Rural Thursday Blog Hop: The View From My Front Door

 There is so much to cherish about this lifestyle. 

I love the peace, I love the quiet and I love the view from our front door!


Our place is not nearly as far out as some and not nearly as close as others.  We live forty minutes from the closest 'city' and fifty minutes from the other closest 'city'.  We are fortunate enough to live right by a small town with a small grocery store, hardware store, gas station and post office.  No stoplights in the near future!  We are close enough to a public school, but the community is so close-knit, I think the school is much like the 'private' schools in my home state of Ohio.  I'm able to take my kids to and pick them up from school every day.  And, all along, we're still able to own a decent sized growing ranch.  Life is good, the view is better, and the ranching is great!
