What do you love about where you live?

I love where I live. You know that warm, fuzzy feeling you get after that commercial when the housewife throws out the mop for something new and snazzy, but then the mop hooks up with the feather duster in the attic? Maybe I should have just left it at, “I love where I live.”

It’s easy to just say you love something – or someone, though considerably less easy – so I made myself sit down and truly think of specific things I love about where I live instead of just covering it with a whole blanket of hearts and roses.

…the scenery here is breath-taking. It never gets old. I’ve been seeing, living and breathing it for four years, but I still pause to take in the view every time I top out over a hill…

…summer nights cool out to 50 degrees which is 100 degrees of awesome…

…they make darn good cheese in Cougar-ville…

…cows, horses, and farming are all outside my back door…

…I don’t have to drive far to do what I like to do…

…but at the same time, there are tons of great places to take an afternoon drive to: Palouse Falls, Hells Canyon, Flathead Valley…

…Doc is happy here, a happy dog equals a happy owner…

…I have a 3-holer outhouse in my yard! And a load of lilacs, but the outhouse trumps them (picture pending)…

…and so much more, but my brain ends are still trying to fire up this morning…

Oh, and to be fair to my Iowa roots, there are three major things I miss about the Midwest: sunsets and sunrises, thunderstorms, lightning bugs on summer nights (oh, and the sound of locusts!)

Now it’s your turn, what do you love about where you live?

  1. I’ve lived in beautiful places all my life, but where I live now is one of the most beautiful, inspiring and peaceful places I’ve ever lived. I’m surrounded by beautiful countryside, awesome cow horses, the best set of registered Angus cattle I’ve ever been around and a wonderful, loving husband. God has answered my prayers, and yes, it took many years of patience for all of it to come together!

  2. …you’re leaving a comment from heaven? 🙂 Thanks for stoppin by, Francine! Sounds like an absolutely wonderful place.
