When TJ and I were looking to buy a house we had MAJOR discussions about where we wanted to buy. TJ would have been completely happy buying the land that attached to my parents and building a house there. Uh... no. I would have been completely happy buying a house on a main street in the middle of town, any town, but NOT the country. We came to some sort of agreement about where we would live and God gave us a house that fit both of our descriptions. We have a little bit of land in an addition. I feel like we live in town, although when a friend came over recently she told me otherwise. "You know, Amanda" she said. "This IS the country. You don't exactly live close to anything." And she's right. I don't live close to anything. But this.
This is one of my favorite sights. When we drive home down the highway and I see a field like this I ALWAYS smile. It makes me happy, like I can take a DEEP breath of air right in that spot. I know its not for everyone. Heck, it wasn't even for me a few years ago. But now I love it. It's where I live.
(Just FYI- I did not take this picture. I googled it. Because my iPhone camera taking a picture while TJ zooms down the highway at 70mph just didn't do it justice.)
