And I love it.
This weekend we headed out to watch the local high school's boys basketball team play for (and win!) the state championship title. There had to be the majority of the town there. It was crazy to see all of the red and black in the crowd.

since security wouldn't let the fans on the floor.
Yes, it is inconvenient that Target is 30 minutes away. It is also inconvenient that our two grocery stores are somewhat small, and I can't always find the products I want. Its also not my favorite thing to commute 25 minutes each way to work, but I love the sense of community that comes with living on a small town. I love seeing people at the grocery store or the gym or the bank and stopping to chat. And, although I do love my job, I do sometimes wish I was teaching here in our local school district to have more of a connection to the community.
Are you a small town girl, or do you love the city?
