I truly love where we live. I love country life. I love our community. I love our huge group of amazing friends.
I love that the boys can walk to the end of the driveway and catch the school bus and that if they don't make the bus there is someone always looking out for them and wondering where they are.
Recently some family members visited our farm for the first time. We took them on the standard farm tour then in to our little town of Maitland (population 1056) to show them the main street and the boy's school.
As we were driving around the town exclaiming there's such and such, giving them a wave running in to 30 or so people who we knew I saw our life through another persons eyes.
We may not have designer shops but if we need to we can jump in the car and be in Adelaide in just over an hour and a half.
We may not have gourmet restaurants, but by golly there are some amazing cooks in the district and I have been to some wonderful dinner parties over the years.
Yesterday we took the kids to a bonfire with great friends. They all ran around, climbed hay bales, rode their bikes, toasted marshmallows and breathed in the fresh air. That's what country life is about and why I love it so much!
