I have lived in the country for a better part of my whole life.  My fingernails have been caked with dirt, I have worn holes in the knees of my jeans, I have tired and failed at so many DIY projects I have lost count, a tube of lipstick has lasted for years, and still my favorite spot at the end of the day is anywhere I can watch the sunset.

I have so many things that I love about being a country girl that this little blog post couldn’t begin to name them all.  But, here are my top 8 things that make my heart skip a beat and proves to me everyday that I LOVE living and BEING a country girl!

wild flowersFresh picked wild flowers are better then a dozen roses any day!
