The sound of lawn mowers cuts through the air. It is Memorial Day and there are a lot of people mowing their lawns. I think it is everyone who didn
My dream as well! Let us know of any availability out your way; as soon as we get a car we’ll be looking for small-town permanence…
I have lived in larger “big city” towns most of my life also, but in many different regions in the US and all of them have alittle different feel to them. I grew up in two larger cities, Cincinnati and Chicago consecutively. Chicago gave me the feeling that I had been in the country when I lived in Cincinnati, but funny I never felt that when I was living in Cincinnati. When I moved to Las Vegas, I was moving away from
Nashville and leaving behind alot of bad memories with the death of both my parents and moving to Las Vegas, seemed like a perfect place to “get lost”. The problem was, it was the perfect place to do just that, because I always felt like I was a small number amongst a crowd of many. It never made me feel very special about myself and I think instead of helping with depression, it probably contributed its own special form, even amongst the beauty of the big lights and glittery palaces. Now I live in a town that sits only about 15 miles away from where my husband grew up. There are family dinners, and baking parties and Kirk and I love the beautiful hometown library that has wonderful 150 yr old trees and park benches and the town melon festival every year. I enjoy the fact that we can get in the car and drive to a major metropolitan area within 45 minutes, but still visit a pumpkin farm in our town at Halloween or the orchards for fresh fruit throughout the year. And OH My! My kingdom for a great yard sale with lots of antiques!
