Never Leaving

We spent half the day yesterday taking Calvin to see his doctor. Now that we only do this monthly, I cannot fathom doing it weekly, as we did last Summer. We took a bag full of cucumbers and zucchini to share with Dr. G and the nurses and I felt like a character in Little House on the Prairie, paying for Doc Baker's services with fresh garden produce.

This is the road we traveled to get back home.

I looked behind me, at the dust we had just kicked up, and I decided, once and for all, that I'm never leaving.

A few hours later, returning from yet another doctor's appointment, I passed this by, and it sealed the deal.


  1. I'm SO glad you are never leaving...'cause I don't think I'm ever leaving either...maybe as R and I retire we can move out to the Country and be closer!

  2. Just beeYOOtiful! I wouldn't leave, either. I live in a similar area and just love it. My family lives very near Amish, too and I just love seeing them out doing their farming!
    PS: I just found your blog and I LOVE IT!

  3. I wouldn't leave either!! My husband, who is very anal about car cleanliness, would probably freak out, though!! Hahaha!!

  4. I love where you live too! Don't change a thing.

  5. I was out in Shipshewana on Monday and I thought of you as we drove by Goshen. I guess it was laundry day in Shipshewana. What a beautiful sight, clotheslines blowing, men out working the fields with their horses. I live semi rural, but I wish I were on a gravel road. SO homey.

  6. You really make me wanna live in the country!!!

  7. So beautiful. We're in Bloomington,Il. visiting my husband for 6 wks. while he's working here. We're from Fla. and Shipshewana is on our list of things we'd like to do.

  8. Looks like you live in a beautiful part of the country!
