We live in a lovely, small town.
It is home to about 60,000 people.
I know, it doesn't sound small, but it feels small.
And, not small in the I-hate-that-everyone-knows-my-business-can't-go-to-the-store-without-makeup-mostly-everyone's-related way that people love to hate.
It feels small in the I-love-that-everyone-waves-and-sometimes-people-recognize-me-and-that's-okay-because-they-are-friendly-not-creepy way that makes you really feel like you are part of a community.
I never thought I'd say this about any city in Maryland (don't hate me, I'm still a Cali girl in my heart), but I almost love it here.
I still have a few issues (why do people drive SO slow, and seriously with the livestock) with this county, not to mention this state (a sidewalk would be nice).
But, my neighbors, and I don't just mean the ones on my street, I mean the ones that I see at the grocery store, and the carnival (dontcha just love those, Carnies and all?), and the hospital, are pretty cool. Not exactly cool in the traditional sense, but still, pretty cool.
And, our Fourth of July, which actually starts on the third of July around here, is off to an amazing start.
We spent Friday evening at an annual local event that kids and adults alike can't help but to enjoy.
See. Doesn't he look like he's lovin' it?
How could you not love this?
Jeez, even Santa loves it. What? Didn't you know he has a summer home in Maryland?
Can't wait for today's festivities.
We're having a block party!
Wish me a drama free day... you know how neighbors can be:)!
