Small Town Love Stories

Hey listeners, in honor of the Valentine’s Day holiday, I asked on Instagram for your submissions of small-town love stories. 

Now, I know what you’re thinking…stories of making out under the high school football field bleachers, or prom king and queen, etc. etc.

Nope! Not today!

For these small town love stories, I just asked to hear what YOU loved about YOUR TOWN. It could be the flower planters that line main street in the summer. Or maybe the way your community rallies when others need help to host fundraisers and meal trains. Or maybe it’s the just those wistful, Americana summer memories of riding your bike to the library. 

Those are the stories we’re here for today.

I’m going to do my best to share all of your responses because you SHOWED UP with your submissions, listeners!

Get ready to smile and get the warm fuzzies because these small town love stories are special.  

People used to look at me weird when I did things like this on Main Street Cascade, but they’re kind of used to it now.

Sweet Takeaways: 

  • When you’re a small town florist and someone doesn’t know the address, you call the propane guy because he knows where everyone lives…and he even offers to make your delivery for you!
  • One small town has a “veteran of the month.” The newspaper highlights their story, they get merchandise from local businesses, and while that is cool, I think it’s AMAZING they’re acknowledging these small town folks that have sacrificed so much!
  • You never know what’s going to make the newspaper headlines, like this submission from a friend in Nebraska: “hit a deer on the way to a community meeting and had to attend virtually”…You’ve officially hit your fifteen minutes of fame as next week’s headline!
  • The energy and excitement in small towns makes small events a big deal! From the junk lady to the coffee camper, people run for it!
  • Small town people LOVE to support small town businesses! 
  • When tragedy hits, you find a support system you don’t always get in larger communities. It’s times like these when “everybody knows everybody’s business” is really something powerful and unifying.

Small town people are the best and you won’t find anyone better, I hope you enjoy as I dig into these stories and feelings of small town America!
