This morning the TV was on and the NYC mayor was saying there are 28,000 people per square mile living in New York City (or some part of NYC – I wasn’t really listening). Vince said “28,000 per square mile??” and we both laughed. We started counting neighbors. I’m not sure there are 28 people per square mile out here where we live. We sat here, counting and we believe there are 6 people living within our square mile.
When we moved here, you may remember that we struggled to find a house. We had so many things we wanted. No close neighbors was one of the things on our list. We definitely got that wish and it’s one of the things that makes it so hard to leave here. Every time we think of a place we might want to live, look at real estate and realize that pretty much everything we want . . we have right here, except for that little family in Missouri!
This lifestyle isn’t for everyone, obviously, but it’s so perfect for us.
