I’ve shared with you that I recently moved from Delaware to Pennsylvania. I sold my house and got rid of so much clutter and, in general, stuff. I’ve always lived in places that have been at least 800 square feet. My first house after I got married was just under 1600 sq ft. My last home before moving to PA was 950 sq ft.
Every month, on the first Friday, my town shut down the main streets around our Borough. It’s never postponed or canceled. Rain or snow, the show will go on! This is one of the joys I’ve found living in a small town.
Yesterday I took a time out from life and went driving around my new town. As it was a Sunday, the Amish were out making their rounds, visiting friends and families after going to church. The Amish, while hardworking are so laid back. They know their place in the world and enjoy it. Their slower paced lifestyle is something we could all learn from. While in my car, I never feel that I’m “stuck” behind them. Sometimes I’ll wait awhile before going around them. But, not too long as I don’t want to scare them.
Recently I moved to Pennsylvania from Delaware. This is the first time I’ve lived out of Delaware. I was nervous, and still am! I don’t know anyone around here. It’s a little nerve wracking when you move to a new location and all you feel capable of doing is staying in your home and waiting for time to fly by.
