Okay, this is a meaningless, silly post, but just something that
popped into my head this morning while poking around (wasting time)
I saw a decoration that I loved and repinned because it is
so country-looking. Therefore, I added a board called
Country Decor ~ That's Me
That, of course, got me to thinking about this long-standing
conversation (argument) that my husband and I have
never settled. What, pray tell, is a country girl?
I was born and raised in the country.
In the boonies, if you will. I am talking at least 10 miles
to the nearest gallon of gas, milk, or bread.
Boonies!!! I grew up playing in the creek (but not all day because
truthfully I am more an indoor person that outdoor),
climbing trees, riding bikes, and going to a little country
That being said-- I was NOT raised on a farm. I never
said that I was a "farm girl". My dad was not a hunter
so we didn't eat wild meat. We didn't have a farm so
we didn't raise our own animals for meat. Therefore, I
never ate squirrels, rabbits, or even fresh beef.
We did however, raise a big garden, so I have
eaten country, homegrown veggies my whole life.
My husband's argument--
I've never really mucked out a barn, never ate
wild meat (until I married a deer hunter, and now
I can cook up some mean venison)
Never worked on fences, helped cut or stack
firewood, never did a lot of the things that
(in his mind) constitute what a country girl
Yes, I do prefer indoors to outdoors- but
still I can't be a city girl when I have NEVER lived
in the city.
So, I MUST be a country girl.
And of course, we never REALLY argued about
this...we have DISCUSSED it a few times.
I am just curious what someone else would
