Blog Challenge

Here's this week's challenge:
You have to move. You have two choices:

1. A farm house in the middle of the field. Your closest neighbors/grocery/etc are miles away.
2. A big city apartment in a high rise. Yep, you still have your kids.
Which is it and why?

This is a tough one. There are parts of me that could go either way: cozy and secluded on the farm ... active and in the middle of the action in the big city. Plus, more convenient to get to things.
BUT: Since we have family, I'm going to have to go with the farm. The boys would love being able to play baseball and not worry about dogs getting the balls they hit over the fence. We'd always have fresh air. And stars ... I love the stars in places where there are no city lights. Yep, I'm thinking barefoot on the front porch swing watching the sun go down and the stars come out. Man, that makes me crave summer!!

Love the farm. :)

But, if we were just two (and no kids in the future) an apartment within walking distance to the Plaza would be my top pick.
