I don't know if I can actually call where I live a "small town", but at the very least, it's a small city. It's full of a lot of really interesting people that come from many different backgrounds.
You have the ones that have lived in the same house, on the same land since their granddaddy farmed that land back in the early 1900's.
You have the ones that have just landed here from Europe because of a new car plant being built here.
You have the transplants from the north who think they're moving into Hicktown, USA and soon find out that they couldn't be further from the truth.
You have illegals from Central America who have come here to do the jobs that many others won't, so they can try to support the others they left behind.
You have young professionals who have lived here their entire lives and are now settling into a new pair of shoes that don't belong to a parent.
And you have me, a 30 something mom who is home-grown. Who loves going to the grocery store and having the cashier recognize me because I shop there every week. Who loves having cool activities to share with my kids and running into old friends that I haven't seen in ages...and picking up right where we left off. Man, I love this town.
Do you love where you live? Why?
