I live in a suburb of Oklahoma City. A suburb I didn't even know existed until I met my husband. I grew up in a small town about an hour south of OKC. I spent my teen years living in Norman. It is a major college town. I always thought I wanted to live in a big city, until we moved to Houston right after my husband graduated college. Then, I couldn't wait to get home to my little big city.
We have lived in our house since Feb 2000. I love my house. It has a very cabin feel too it. I have a 25 ft vaulted ceiling in the living room with a dual fireplace that heats both the kitchen and living room. My front entry is a rock floor. I wish my house were just a tiny bit bigger, but then I would have to clean more. I definitely wish my kitchen were bigger or arranged differently. I think that will be our next major home renovation. We recently redid one of our living room walls. It is actually a wall of windows. I need to post on it, because I love my new windows.
My neighborhood is great. When we moved here, most of my neighbors were elderly retired people. Slowly they have been replaced with people around our age. Finally after 11 long years, there are kids my daughter's age on our block. All of them moved here within 3 months. Unfortunately, they are all boys...oh well. My neighbors are the best neighbors. He is a retired policeman. She plants flowers for me in the spring. We put up their Christmas lights, so its a really good trade off. I have borrowed a loaf of bread from her once (and brought her a new loaf the next day).
There are some things I wish I could change about my location, but for the most part; I love it.
