From City Lot to Country Acreage: A Pictorial Retrospective

 A tiny bungalow in Akron  

 From my teeny little city lot in Ohio... 

 blue sky views 

to expansive views that stretch for miles in Kansas. 

Next week will mark 3 years since I left my city life behind for a very rural existence in south central Kansas.  Any regrets, you ask?  My answer: None whatsoever!!  Who in the world wouldn't want to trade a postage stamp sized city lot for 27 acres of rural life?!  Three years later, I can't imagine living in the city ever again.

I traded my view of the neighbor's house to views like this...

This is so beautiful! It's exactly what I'm dreaming of doing-- moving away from tiny city apartments and get land of my own in the middle of nowhere :) Congratulations on achieving this gorgeous home!

Oz Girl, I agree with you country always wins over city in my opinion. I can always escape to relatives that live in the country but my home will forever be in the Urban city. I can make it as much of a ranch as I can but it will never compare to the wide open spaces of Kansas. You have a great eye for capturing landscape pictures. Of course I'm kind a partial to Nebraska. It's where I was born and raised and it will be where I die with my boots on. Well, I hope so anyway. I'm glad that you have found where you need to be in this season of life. Enjoy it to it's fullest. I hope and pray that you have many years of life to enjoy the sunsets, sunrises, winter wonderlands, and the view of the wide open prairie. Have a great Kansas summer day.
