I really enjoy Jefferson City.
Surrounded by beautiful country, the city seems to have the perfect mixture of old-fashioned beauty and modern convenience.
I especially enjoy living only two miles from the Capital; Dalton often drops me off on his way to work. I walk along the library, pass shops and eventually through the Capital building. It is always open for touring.
The Governor’s Mansion is truly beautiful. Behind it hides a Greek-themed garden planted years ago by the Governor’s wife and several working prisoners. In the spring dog-wood blossoms and tulips greet everyone who pass by while several fountains have children (and adults) smiling.
When I wrote this two weeks ago the the city was cold and laden with small snowy piles.
On my latest walk I discovered a little museum tucked along the street; maybe our next date day can take us here. Our favorite pizza place isn’t very far away … 😉
Behind me are several railroad tracks and, even further, the Missouri River.
One day I plan to write a post about falling in love with a new city; sometimes it can be challenging adapting to a new home. Thankfully, the capital of Missouri seemed to have no trouble winning my heart and making me feel at home. 🙂
Do you enjoy where you are living? Is it more country or city? Did you ever have a difficult move? I would love to hear your stories.
With love and blessings,
