A Farm Girl

I've grown up in the country and all my life I have always felt that I am a true "farm girl". I've spent time living in other cities and have spent enough time there to know that I am a country girl through and through.

Don't get me wrong, I love lots of the things that the cities have to offer. I LOVE shopping (I'm quite and addict actually! lol), I love great food, good wine, I love to dance at cool clubs, I love the beach and I love the accessibility of ANYTHING and everything in the city! I also love my cute BF that was born and bred in the big city!! hehe

But there's just something about the country that keeps bringing me back. Maybe its the open spaces, the animals, the people and the places? Most probably because it's always been "Home".
During the New Year break from work, a friend helped me bring my horse back in from the paddocks of a large and very grassy property outside of town to my parents home in town. I hadn't realised how much I missed working with her and having her waiting to see me every afternoon.

Last night I spent some quality time with my Dad and my girl "Splash". I managed to snap some piccies and these remind me of just why I love being a Farm girl! You can't do this type of stuff everyday in the City!!

Gotta love the perks of living in the country. There might not be many, but we make the most of it out here!! x
