i love living in a small town.
where you wake to the rooster's crow and the honor stand is just a short walk away.
where everyone remembers your name and neighbors become your friends.
where traffic slows at 6 o'clock and everything closes by 8.
where dogs can be unleashed and your spirit can roam free.
where waiters remember your favorites and the mailman rings your doorbell.
where the market becomes a gathering place and everyone waves from their car.
where walks are routine and strangers say hello.
i love small towns, because the time seems to pass by just a little slower.
