While I was living there and dreaming of moving to Kansas I got pretty fed up with the traffic and rude people. I knew I would miss the shopping and food options and honestly, I still do. I also miss the events and services available there. Here in Western Kansas there aren’t a lot of things going on and when there is, there aren’t multiple occurrences to fit your schedule (or your husband's). I guess that’s what makes the city though. Plenty of things to do and people to see. I never ran out of options if I wanted to go do something. Plus, new things were available there that you have to wait for here. The one plus side of that is that by the time it makes it here, it’s been proven to be good. Right?
No matter what, out of material things or service options, I miss my friends that I had to go do the things with, the most. When I moved, I left my best friends and siblings which SUCKS. But I gained a husband, son and extended family that I love. It’s a much simpler life here and I am not going to complain about that because I highly enjoy SIMPLE. Now more than ever. Bringing up a child in a rural setting is what I’ve always wanted and I get to do that so that makes missing the city easier to deal with.
Have you moved from the city to a rural area? If so, what do you miss most about the city?
