Small Town USA

One of the best parts about moving for us was being able to be in a small town and community. The kind of place "where everybody knows your name..." and pretty much everywhere you go you see a familiar face.

We both grew up in small towns and greatly enjoyed it. We thought moving back to AB's hometown would be a great place for us and our future kids.

But it is also so nice to not be in the hustle & bustle of life. Seems like everyone lives a much slower pace of life.

And I love it!

I can honestly tell you I do not miss SA one bit. I definitely do not miss the traffic or people. I thought I might miss all the places to eat - because we have very few eating establishments here & on Sunday pretty much your only option is Dairy Queen but I don't. We eat at home much more often these days which I also love.

Right now it is harvest time so AB has been working a lot and it has been HOT! I have also passed more tractors on the roads than cars these days. I am hoping to go out to the fields one day & ride the combine with AB and get some pictures of this year's harvest.

So far small town USA has been wonderful to us! This evening I took some photos for Honey B. and snapped a few for here while standing in the front yard.

Here is our small town USA bliss...

Callie is even enjoying her new home

already plowed grain field

the view out our front door - pretty heavenly!


  1. So glad that you got all moved & are enjoying the new place. Looks heavenly from the pics. I LOVE living in the country & wouldn't want any other way either. :-)

    PS : Thanks again for the package. He has been sleeping with the blanket everyday since we got it.

  2. That is heavenly! So beautiful, glad you made it.

  3. Thanks ladies :) and so glad Barker is enjoying his new blanket! & you are so very welcome!!

  4. Thanks for the comment on my blog!

    I've always wanted to know what it was like to live in a small town - I grew up in Atlanta so that is the farthest thing from a small town! I look forward to reading your blog and learning what life is like in a small town. :)

    Good luck with your new school year!!!
