Never Leaving - Part II

I know I've said this before, but this time I really mean it.

I'm never leaving this town. And if you were here, neither would you.

Because near this town, you would find this heart-wrenchingly beautiful, chipped-up mail box. You'd probably want to steal it and put it on your mantel at home, but you would understand that that sort of thing just doesn't fly around here, so you'd take a picture and keep on driving.

Near the outskirts of this town, you'd stumble upon an Average Joe house smack dab next to an acre-sized pasture of these. It would prove to you that wildflowers are like bronzer and gloss to an open field or a humdrum home.

In this town, you would find that even the Veterinarians understand the power of the bloom. Oh, and they also have a guy named Dr. Smiley.

In this town, you'd find two of the cutest little people you'll ever lay eyes on.

They would melt your heart into pure, liquid love. And then you would decide, once and for all, that you are never leaving.


*TGIF! Go celebrate here and here.

  23. Oh....love. You ain't kidding, pure love right there. Isn't it quite possibly the most wonderful thing in the world to want to be right where you are right this very minute. I recently moved home to a small farming community where wheat feilds and sweet onions out number the residents. I am right where I am supposed to be. So blessed. Have a great day in your little slice of heaven!
