Joined 3 years ago from California




Girl meets Boy, Girl falls in love with Boy, Girl marries Boy, and they live happily every after...

But it's never quite that simple! City Girl-who's never lived farther than 2 minutes from a grocery store, walmart, target, and 20 restaurants-meets Country Boy. City Girl falls head over heels in love with Country Boy, they get married, and they are now learning the delicate balance between City Couple and Country Couple.

We spend our weekends canning, cultivating plants, and picking blackberries... but it's nice to be able to run the 2 minutes to walmart for jars, fertilizer, pectin, bug spray, sugar, bigger pots, and first aid kits! After multiple batches of runny jam, then syrupy jam, then burnt jam, I'm finally getting the hang of that. And we have more "baby" plants than I can currently count. Follow along on our adventures, learn tips on canning, gardening, and organizing, and also check out some parenting ideas as City Girl turned Country Girl is also a nanny for 3 adorable kiddos!

Oh, and we do it all from our two-bedroom apartment! Want to grow tomatoes, eggplant, strawberries, herbs, and garlic on an apartment patio? We are!
