Favorite Things in My Town: Link Party
August 31, 2011
Greetings all, welcome to a fun little get together all about the favorite things in your town! I look forward to reading about where you all live and what you love about it.
Quickly, I’ll share my three favorite things about where I live. For those who don’t know, I live in a great little town called Petaluma in Northern California, which had a little feature in Country Living last year. It’s 45 minutes north of San Francisco, 30 minutes from the coast, and next door to Sonoma in the heart of the Wine Country, which brings me to my first favorite thing about where I live . . .
1) Proximity I’m a lucky gal, I get to make day trips to San Francisco and some weekends we head out to the coast, but my most favorite thing about my town is being surrounded by vineyards and having quick access to great wines.
2) Charm I appreciate so much the architecture of the classic homes in my town – we have a lot of unique Victorians and historic homes. Our family takes walks around town in the good weather months with all of the neighbors out and about, and it’s like a throwback to a bygone era, we love that.
3) Second Hand Stores & Scores Y’all know my incurable addiction for hunting down second hand treasures. Most of the furniture I find comes from thrift stores, and we have some really great ones here locally. My town is also known for its antique shops and the annual Antique Faire when the downtown streets close, and vendors from all over the Bay Area come here to sell their unique vintage finds. I
force request nicely that the hub stays home with the kiddies while I stroll and admire all the old cool stuff. For me, it’s one of the best days of the year!
