I personally love this area and wouldn't choose to grow up anywhere else. Everything about the atmosphere of country living is phenomamal. Nature is at your doorstep. Forrest are nearby as well as green pastures, ponds, and creeks. There seems to be something new to explore everyday. If I am frustrated I can go for a walk out to the horse stables and enjoy the breeze and blue sky. Cars drive by occasionally but I honestly don't mind the noise. Wild animals are also everywhere. We have about five rabbits that come out around sunset and every once in a while I see our local fox we named Todd running around. Local stores are only fifteen minutes away and bigger cities are within 30-40 minutes away. Overall I wouldn't change anything about the area I live in.
