This is such a lovely town. I have lived there my whole life, though I do not there now, but I visit Fairfield softer, for my grandfather still lives there. It is a small town, and everyone there is very friendly. Since it is small, most people know each other very well. It is very quiet there, and is beautiful during all four seasons. It is not difficult to make friends due to most of the people being friendly.
