Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for people who care.  My small town is full of history and historic buildings.  We have many wonderful people who volunteer their time and make sure these buildings are cared for and open to the public.  Take, for example, our old courthouse.  Built in 1802, it continues to be open to the public and decorated to the nines for Christmas.  Here is featured its fine fireplace.  

What are you thankful for today?  Shout it out, link it up, and let us all know!

  8. Like you Michelle we're very lucky to live near a small town of two thousand (Spring Valley, Minnesota. We grew up in the Twin Cities, met as teacher here and decided to raise our family here. It was a good choice surrounded by corn and soybean fields, friendly farmer neighbors, less than a mile from town and a half hour from Mayo Clinic in Rochester and a few "big city amenities." It was the best decision we ever made (besides getting married)....:)
