I am happy to announce my very first blog! It seems these days that everyone and their mother have a blog now, so why another one? I suppose I have always wanted one, a place to document my thoughts and adventures. Something for myself. I really admire other people's blogs, especially those who really let you into their world.
So welcome. This is just the beginning. My name is Katie Drum. I am twenty-nine and I live in the rural cornfields of Illinois with my awesome husband, Jason. I live in the same town I have lived in since I was twelve. I used to dream of moving off to some exotic city, but now I find myself craving the quietness of the country.
I am an artist and illustrator, you can check out some of my art at my website www.thenaivetree.com
I hope to use this blog to share with you some of my new projects, art, photography, people I think are super talented, recipes, special finds, whatever strikes my fancy.
I spend most my days managing the farm store at Heritage Prairie Farm. The farm raises honey bees and organically grown produce. I still pinch myself and laugh because I'm still not sure how I ended up there, but its an agrarian dream. I like being closer to nature and I don't feel like I am selling my soul to anyone.
Whats your favorite way to get in touch with nature? Sometimes for me, its as simple as watching a really great thunderstorm. Which we are in great need of by the way. Everyone do your best rain dance.
