why I love living here

I took these on the way home from a meeting a couple weeks ago. I pulled off on the side of the road and threw myself into [sparse] traffic to make intense eye contact with this sweet little cowbaby. I love that I get to see this on a drive, instead of staring at cookie-cutter houses and endless perfectly-manicured lawns.

  1. I couldn't agree more! Once a month I take a business trip south of Minneapolis! I love getting on the road and out into the "country"! Every season is gorgeous and I never know what I'm going to encounter!
    Enjoy the day!

  2. i love driving through the country here, too. I was born in the country and hope to live there again one day..when i dont need to commute to the city for work!
