Well I like living in the city.

Granted, Minneapolis is no NYC or LA. But while it's a nice place to visit I would not want to live in the middle of nowhere.

I live in the city, just not in like the heart of down town.

I go out to get the mail, water plants, whatever all the time in my pjs, sans bra, hair a mess, whatever

I dont talk or even see my neighbors every day...but its nice (for me) to have them when a nice hello or quick convo perks your day up. When our next door neighbors were there, it was awesome having kids for mine to play with. I LOVE being able to get to the zoo, science center, museums, parks, hiking trails, on and on within 20 minutes. I love having a diverse and large group of people to make up my "community".

I however ALSO love the country. I love open spaces and wooded glens. I love having animals of all sorts and room to just be.

That's what I love about Lancaster, pa. I call it country in the city. Right now we live in a neighborhood and right at the end of our cul de sac... Is a cornfield lol. 5 minutes down the road and there are farm properties, 5 minutes past that is the next small burgh, and 5 minutes grom my house in the other direction is a shopping plaza with groceries, pharmacy, big lors, restaurants, liquot store, hair dresser, k mart, pet store, etc etc.

It is the perfect fit... You can have tons of land and be "in the country" while being 5 minutes from a neighborhood and amenities you need or you can live in a neighborhood and still feel in te country... Or you can be downtown and be right in the city.

On top of that, it's incredibly beautiful

I'm locked in the salon. I locked myself in to count cash A's when I went to leave my key broke off in the lock. Panicking a little.

I really want to drive to Dallas to visit my best friend, who I haven't seen in 3 years. It would be so **** expensive though... the gas itself would be doable, but Riff can't come, so I'd have to pay for boarding for him because I don't have anyone to watch him. Then I'd have (want?) to stay at a h/motel because she is living with her mom so I wouldn't want to stay in the living room, and her boyfriend lives there now too so we couldn't share her room like we did last time I visited because that would be... weird. Then I'd probably want to find a daycare there for Rowan for at least a couple of days so that we could actually go out and do things, since I couldn't leave him at the hotel. I'm not sure about leaving him at her place because it's a small apartment and she has a dog I'm not sure he'd get along with, so I wouldn't want them together unsupervised.

So it's not just the round trip gas like I was thinking, it's also a hotel, boarding for Riff, daycare for Rowan, saving up to be able to take the time off in the first place... all to go to a place I hate But man, I miss her. I wish she wasn't afraid of flying. It would be SO much easier (and cheaper) for her to come up here.

See, a "small town" is doable for me, most have everything in a very convenient distance, but it's not too ... "Urban".

I was more referencing "big" cities & urban areas ... No way, never could do those.

Agreed. I thought I would hate living in the city (although really I live in the burbs and work in the city-ish) and I LOOOVE it! But it's also easy to find space here in Minneapolis, it's green!

Yes, Minneapolis loves its green space.

It's funny, I don't live in the most urbanized, concrete jungle, downtown part of the city but I am not that far away from it, and my neighborhood reminds me a lot of the small towns my grandmothers lived in except the houses are a bit closer together. People who are expecting the version of a city in their head are often surprised when they visit us and see what it is really like.
