I moved here with my parents in 2006 and it ahs been a pretty good place to grow up, however now that i am in college, i do not see myself living here ever again. I just dont like it here as much as I like the envirionment in other places.
Adorable little town on the outside of Lubbock with a very well known bakery. This town is also home to some great churches.
