City Girl or Country Girl....I can't decide...

Can I be both? I love being in the city, but I also love being in the country. This past weekend I went to Vermont again. Yes, I am becoming quite the traveler these days.... I went out and took pictures again. Each time I go there, I find someplace new, or something new that I like and I have to stop. This time I saw this wall with the opening and the water running through...It was just so beautiful!
So, I made my way from the road down to the stream and hopped from rock to rock taking pictures. Thank god for waterproof boots! I love water....it reminds me of when I was a kid and me and my little sister would always play in the streams whenever we could find them.
If my boots had been higher I would have walked underneath this bridge to the other side! But the water was freezing and I had no desire to get wet.
Of course, whenever I take pictures, I always look for some locals. I am a big fan of these locals. Horses have such a pull for me. It made me want to pack up and move to the country so I could have a horse again. Don't you wish you could live anywhere you wanted but be able to make a decent living? I do....
And one of my favorite things is to see the maple trees with the sap buckets in them. On every roads you will see lots of these buckets hanging from the trees.

And from these trees comes some of the best maple syrup ever! Love it. But now I am back to the city...where convenience is the thing...it's all about the quickest way, the cheapest deal....and I think as I get older....that is becoming less important....I kinda like the slower pace these days....I guess when you define a "decent living" it is all about perspective....

Absolutely LOVE Vermont. Love the slow pace and the unspoiled land. My husband and I visited 10 years ago and he still looks at property for sale ads.

Your photos are so peaceful.

btw - how do you add your own 'wallpaper' to the outside edges of your blog?

I have always been a country girl, though I now live in "town" -- not so much the city - both have their appeal. Beautiful pictures. I love the Northeast for its beauty.

These pictures are so pretty. I'm one of those must have both. My inlaws live in the sticks but in the DC area so I love it!
Thanks for coming to visit & your words about my bracelet. I'm so excited for A&S. I can't wait to see you :)
