Country At Heart

I admit, I usually think of myself as an educated, cultured, metropolitan woman. (Living in 3 major cities and in Europe has helped contribute to that.) But the reality is, I was raised on a cattle farm on the edge of the Ozark Mountains.

Here is my Dad's barn!
Now most people wouldn't be able to gauge it from my interaction with them, but it's true.. I'm still a little country at heart.

Not too long ago I came across the song "A Little More Country Than That" by Easton Corbin and it automatically took my back to my small-town roots. Listening to the words and seeing the video quickly took me back to my life in southern America. While I don't know that I am cut out for rural farm life anymore, I still appreciate the values, culture, and traditions that emanate from those who still get up at dawn to feed cattle, bushhog the fields, and cut ice on those frigid winter mornings.
Here is to all of you who are just a little country, even if only in your heart!
