Yep I’m a city girl. Seriously. If I even fantasize living in the suburbs my chest get all tight and I feel panicky.
I attribute this to growing up in the suburbs. The very deep depths of the suburbs. We were 15 minutes from a store.
And on a hot day you could smell cow poop from the farms.
I love being able to walk places for dinner or being able to walk to the coffee shop to feed my coffee addiction.

    I love the city too. I grew up in one and then my parents moved us to the suburbs when I was 15. Cringe. Horrible timing, right? Anyhow, I grew up and moved right back. I find I need lots of trips into the country to connect with nature, but I’ll always be a city girl at heart.

    I also grew up in the suburbs. But the city has always given me stress. We moved to a small town (population: maybe 1200?) six years ago and I have found my forever home. Everybody knows everybody, everybody knows who my kids belong with and who they don’t, and I can also walk from my home to wonderful restaurants and coffee shops, plus the post office, grocery store, library, school, parks and city pool. I feel so lucky to have found such a gem in the beautiful NW.

    I’ve always been a city boy, but I have a love for the country. There’s a spit-hole of a ‘city’ in Indiana that, no matter which way you go (left or right), it’s forty-five minutes to the nearest city with a population that means anything. I was blessed by living up there for almost three weeks during Christmas time a couple years ago. Christmas snow was amazing, though I spent most of my time doing doughnuts on the ice. It was also peaceful enough that I managed a few crappy pictures of wildlife wandering the hills. Ahhh, the peacefulness that is nowhere to be found in the city.

    i find the burbs to be really isolating. it took having kids for me to notice this for some reason. we go into the city as much as possible.
    being able to walk/ride bikes places and going down to one car instead of two is a requirement for when we move. right now our nearest stores are cvs and wal-mart and the traffic makes it too dangerous to even go there by foot or bike. i pine for our escape out of the burbs.
