Why

September 8, 2010

When we told people we were moving from the city to my small hometown, the usual response was a “Really?!?” followed by “Why?”

Sometimes they Why was honestly curious. People wanted to know our plans. Sometimes they why was incredulous, why would be leave all the comforts of the big city (SuperTarget! 24-hour grocery stores! TJ Maxx!) for a small town that has two stoplights and one grocery store that’s closed on Sundays.

Sometimes I wonder that myself. Why would I leave all those creature comforts? A great job. A daycare that my kids loved and thrived at. Target. Oh Target. How I miss you.

We liked the city, and all the comforts, but it didn’t feel like home. Neither the hub nor I are really big city people. We like visiting, but on a day-to-day basis, we like a smaller, slower pace, especially now that we have kids to worry about. The hub was getting a little burned out on his cubicle-land job and we wanted the change. It was now or never, so we jumped.

Besides, how could I live without scenery like this:

It won’t be perfect and it won’t be easy, but it feels right, and that’s all that matters.
