    Country To The Roots

    I am Country to the roots. My heart is always going to be Country. I am a down-to-earth Country-hearted girl. My father was born and raised in the Country, but moved to the city for better job opportunities. I would prefer to live in the country area any day, I like the piece and...

    I love country music you have no idea.

    I always wanted to go to a club or bar that play only country music but I'm in the city. They don't play that type of music. I was born in the city but I love country music. When I tell people they say "that's a surprise I never heard a city girl who's into country...

    I'm actually the exact opposite from this!

    I live out in the middle of nowhere. I crave noise and excitement or at least people. I don't even need to live in a city I just don't want my closest neighbor to be a herd of cattle. I have nothing in common with anyone here. They are all conservative and love being outside...

    So I was in the park(there is no real forest

    here) and while walking with the kids found wild garlic growing in one nice spot. Cool, wanted to dig one plant out. They destroy it anyway. To city folks what is not perfect grass has to go. Suddenly woman came and started to shout on me, that I am destroying the park. And...

    I'm a country guy, stuck in a city world.

    Well, I live just outside of the city of Halifax. I can't wait to move to the country. More freeing and relaxing. :)
