Chit Chat: Small Town Life

Main Street

Chit Chat: Small Town Girl Technically speaking I live on a farm outside of a very small town. Town is actually about 20 miles away. Growing up on a farm and in a small town has been amazing. Being on a farm surrounded by other family members has been a lot of fun. As a kid I roamed the woods around the farm with my siblings and cousins. We would play all kinds of imaginative games out there. Being the youngest along with my sister Tiffany we always had the worst roles in these games, like being monkeybirds (if you never saw Pirates of Dark Waters as a kid you definitely need to rectify this situation that you are currently in). But we always had a blast with the others. During the Summer at night we would hunt fire flies and play hide-and-go-seek. During the Winter we would thrive on snow days and have massive snow ball fights and sled races. We loved sledding but we almost always crashed into things. It was great having so many friends around to play with and to do things with.
My siblings and I always loved going into town with Mom or Dad. You can honestly drive from one side of town to the under in under 5 minutes. Navigating a small town is easy and everything is so easy to find and to get to. Small towns are just so interesting and unique with so many locally owned small businesses. Living in or around a small town means that everyone knows everyone and that you are always running into people you know. This means you can almost always count on running into someone to talk or in finding help if you should need it. There is such a sense of community here because of how well you know everyone.



  1. I grew up in a small town in the state of Michigan (before I moved to the UK at the age of 20) It was fun but other times it could be boring or gave me the sense of needing bigger space. But, it was nice that everyone knew each other and we spent all the days outside having fun. I miss it sometimes :) xx

  2. I grew up in a small towm(however not rural) 10 km outside in a big city so i dont have that experience-but I remember how nice this community spirit u are talking about is while I was on a holiday on the mountains where my parents have a house

  3. Definitely a little jealous! I've lived in the city now my entire life, but I dream of settling down on a farm some day.

  4. Wow that is small but sounds nice. I grew up in suburbia 20 miles outside NYC, but it was pretty build up, more like living in Queens or parts of Queens. Sounds nice!
