed new fridge, and I was ready to go insane within about an hour of being in the city.The traffic and the people everywhere,all the lights and noise and everything made me want to hide somewhere.
I do not care that every time I go to town it means I must drive..it is worth the sacrifice just to have the sense of calm within myself I have here.
I am glad my son has two acres to play on, and run on, and get dirty on.I am glad I can have animals( rabbits,chickens,pygmy goats,dogs,cats,and my FIL belgian draft horse) and a garden, and an orchard, and a barn. I am glad I live in an old farmhouse with only one bathroom ..and that I live surrounded by my husbands family.
I am SO HAPPY here!!!!!!!
I want everyone to know that I am not judging those who live in Portland, and I know there is some neat stuff up there..but I have always loved living in the country..and I have lived in citys and suburbs and in the boonies...and out of all the styles of places i have lived..the one I am in suits me the best.
