My husband and I are country bumpkins.
We love living out in the middle of nowhere.
It is so peaceful and quiet. Both of us grew up in large cities, but neither of us have very good memories of inner city life. One of the first things that we talked about while dating was our dreams to live way out in the country. I love the farmhouse look, so after we were married, we immediately started looking into buying an old farmhouse. After a few months of looking, we found one that we fell in love with. It needed a lot of work done to it, but we were excited about renovating it. It took us about five years to get it looking the way that we wanted it to, but it was honestly a really fun project. We have lived in the farmhouse for about ten years now, and I would not move even if someone offered us a million dollars for our house. My husband feels the same way. We had trouble with our furnace last winter, and my husband was worried that it would not last another winter, so we decided to install a wood stove in our house. I had never been more excited about getting something installed as I was about getting our wood stove installed. I just love the smell of a wood stove. It fills the house with the most calming and homey aroma. He finished installing the wood stove just two days ago, and I am already completely in love with it. It is definitely worth all of the work involved in using it.
