Sometimes the best scenic site is your own home.


Photo taken just a few minutes ago.
When I moved to my home in West Virginia my mother sent me a quote in a nice little frame that she had cut out of a magazine that I keep in my kitchen. It says, "Nothing equals the feeling I get when I pull in the driveway and know this beautiful place is mine!" That still holds true for me today. I chose to live far from work and commute by train each day because when I come home at night and wake up on the weekends I am exactly where I want to be. Last night I found a stick bug on my window and that wouldn't have happened in DC. So for me I made the right choice and that is what it is all about isn't it.

What a lovely home and property. Great photo. My hubby and I did the same thing we moved out to a rural area with a watershed and reservoir. We are happy to commute to work and are very happy when its time to come home.

You have a lovely location. I used to ride the train daily from Frederick into DC, but without such a nice place to come home to, so eventually I moved in closer. But I do know what your willingness to do that says about how you love this spot.

You do have a lovely property! I too love living in the "boonies."

I too live far from work (or did until I quit to stay home with my child a few weeks ago. also made for a long train ride or even longer car ride but coming home and feeling like I was on vacation while I walk on the beach or along the river is worth it! Totally agree! And a very beautiful spot.
