Recently I had the chance to experience suburban life. It didn’t take long for the welcoming neighbors, beautiful two-story homes, and manicured landscaping to win me over. The sounds of a crowded city were replaced with neighbors enjoying the afternoon at the local park. My favorite aspect is the sense of community. The simple act of stopping to say hello or inviting friends over for dinner is a refreshing change. I’ve also discovered some scenic trails to hike and look forward to exploring more of the area.
