Almost Country

By Colleen Newquist

Colleen Newquist chronicles her attempts to live a “country” life from her almost-country location in Park Forest, on the southern edge of Chicago’s suburbs. When she’s not at her day job in the city, she laughs a lot and watches too much TV with her artist husband, Michael Weiss, and their son, Aaron (when he’s not living the college life). When she feels moved to do so, she also writes and illustrates Stop and Smell the Butter: A Journal of Appreciative Living. You can find the most recent issue at magcloud.com.
