My Hungarian Country Life

It's been 18 years since I lived on a dirt road. And now I live on one again. Two weeks ago we moved to a small Hungarian village just outside Budapest. We're surrounded by forest, hiking trails, birds chirping and fruit trees. It's still up for debate if it was a good decision: country life vs. city life. But here are some of the highlights I love so far...

Running on winding trails through the forest with views like this...

Picking cherries from the four trees in our garden.

Sitting in the garden, pruning the garden, planting the garden, watching the garden grow.

Harvesting lavender from our garden.

Fresh flowers in the house (from the garden).

Yes, I love the garden! And the 5 minute commute to work is a definite plus too. So far, country life is winning the debate. Or at least the garden is winning.
