All that being said....it feels as if I spent my whole childhood dying to see the country, the world in fact! Anyone who knows me can attest......I'm game for a road trip anytime! After getting married my husband and I moved to Northern Virginia in one of the many suburbs that are part of the DC Metro Area. Truly....I thought I had arrived! My dream house, close to the city. How could it get any better? 3800 sq. ft. on a .26 acre lot.
Long gone are the traffic jams, congestion and neighbors just 10yds away. Bring on the fresh air, starry nights and slow living! My family has blossomed in the country. I now realize that all the distractions of having everything at your fingertips are just that....a distraction! Seeing the farms and animals all around have certainly brought us closer to nature...and our FOOD! We eat local whenever we can. Truly an awesome thing.
These may not be your typical neighborhood sites....but guess what? They are MINE! Love it!
Have a good one,
