When we first moved to this town I started looking for charm.
I'm all about small town and country livin'
but its totally different when you actually LIVE in those places.
Miles away from target.
But we had been granted an amazing blessing in a house
and I was determined to find good in all the areas that encompassed it.
And I just have to say, I have truly fallen in love
and everyone on the street (all 3 of them) smiled and nodded
as me and my children stumbled out of our van.
The postman who helped me was extremely kind and helpful and welcomed us to town
as I filled out a change of address form.
Then we drove to Steve's Meat Market.
No, it's not a single's bar.
It's a real live butcher shop.
With cows grazing behind it!!
They actually process the beef in house!
And this all-natural food lover's dream come true.
They also carry chicken, fresh farm eggs, some local produce and honey, BUFFALO meat (!!)
and will process deer after your hubby goes hunting. ;)
After that I drove Jaymin to school and was home 3 minutes later.
We live 3 MINUTES from Jaymin's school.
all bearing cookies and brownies
and all have been unbelievably helpful and welcoming.
The other day after school,
I walked out my front door and almost started laughing.
It was like a scene out of Leave it to Beaver!
All the neighborhood kids were riding bikes and playing in yards
and neighbors were chit chatting in driveways and walking dogs.
Jeff and I keep waiting for the horror movie to begin. Lol!
Or at least for all the women to be revealed as robots (Stepford Wives)
or for us to realize we're stuck inside the television (Pleasantville).
But we are way too imperfect for that fear to last long. ;)
Jeff keeps saying "let's wait as long as we can before exposing our wt"
and then Jett runs out of the house with no pants on.
I guess the cat's out of the bag.
Hopefully our neighbors won't judge us too harshly. ;)
