Why I love rural living...

My husband always laughs at me because, when it comes to where I live, I'm either hardcore city or completely rural. I either want to be living in a condo in the middle of the hubbub or I want a few acres by myself in the middle of nowhere. Suburbia? Not for me.

Because Orlando isn't really a huge city with an awesome metropolitan scene (sorry) we decided to live outside of Orlando in one of the soon-t0-be-extinct rural areas. We have over an acre and we love the quiet, the scenery, the lack of conflict (no Homeowner's Association, yay!)... and I'm constantly reminded why I love living out here.

Today I got that reminder in the form of a young doe. I was organizing my fabrics into more boxes (gosh, have I outgrown three already?!), looked out my office window and saw a deer grazing in our yard just feet from my window! Sweet! I ran to get my camera and this picture emerged. Sadly, a passing car scared her away... but what a great pick-me-up. I love wildlife, with the lone exception being the Cottonmouth snake we found in our pond one day, and I must say it's great to live out in the middle of nowhere!

Anyway, seriously... go check out our new website! I made it myself!

My business partner and I have started a new website for moms who live in the suburbs, small towns and rural settings. It’s called Out of Bound Moms and it’s just a community for moms to get together and chat about small town or suburban life and hang out in general. There is a social networking community where you can sign up for free and promote your blog. You can start a group page and promote your blog through that. The website has free membership and we don’t sell your info. it just has you sign up so you can have your own page, private messaging and privacy settings for pics and videos. It’s run my myself and my business partner charmaine, both of us are work at home moms who live in a small town. Anyways check out the website and sign up it is a fun and easy way to promote your blog that way you can drive new business to your website.
