About Us

The City Girl & Co

Inspiring you to live your next great thing with a creative and positive vibe. Whether it is through the paper goods (I still love REAL mail, & HC Farm provides the notecards!), or whether it is through enjoying the beauty of HC Farm's framed calligraphy (You can buy the goods!), or whether you laugh along with me at my silly "City Girl in the Country" adventures,  I hope I will encourage you.

So... grab a cuppa coffee and meet me on the top veranda. I love to talk, and I have a lot to say.



The City Girl

I saw a mole, and I didn't scream. I miss Target and Anthropologie. And the bike trail. I drink coffee on the top veranda... every day like clockwork. Special shout-out to The Author (my husband) who puts up with lots of my wild ideas and fixer upper projects. He has the muscles and the tools to do it all. Yay!



The Labradoodle

Sweetest and smartest dog in the world is becoming quite the old girl, but  loves all the new smells  in the country. She is my faithful friend.

The Party Girl

Stop everything! Here comes the party! Forget coffee on the veranda, it is time to throw the red kong. Nothing else matters in life but the red kong... except food. Oh, and  following The City Girl's every step while wondering when it will be time to throw the red kong.
