There is something about the country that is so divine - the tranquility, the quiet, the wildlife. But I just don't think I could move so far away from the hustle and bustle of the city...not yet anyway. This is my family's farm in Western Washington where, with two in tow, we have become frequent visitors. I am torn between my love of the city where I can walk to nearly everything I need and still feed off the youthful energy vs the solitude and naturalness of the country. Plus, my kids adore running around in acres and acres of free space, playing with the animals and picking fresh fruit. Luckily, I can shuttle between the two for now whenever I need a break.
