Moving Upstate: The Happy Ending

Last week we referred to one couple’s harrowing tale of relocating from Brooklyn to the great beyond of upstate New York. Well, this week I happened upon a very different tale — a Brooklyn transplant (Real Dutchess Mom) who fled the city when she got knocked up, and is loving life in her new country spot, especially the food. Her description of upstate motherhood sounds pretty good (minus the home birth, maybe): “We birth at home, we breastfeed in public, we garden, we have farms, we trudge through the mud, and may get dressed up for dinner on the town, but aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty.  The dirt’s clean up here.”

Maybe she wants to tour us through her house?

  1. That sounds very nice. One of the things that held us back from doing that is the commute. I wonder if they found a way to make a living there, or if the husband commutes and how that’s going?
