    Farm Girl

    I feel very, very farm-girl-esque today. I don’t know what it is about this outfit, but something about it just makes me think of… a farm. Interesting fact about me (maybe, or maybe it’s a boring fact): I grew up on a farm. We didn’t have a lot of animals– just chickens, dogs, cats, and brothers– but it was a farm nonetheless. We had a garden (I remember corn and tomatoes, mostly), a little orchard full of apples, and bears that would sleep in the grass in our front yard. This neighborhood is the closest thing I’ve gotten to city living. And it further cements my desire to live in…

    Springy Flowers

    We have the most beautiful Dogwood tree in front of our house, and it’s pink! (my background happens to be a picture of its flowers). I don’t ever want it to stop blooming. (^That one is my current background.^) Isn’t it gorgeous? I know. I got a little carried away with taking pictures of it. But… but… pink! Flowers! And that day was really sunny, too. Also, we have a lavender bush/tree that I forgot to take pictures of. It’s not blooming any more. Here’s the only photo of it I have (from my phone.) AND… we have tulips. I love spring. Mara
