Wondering Wednesday- Do you live in a rural or city setting?

Posted July 15, 2020 by thebeccafiles in / 15 Comments


Wondering Wednesday is a new weekly post started by my wonderful blogging friend Jessica over at A Baker’s Perspective. The idea is to give readers a chance to get to know the blogger behind all of the book reviews and other blog posts. I think this is a great idea and I’m glad to be a part of the fun 🙂

Question: Do you live in a rural or city setting?

Most definitely rural. I am NOT a city girl haha. The road I grew up on was loaded with fields and I used to play in the creek behind my parents’ house with my brothers. Most of my adult life has been spent living in two towns that are quite similar as far as size and population. In both instances I have lived close enough to the libraries to walk, along with a few other conveniences. I don’t mind the closeness as long as it’s a small town. I’m not into the big tall buildings and crowded streets of cities. I like being close to nature trails and fields. I also prefer the sounds of crickets and raindrops to car horns and traffic.

What type of setting do YOU currently live in? Is it your favorite type of setting to be in?

    I grew up in a small town, only about 2000 people. But we did live in town.
    I now live in a town of about 20,000 people, but that’s still a relatively small town. I can walk to the library too, I can see it from my front door😀

  2. I live in a suburban area. It is a small town outside of a larger city. We have farms, roadside stands etc. but also shopping, banks, libraries etc.

    If you had asked me years ago, I would have said I would NEVER live in the country. However, drug dealers, crime rate and city life as it was in the 80’s had me running to the country. When we moved and built our dream home 3 years ago, it HAD to be in the country but close by to things due to medical problems. We live on the outskirts of town on a small acreage at the base of Bear Bluff Mountain. We are only 2 miles from the hospital but have no neighbors other than loads of critter visitors that we enjoy photographing.
