For the love of country living...

For months now, I've been dreaming of SPRING!  And when I say months, I really mean it.  I usually LOVE Fall and Winter seasons, but last year was not the case.  Thanks to my morning aka all day sickness, I set my sights on the arrival of Spring and my second trimester...  

Well- both are here and this little mama is THRILLED!!

Along with Spring, came a list of projects and honey do's to get our household ready for our Sweet Pea and, of course, satisfy my need to nest.  Now I will have a few of these projects to unveil later, but one is complete!

If you read my blog regularly, you'll know that I've been daydreaming about Spring for sometime now from a few of my posts... If not, then you can click here to get the scoop.  

 In that post I had mentioned that come this Spring I really hoped to have a clothesline for a functional but more for sentimental reasons.  Well, my sweet talented husband made me some massive clothesline poles.  He brought them home from the shop so I could paint them.  Then he set them for me a few days ago, and I have been using them ever since...

I just love country living!  I think the clothes hanging on the line to dry is such a pretty sight.  And the smell of line-dried sheets and towels is wonderful.

Plus, having the clothesline the past few days has proved to be pretty beneficial.  Our household has fell victim to the dreaded stomach bug, and Judey Jude has been one very sick little redhead.  (In fact, his Papa is up right now at 1am trying to rock him back to sleep.)  So having the line to dry all the towels and blankets and clothes we've gone through the past few days has been a life saver!

You know, it's so funny to me how much I just love country living.  You see, I grew up in the middle of nowhere and hated it most of my childhood.  As soon as I could stand on my own, I moved to what I considered the city and I planned to stay there.  Then Lane and I were married and just a few short months later had a baby on the way.  Looking around our townhouse apartment and our neighborhood made us realize that we wanted to raise our family in the rural community that Lane grew up in.  Now here we are- loving our country lifestyle and blessed to be able to have it right now.

Other than the awful stomach bug, everyone has been okay.  Just enjoying this beautiful Spring weather. I'm still feeling great and have really started to relax and enjoy my pregnancy more and more.  Speaking of pregnancy, we see Maternal Fetal Medicine this week to just confirm that the baby is looking good.  But we are feeling good about the appointment.

I hope y'all are having a great Spring as well.  Hope to get some cute pictures of my adorable redhead up as soon as he is feeling better.  

Happy Sunday,


  1. The clothesline full of bibs is precious! Haha!

    I love country living too! & i have always liked city living until i was almost married. I don't know why, it just seems like a wonderful place to raise kids! :)

  2. I know exactly what you mean,Angel! I would LOVE to be back in the woods near my parents now that we have their grandkids. And there was a time that all I could think about was getting away. I have to remind myself everyday that God has a purpose for us being almost 4 hours away from family. -Donna Ellzey Fairburn

  3. So sweet, I know you have been wanting this and now you have it. I am day dreaming of all those sweet little baby clothes that will be hanging on it soon......
