Home is Where Your Heart Is

Hi everyone!
My name is Nicki and I am so excited to be joining a wonderful group of bloggers over the next few days for the Heart's at Home Tour.
 Our home truly has become our "heart". 
We decided to make the move from the city where I was born, raised and lived all my life to an area that was small town and felt more country in November of 2009.

For the last four years we have raised our kids here, and built a business based around our farmhouse that was built in 1900. 

I took the leap from "city girl" to "country girl" and we got chickens.

 I bought an old truck for "pickin".
And started gardening.

 I even took up canning!!
 Recipe and tutorial HERE

We've cram packed a whole life time of memories into just four years here. I've learned the "home" is so much more than the four walls that surround you.

It's the chocolate kisses from your "helper" in the kitchen.
 It's the snuggle time with your favorite pets.
It's all of the LOVE that you squeeze into those four walls.

Again, I am so thrilled to be joining 14 other amazing bloggers for this tour. I hope you will pop in and visit each of them!
