We live in a small town of less that 1,000 people. We lived in town
for 12 years until last year. It was nice to live in town,
everything was in walking distance. But, I really wanted to get away
from the traffic and being next to your neighbor. We moved out to
the country last year (about 8 miles out of town). We live in a 1918
old brick farmhouse with lots of character. We are on about an acre
on a dead end road and absolutely love the peace and quiet and the
ability to run around. We planted a garden this year for the first
time & plan on doing some canning. We have apple trees and will be
making apple pies to freeze soon.
Living in a small community is nice. You really get to know quite a
few people. I lived in a larger city, loved the extra shopping and
restaurants, but decided I liked the country better. We still have
restaurants & have to drive further to shopping, but you combine all
of your trips into one big trip.

the small town where my husband lived when we got married.ï¿½ It
definitely took some getting used to.
