1. Kathy, I had to laugh at your description of Alco because we have one here, as well (well, not in our town, but in the closest town to us). I completely agree with your assessment. πŸ™‚ Sometimes I really miss Walmart, but other times I’m glad to be without it. The clearance sections get me every time. πŸ™‚ I actually lived in Waukesha, Wisconsin, for 2 years when my parents were in Bible school. I remember really enjoying the sledding in winter!

  2. I had to chuckle – the picture of the creek? With the metal bars on the bridge? I sat there and looked at that picture and thought, “How did she get my picture?!” Then I realized that your bridge has metal bars – ours is stone. Otherwise, though, I have a very similar picture of the creek behind our house. πŸ™‚
    Looks so beautiful – thanks for sharing with us!

  3. Coming (late) from The Loft! Beautiful pictures and great story about how God moved you back to what you’d hoped to leave behind and how you came to love it <3 Thanks for sharing your beautiful town with us!

  4. Beautiful pictures! I am loving these posts here on the Loft this week. I come from a small town, but nowhere near as small as some, I’m finding! πŸ™‚ I love the pictures of snow and of fall leaves, since we don’t get much of either. Thank you for a window into your part of the world!

  5. It’s beautiful! I love your pictures. I grew up on a dairy farm in Michigan. πŸ™‚ I miss the country…the further out, the happier I am. Sounds like a wonderful place to raise your family.

  6. Oh Kathy,
    LOVED your pictures, it filled my soul with such peace and tranquility. Love seeing your pics on fb too. I’ll be writing about my town tonight, after my sons soccer game and daughter’s volleyball game. You live where we have longed to live, but has never been a part of God’s plan for us. Not yet, anyway!

  7. What a lovely place! I think I would adore it. You had me with the pictures of the sunflowers and the silo. Thanks so much for joining us this week at The Loft. I’m so glad to see your town!

  8. Kathy, first, I cannot get off the statement you were a hairstylist! I had no clue! You will have to give me a hair cut next time I see you-I’ve been cutting my own for over 2 years! Ha!

    Even though you are lacking a Target and mall (I have several of both within 15 minutes), you are blessed with the beautiful views. All my views are of surburban life and as much as I love it, well, it’s just not very picturesque. Keep posting all those beautiful pictures of your town and maybe I can pick something up for you at a Target if you need something. πŸ™‚

      It’s been a long time since I’ve heard “And can you bring your scissors?” But I will try to remember!
      And yes, we are BLESSED with beauty here. And an hour is much shorter than it once was now that I’m used to it. Plus I am at least 10 mn closer to Target now. πŸ˜‰
      Thanks for stopping over Amy!
