Life in the Woods

I always love it when we feature someone I feel like I “know”. Today’s featured blogger and I chat on twitter and email and I just adore her too. Let me introduce you to Susan of Wild Life in the Woods. You will adore her too- I guarantee it.

Meet Susan:

After many years of enjoying life in the big city, we moved our family to the Boonies, where you’ll find us living our Wild Life in the Woods. Living with no one but the deer and the turkeys for neighbors can either drive a girl crazy, drive her to blog, or both. I’m a natural born story teller, and I love sharing the things I’m learning about food, too. So stop by the Boonies for a little visit, where you’ll find food, faith, and fun.

Here are some goodies Susan picked out just for you:
Slow Cooker tortilla Soup

Faith: Heartbreak

Fun: Vanity Fair


  1. I would love to live in the boonies again! Although I have to admit I DO love being just minutes away from a shopping mall nowadays! And luckily the hubs and I do live on the edge of town so we can pretend we’re in the boonies when we need to ;)

  4. Sounds like a wonderful blogger and her life change reminds me bit of mine, but we traded big city living for small town not quite the boonies,lol although I feel like that many times.

  7. I grew up in the boonies, with deer and cows, so I know how it goes.

    • We’re sorely lacking in cows in my corner of the boonies.
      They’d need two legs longer than the other two to keep from falling off the ridge.
      And they could only walk around the hill in one direction. If they turned around, they’d roll down.

  8. I’ll trade you my life in Brooklyn with your life in the boonies. I’m jealous!

    You get to be in charge of you. :)

  28. Good morning!

    Living in the boonies would be a fun experience. My daughter would love the deer.
    Amber recently posted..Hey, It’s Okay Tuesday!

    • I admit: I still get excited whenever I see them.
      To my dogs, I call the deer the “big dogs”. We have lots of big windows, and I tell the dogs to “go look at the BIG DOGS outside”.

      They totally believe me.
