I love my life here in Toledo. I love the people, the opportunities, and the shit ton of restaurants and stores. I’m happy to be raising my daughter in an urban setting. She’s going to meet lots of different people and try lots of different things.
Our house seems to be close to everything and we’re a little spoiled.
But my life actually began far from city limits. You may never guess that if you look at my current situation, but then I open my mouth. Ah yes, there’s that twang. I was once a country girl.
Is anyone else here from a rural area?
Why are rural areas usually conservative? Lack of diversity? Isolation?
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live there now. Have things changed?
I spent my entire childhood in the country. I headed to the city for college when I was eighteen and never looked back. Internet was still dial-up back then. Surely things have gotten more progressive by now, right?
I’d love to hear from some of you living in rural areas. How do you deal?
Today my husband and I visited these gigantic corn statues. They’re in Dublin, Ohio — about two hours from Toledo. I thought the photos were fitting for the post. 🙂
