We Left That Change Somewhere Behind

A week from today I'll be back there, and I can't really explain to you how exciting and terrifying that is.

I feel like a lot of times you guys only see half of me - the girly, clothes loving, hipster-like girl.

There's more to me than that.

I love shooting my dad's handgun and can't wait to own my own.

Country music will always hold a dear place in my heart.

I prefer flannels and boot cut jeans on guys more than any other outfit.

I love old cars and want to learn about them.

I'll be using Mason jars long after the hipsters have moved on.

I'm not a city girl, and I don't want to be pegged as one again.

I don't want other people's ideas of me to define who I am anymore.




  1. I could never be a city girl! Big open fields all the way! :D

  2. I am glad you get to go back. I hope it is nothing but enjoyable.

  3. meep! Loving this post! AND don't forget I love you no matter what or which side of you shows more (the girly, fluffy hipster or the shooting, country gal) <3

  4. Nothing wrong with being a city girl either!

  5. I think it's neat that bloggers get to show all these aspects - I'm a city girl myself, and the idea of me owning a gun is frightening (simply because I am clumsy and shouldn't. I'd be like that New Girl episode where she keeps pointing the rifle at people or something awful)but anyhow part of the reason I read other blogs is to see other people's lives and opinions -there are you and a few other bloggers who I love reading because it doesn't take places in a big city.

  6. I'm a country girl at heart, too!


  7. Sometimes it's scary to show both sides of who you are, but I think it always make your readers appreciate you more for being true to yourself.

  8. Fun post. I like this blog... sweet background.

    How do you feel like people's ideas of you define who you are? You can be anyone... despite what others think!

    I'm a country girl, literally, but a city girl at heart. I thrive in the city, and the country is really uninspiring to me. Not enough culture, I think?

    I think guns are very scary, but I do love men in boot cut and flannel. glad to have discovered your blog. It's only my first visit, but can't wait to read more!

  9. Mason Jars have been cool forever and will always be.
    Very lovely scenery!

  10. love this <3 beautiful pictures and i love what you've written :)
