I Miss...

There are two things I really miss about our old home/location.

The first one is cows, and the country setting in general. I always felt a sense of serenity and well-being when I drove past all those pastures (other than the one time I drove past them alone, and in the dark, with disastrous outcome).

The other thing I am really missing is my daily walk. I had an established route that I walked almost daily, sometimes in the cool of the morning, sometimes in the hot sun, sometimes alone, sometimes pushing one, or two, or even three girls in a stroller. It was such a pleasant walk, up our street and into the next subdivision, where there were winding roads bordered by a cow pasture and lined with huge, mossy trees. I have only been out for a walk three times since we moved, and the monotony of city block after city block just doesn't motivate me to get out and be active.

That being said though, I love our new home. This house is just a pleasure to be in, for so many reasons. Once its a little more put together I'll share some pictures so you can see why. I am really enjoying arranging things and decorating here; this is probably due in large part to my nesting urges being suppressed for awhile since doing anything to our old home right before our move seemed pointless. I have several projects evolving at the moment. I can't wait till they are finished so I can post before and after pictures!

Growing up in both Boca Raton, FL and a suburb of Atlanta, GA, I've never lived close to cows. Until 3 years ago when we moved to our current house in SC. There are cows right down the street, but I don't admit that I live in the "country" :)

I used to live in the boondocks of East Texas. I miss the cows and rolling hills but after being here in Houston for seven years, I would miss the city if we left.
