I love living in a small town. We purchased our property here in 2000, and soon afterward we were blessed enough to actually be able to LIVE here.
Population under 1,500 – Home to my Heart.
Coming From A Large City
I came here from a large metropolitan city – I was raised in the Dallas, Texas area. I enjoyed all that Dallas had to offer when I was a young adult.
But as our children grew and went on to raise their own families, my heart longed to be in a different place. RancherMan & I wanted out of the fast-paced world of shining glass and concrete. We wanted MORE.
Small Town Charm
I absolutely love my small Texas town. And I love its boom-town architecture and the red brick road that runs through the middle of town.
The employees at the bank know us, and the owner of the restaurant smiles when he sees us and waves us in. The various shop owners invite us to stop in to chat. They’re all familiar and friendly faces. And they’re all our friends and neighbors.
Some of the best people I’ve ever known in my life were met right here in my small town. Honest, good-hearted people who would step in to help in an instant and expect nothing in return. I’ve enjoyed a community closeness that was missing in other places I’ve lived.
Some folks really enjoy the fun of the big city. Some, like me, long for a slower pace. Wherever it may be, home is where the ♥ is!
