Glad to be Home....

I can tell you that it feels GREAT to be home!!!  I walked a whole LOT.   Not sure how long it has been since I have walked as much as I have this past week.   

~Walking the Riverwalk is so nice and there were several times when I found myself far away from our hotel.   A one way trip down the river is not so bad, but just knowing that you have to walk back can sure make you tired.....real fast!

......No doubt about it, I am one hundred percent, a country girl.  I just couldn't possibly see myself living in or near the big cities.  I'm pretty sure that most of you who read my blog would follow my vote.....but there may be a few who do, enjoy living in a large (BUSY) city!!

~The country life offers me much peace and tranquility.....   So much to enjoy!!

How about the rest of you?  What is your preference.....for real?

Shug ~

We live in a suburb of the country, surrounded by cows, fields, and mountains. I LOVE it. I like to live in the country and go visit the city! I love your retro black and white header!!! You are the Queen of Headers!

You know what they can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl. That pretty much describes me. No matter where I may live, I'll always be a country girl at heart! I live on the edge of a small town with a little acreage in back and that suits me to a T! We have our "country" but with the convenience of being near "town". I like to visit cities, but wouldn't want to live in a big one.

Hi Cutie, I am just like you!!!! I do not ever want to live in a big city... I love having no traffic around much. I love the country life....

I will say though that there are times when I miss a bigger city nearby. We drive an hour to Knoxville (semi-big-city) to do some shopping which is not available in our small town. AND--we drive about 30-45 minutes to some of our favorite restaurants --which are not available here.

BUT--overall, I LOVE where we live... I am proud of you though for doing so much walking. That is SO good for you.

I spent my growing up years living in the country as well as the first 20 years of marriage. I love the country. I am blessed to live in a city/town that has it's roots in the country.Within,literally 2 minutes drive,I am in the country. I love it.

I live in THE COUNTRY...and I love it!
There was a time when I lived in THE CITY...and didn't know any different. Rode the bus where ever we wanted to go!
After I married-- I moved to Tyler... sort citified back then, and I've lived in the 'BURBS too.
I can say I liked living in a SMALL TOWN too... the kind of place, where I could hang my laundry out, no HOA, I could walk to the P.O. - the library, the town square, the hamburger joint on the corner (that makes me sound old, doesn't it? hamburger joint.LOL!) I could even walk to the grocery store if I wanted to... and I liked it a lot!
If I had a preference-- and could only choose one, it'd be the COUNTRY!
I know I gave you more than you asked for...
of all these places, it is hard to choose...because, well, they're ALL IN TEXAS! That's my favorite place in all the earth!

Great that you're home and relaxing now! I grew up on a farm in Ohio. Then lived in a subdivision in Louisville, and in a small town just NW of Chicago now, farms and fields around us. Country living is the best though, and I envy you! Love the wide open spaces!

The Riverwalk is a cool place. But give me the country! The older I get, the more I crave peace and a slower pace.

That's such a beautiful place to visit! We went one year at Christmas and it was amazing! I like living in a small town. Close to the things I like...but easy to drive in! Enjoy your week! Share some more photos of your trip if you can! Hugs!
