My Favorite Thing About Living in the City

We've only lived in the City for 8 months but we love living here even more than we imagined we would. Exploring the sights, enjoying the views, eating amazing food. But my most favorite thing is that we live in a city that people want to see. That means that we get to see them and most of the time, we get to have them stay with us for a night or two or three. I love having friends and family come and visit. I love that they can stay with us. I love taking them to the typical tourist destinations as well as our favorite hidden gems. I love taking them to my favorite restaurants and discovering new ones. But most of all, I just love being with them and I love that the city we are in attracts them to come for a while.

This is my sister-in-law Ginger and her daughter C. We were at Levi Plaza Park. They were here just for a night and 1/2 a day in April. And as I mentioned a couple of days ago, Jimmy's cousin was here for the weekend and this coming weekend, my cousin is coming! I think we've averaged at least one overnight guest every month since we've been here. I feel blessed that I get to see the people I love the most and that this city is bringing them to us.

I know what you mean, Mad. Make your city a country that people want to see. :) In August we will have our first guests from the States. That will be fun. :)
