small town....

photos from Bedford, Thayne, and Afton Wyoming.

In a small town you can...

...walk down the street pulling your kids in a sled. Right down the main street of town! The locals will wave, and you will all wave back.


...eat at Jaun's House of Tacos. It is literally, Jaun's House!


...or, maybe you're craving small town diner food?? (good, run down your arms greasy!)
You have to try Hubs Smokin' Grill!

...check out all the cute shops....and admire the bar signs.
I loved Dog Eared Books!

...pick up your mail at a post office that looks like this!

...."hit the slopes", anytime, anywhere. The third photo is my favorite photo in the history of photos.
...find the CUTEST little house ever. For sale. $144,000. On an acre. AN ACRE!!! You dream of moving there and opening your own bakery. and having chickens. and running to sister's house right around the "block".
sigh.

.. you almost convinced me... until I remember how cold it gets walking the dog and driving country roads.. (on & off) ... a nice place to visit my 'grands'...

gram said...

.. I don't remember seeing any chickens....

Natalie said...

SOOOO Tempting! But what about Target?

Shannon said...

Simply gorgeous. I seriously want to go browse at Dog Eared Books. Also, that house is adorable. And an acre is incredible, but it's an acre in the middle of nowhere. :)

I could do it.

LobotoME said...

DO IT! ;)

think of all of the $ you'll save NOT living near a target!

Tara said...

Wouldn't it be great to have an extra $144k laying around and just have that as a vacation home? I'm a little too dependent on convenience, but I totally would have been dreaming of that lifestyle too. Makenzie keeps talking about "someday when we get a horse." Poor thing.

AND when you DO get to go to Target, you could take sister with you...and she could babysit too!

swell.life said...

man, what am i doing in the suburbs? i want to pull my kiddo's sled down main street and meet you at dog eared books to warm up. :)

adorable pictures. you have me pining...

Amie said...

I've always told myself that I want to stay close to my family in California, but a home like this for $144k?!?!

Maybe I should rethink my living situation....

Erin said...

i've always had a secret desire to move to the middle of no where and live on a farm. i think i could be very very happy there.

these pictures are like a dream!

Maureen said...

RENEE said...

Kylie said...

Jessica Kettle said...

what a cute little town! i always think it would be so fun to live in a quaint little town like that... next to a fairly large city. =) doesn't it seem especially appealing when you start thinking how far money goes on a HOME?! oh brother.

could your photos be any more lovely? oh man.

ps. i actually DO live in a small town like this. and you just helped me remember the beauties of it. (sometimes when i think about the fact that target is an hour and a half away, i start to forget.)

Dandelion and Grey said...

OMGoodness I want to live there too! It looks so, so, so charming! That house is too cute! Looks like you had the loveliest time! xo

alliehoopes said...

okay, so you mention going to wy and then you come back with stunning pictures of places i actually go! my husband is from there (derek hoopes 1997...know him? maybe dusty or becky?) and whenever we go visit his family we always go to the bookstore as well as the second-hand shop around the corner with the wonderful baby clothes. you've made it look more beautiful then even in real life

Morgan said...

Ok, this is definitely my kind of town. Never before had I considered living out in the middle of nowhere, but your pictures and descriptions just make it all sound so very appealing. I want that house!
