20 Hilarious Quips That Perfectly Sum Up Life in a Small Town
I grew up on Long Island, New York and in Orange County, California…no small town living for me. But I’d watch movies or TV shows set in small towns and it all just seemed so charming and appealing.
Ten years ago, my husband and I packed up our suburban lives and our three kids, and we moved to a house in the middle of the woods on a rural island in the Pacific Northwest, where we did not know a soul.
I absolutely love living on this 10 mile long, 5 mile wide island, where on any given walk you’ll pass by Little Free Library Stands, neighborhood farm stands, and deer crossing your path.
It’s just big enough so that you don’t know everyone, but small enough to feel a real sense of community.
A while back, I posted a tweet about small town life and the comments were just gold. So I decided to make a whole post about it and here it is! Thank you to everyone who gave me permission to post your comments here, I appreciate it!
