Home.



i live in a small city in pennsylvania.  i'm about thirty minutes from lancaster county, an hour from philadelphia, and my home is literally on a small mountain right above reading.  i recently was asked if pennsylvania is all farmland and amish country or if that was just a misconception.

my answer?  yes and no.  the landscape in pa is diverse...like i said, i live on a mountain.  my parents built our home on five acres of woods, and within minutes, we can drive into city, suburbs, or farmland.  one of the suburbs of reading is oley, which consists mostly of rolling hills and farms.  here's a peek at that particular area!



what does home look like for you?

  6. Ahhhh, I love the country. I really really do. I like the convenience I get with living in the city but my heart is having a home and land...I have even went so far as to say I want a farm..not sure I know what all that means...BUT...yea... love the country.

  7. I love this post! Your pictures are gorgeous. My home is quite similar to yours, just not that green! I live on 2 acres in a rural area in Texas. All of the houses in my neighborhood are on an acre or more. Town is about 10 minutes away and there are farms & ranches all around us. Have a great day!

  9. Ahhh! I love all your photos! So beautiful! I miss being out in the country. I grew up in Missouri, which is lovely. But right now how is LA. It's not my favorite but there are some great things here.

  11. Oh I just love farm life. My great-gramma lived in lancaster when she was alive and we used to LOVE to visit her. We'd drive all around the country and just enjoy the peace and quiet! :) These pictures are beautiful!

  14. Oh my goodness this is gorgeous! Wow.....I live in a very small town in Southern Missouri. It is a farming community! I love how in the summer, its corn and beans. Fall is cotton and it is beautiful here. Looks like snow for miles and miles!
