Okay, so we live in this really small town in nowhereville Utah. In the almost four years since we moved here I have actually come to love this little town. I don't like being so far from family, I wish there was somewhere decent to eat(no offense to all the fast food joints with disgusting nouns in their name), and I wish there was somewhere to shop. But I love that people know my name and I love that feeling of being at home no matter where you go in this town. For the most part the people have been really nice and welcoming and while I know that gossip travels fast in a small town I mostly just ignore it (especially since I'm not a part of the rumor mill). But I have this personal philosophy. In this town there are a lot of people that sell different things to make a little extra money and so they can do something they love. Well, I feel that I support my community and the women in my community by buying things from them and attending these parties. But every time I've had a party I've had very few people come. I am completely understanding about the lack of money, and I know none of us really have any. But it can still be disheartening when you go to so much work and so few come. This is not meant to make anyone feel guilty for not coming, and I really do love everyone here that I've met, but sometimes I can't help but wonder if some things would be easier living in a bigger town. (Although I imagine I'd just be missing the small town and want to go back :) I'm pretty sure the answer lies with me, and while I am here I will make this my home. So I send my love to all my fellow small towners!
