Many of you have asked me just how I went from Cultured California Chick to Manure Mucking Missouri Farmgirl. And while I haven't been able to personally answer all of your questions, I can now offer you a glimpse of what things were like when I first moved to the country. Before there was Farmgirl Fare, there were Writings From Windridge.
People of all ages have an ongoing romantic fascination with country living. Maybe you're one of those people who sits in traffic and daydreams of someday trading gridlock for greener pastures. Or perhaps your feet are firmly planted in the city (and you wouldn't know a heifer from a haybale--or care to meet either one), but you enjoy reading about other peoples' crazy adventures from the safety of the nearest Starbuck's. Or possibly you're a fellow ruralite who could use a good laugh or two--at somebody else's expense (and ignorance) for a change.
If so, I invite you to step back in time with me as I dive head first into country life--without even checking to see if there is water in the pond. Just click here to read more. As always, I look forward to your feedback.
P.S. I'll be putting up more essays and excerpts periodically and will post a little announcement here on Farmgirl Fare each time a new one is up.
