OK so I have known for some time that I lived in a small college town but it did not really hit me till today. As a family we went to the local farmers market and met up with my brother and his girlfriend. We walked around for a bit and it was cool to see all the stuff they were selling.
I wished that I had kept up with my necklace making and had ventured out to sell them there. BUt that is a thought I will save for another not so busy time in my life.
So anyway after we hung out at the farmers market for some time we then went to a play at an art gallery. It was "School House Rock Live!" It was a very cute play. We sat on the gallery's hard wood floor to watch and the girls loved it. BUt I think that thing that was impressive was the amount of people that were there. The only reason we heard about it was because of my brother's girlfriend. It seemed that alot of people knew about it. And afterward as we were going back to our car I just realized how many people were out on this beautiful Saturday just wondering around town. Gazing through windows, Chatting with friends, and just generally getting out. it had the total small town feel. That was the first time in the 4 years we have lived here that I really realized that this town has a great atmosphere but is not really that small of a town.
