about me

I’m a recovering city girl with a rural dream. I’m here to document the lifestyle and the recipes that go along with that Field of daisiesdream.

Himself and I are in the progress of packing in the city life, moving to the sometimes frozen wilds of Northern Minnesota. On any given day, you’ll find me with my nose in a recipe book and his searching for ways to improve agriculture techniques.

A perfect match, he’s the dreamer and I the realist, and somehow we meet in the middle. Lucky enough to find someone who shared the same dream, we’re moving ourselves and our cats to the country.

Follow along, there’s sure to be some adventures along the way.

    I enjoy the country life as well… Moved our young family from Chicago to rural Indiana years ago. Life is good! All the best to you!
