by Laura, a California native gone north to Idaho.
I'm originally from Chino, CA but am living in Rexburg, ID for school. Rexburg is teeny-tiny (about 14, 000 people, most of them being college students) so this list will be a bit different than others.
1. My college is here! BYU-Idaho.
2. The leaves turn colors in the fall.
3. Yellowstone National Park is just an hour away.
4. Little 'look' signs at all the crosswalks in town!
5. Our very own cupcake shop! This may not seem like a big deal, but we don't even have a Target here.
6. Almost everyone is my age.
7. I live with 6 girls, which basically means its always a dance party.
While it's always fun to hear about big, famous cities, it's also great to learn about little gems like Rexburg. My hometown has two Targets within a 5 minute drive of each other, so Rexburg seems like a direct contrast to what I'm used to. Yellowstone, the single cupcake shop and the buzz of a little college town all sound so wonderful. It also reminds me that there are thousands of small little towns just like this and waiting for us to find them. I can't even imagine. Thanks for sharing, Laura!
