See that girl in the shades?

Well she's a friend {met through the Country Living Fair}.........

She calls Kara to say "hello" every now & then......
Kara even calls her every now & then.........
{oh, the other gals are friends too! Bethie & Jeanne}

We've been through the happenings at the shows
from crowds of people where you can't get out of your booth too pee.
{no, kidding Country Living Fair 2008}
&
through the hurricane winds of Country Living Fair 2009
*and the square dancers*
{sorry folks the square dancers are a inside joke,
you had to be there to understand! Only the Farm Chicks & the girls in that picture get this "fond memory"}

Any-hoo, she is a doll and lives in this cute, quaint 100 year old home in St. Charles
Illinois. Close to metropolis, Target, Anthropologie, Starbucks, Trader Joe's, Ikea, blah, blah, blah.........
ok, you get the picture! Darcy & I live smack- dab in the middle of a field.
Darcy lives closer to civilization than Kara.
We think Kasey just opens that cute garage door and wow, there's Starbucks with Marcy
serving her a Venti Latte.

Last week Kara rang Kasey {ok, she does have a cell phone!}
"Have you seen the new Country Living, yet?"
"Noooooooo, says Kasey"....... {sighing, Kara is pretty sure she was}
"Well, mine came & you're indeed in there!"

Finally, Kara in the middle of nowhere gets a glossy copy before
Kasey in suburbia!

While Kara's on the phone with Kasey, Kasey is typing on the computer
then tells me seconds later she's marching through the doors
of Barnes & Noble to see if Country Living is there {it's not}.
Hummmmph, Kara just spots a John Deere Tractor in her view.
The closest Barnes & Noble from Kara's house is 45 minutes away.
Kara hasn't been there in years.


Anyway congrats & hugs to you!
Love,
Kara + Darcy
