First, I love that everybody is so nice and everybody is always smiling.
Second is the nature. It is so gorgeous here, and everybody does their part to keep it that way. Even just watering plants and planting them makes a difference!
Third, I love living by a public library, and I love the idea of borrowing books if we can’t buy them.
Fourth is the schools! I love living near schools that encourage kids and tell them they can make a difference. Everybody can if they are encouraged. The teachers here are so inspiring, and they also stop bullying fast.
