Here at Lovelyish, we’re so grateful to live in the city. I know there are people who love the ‘burbs, but I am not one of them. There was never anything to do, so on weekends everyone just drank, smoked weed, and did drugs. The cultural center of our town was Starbucks and Barnes & Noble. Unless your kids knew each other, families mostly cocooned in their houses and luxuriated in the anonymous privacy of their homes.
Now I live in the city, and I feel so much more at home. There are cafes, good restaurants, street fairs and culture — all at the tip of your fingers. We have a block party every year, and people are very friendly though. It’s a totally different lifestyle.
Different strokes for different folks thought, right?
I know a lot of people who love to drive and can’t imagine paying extra to live in the city when you could get a bigger place in the burbs. I respect that, but it’s not for me. If I wanted to drive and have a big place, I’d move from the city straight to the country.
How about you: would you prefer to live in the city, suburbs, or country?
