One of my dreams, and one that I hope will come true in the near future, is to move to the country. I’ve lived in a college town for most of my life, and I love my hometown, but my heart has always been drawn to the wide-open spaces beyond the city limits. For now, when I feel the need to sit on a big front porch and look out to the horizon, I visit the nearby Historic Prophetstown Farmstead, which is a working 1920s-era farm complete with a large farmhouse built from plans for a Sears catalog home.
For now I'll be content where I am. But one of these days, my farm girl dreams will come true! And I plan to share the journey with you.
