The Country


One of things I love most about living in the country is the winding roads that lead to unexpected finds. My Mother and I happened upon this charming barn by exiting off the interstate and taking an old state highway from Chicago to my parents home. This farm was so cheerful, we evened spied a lazy heifer hanging her head out of another barn's window on the farm. It must be a busy place part of the year for all of those paths to be worn into the grass.

  2. I love old red barns. This one actually looks like the barn at my grandparents house but about 50 years better shape.

  6. Hi Kristy. I love your style! I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by Lizzie Jane Baby and for following along with me. I also appreciate your comments and thoughts. I didn't know if you were aware, but you are a "no-reply" commenter. I tried to email you back a couple times and wasn't able to. But I'm glad to say that I am following along with you too! Thanks for the photo inspiration!

    1. Thanks for making the extra effort. I find it's more fun to share comments on our blogs, than by email. As business owner I have to prioritize my inbox. Your blog is so cute!
