A little over a year ago I married God's match for me - I'm sure there was some laughter when He put us together. A country boy, from small town America, would marry a city girl.
Let's rewind a bit.
I grew up in a suburban neighborhood in central Oklahoma. To anyone from this state, I am considered a city girl. Not city to say, New York standards, but city nonetheless. There was a yard, neighborhood kids, large public schools, traffic, you name it. I didn't have to go further than a mile from my house for anything I could possibly need.
Fast forward to today.
I live in a ranch style farmhouse on the outskirts of a small town just east of "the city". We have 5 acres, deer that frequent our back yard, we can't see our closest neighbors, and traffic.. only when a school bus or a tractor holds up the main road into town. Oh - and I have to travel 30 minutes to the closest anything.
Welcome to the country!
