Welcome to Big City Bucolic, a stopping spot for weary urbanites longing for a breath of fresh air. I am a country girl living in a big city, trying to bring some of the calm, sensible, rustic, good-old-fashioned feel-good country style to the concrete metropolis in which I find myself. I love the country life. I love the small-town sensibility of folks who say hello when they meet you on the street. I love the casual drop-in visit, and I love the pace of living far, far away from the big smoke. For many long and complicated reasons, I we plan to live in Toronto for the foreseeable future, so it’s my intention (in good country-girl style) to make the most of the situation, and apply some country rules to our city life.
