You guys, I'm a country girl!! This weekend I was in Sandy, OR helping my friend house sit (it's a big job...) Even just being out in the country for one evening reminded me of how peaceful it is and how necessary it is. Don't get me wrong, I love the city! I love getting happy hour and walking around 23rd. I love wearing high heels and pencil skirts a LOT, but I think my soul is most satisfied when I can look out and see hills, mountains and fields. To breath the fresh air, unaware of where my phone is, a puppy to play catch with and a beer in my hand. I love Rodeos, my cowboy boots, country dancing and front porches. Does that qualify me as country? What do people do when they are caught in-between? Perhaps they live in West Linn? Close enough to the big city but still in countryside. Maybe and I'm just dreaming here but maybe I could have a place in the country to get away to but have a house in the city. Maybe a cute loft in Portland and a cabin at the mountain?
Who knows! But these are the internal conflicts I deal with on a somewhat regular basis. How do you choose?!
Do you guys struggle with this too? How do you decide to live one place?
Love and the Struggle is REAL
