Share the Joy: My Home Town

It gives me enormous JOY to live where I do.

My little town was named #5 in the list of
Smithsonian's Best Small Towns in America

 and I understand why.

What gives you JOY this week?

To play along
1. do a post that tells and shows what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post and paste it into 
the Mr. Linky box along with your info.

3. Then click the NEXT box (or the time) to choose an image
 from the post to insert in Mr. Linky's list
 so people get a sneak peek. 

(And if you just can't get it to work, 
email me and I'll try to link it for you.)

4. Visit other players and let their joy infect you.
Leave them a comment because everyone
 enJOYS getting positive feedback.

Let's start an epidemic of JOY!

Yes, indeed, your town has so much to offer....I love to armchair travel, and I have seen and read alot about your area....sounds wonderful! One question, though - don't you have quite a bit of rainy/gloomy weather? Well, at least you don't get tons of snow....

you do live in a very beautiful place. i think the whole northwest is the best place to live. even driving to work i see mt hood in my rear view mirror, or sitting in traffic on the I5 bridge looking east to the columbia river.

I would love to take that list and then hit the road. I think it would be a long time before I made it home again.
