BEST THINGS ABOUT LIVING IN THE COUNTRY

  1. If you want to sit on your deck naked eating chips, no one is there to make you feel weird.
  2. You can shoot targets off your kitchen balcony; if you need more beer, it's just 6 steps away.
  3. You're too far out for family to swing by unannounced.
  4. You have a resident owl and woodpecker whom you have named.
  5. You feel less compelled to go out all the time; it's beautiful and peaceful at home.
    (Or am I just getting old and boring?)
  6. Your pyro husband doesn't piss off any neighbors when he builds a sky-high bonfire in the yard.
  7. It's cheaper in the country, so you double your square footage moving from the city.
    I actually have a craft room. It's pretty much been a dream of mine.
  8. You use your canoe every weekend, cause the river is literally RIGHT THERE.
  9. It's easier to like people when you're not on top of them constantly.
    I fixate less on the necessity of a population reset since moving to the country.
