Moving doesn't have to be a hassle.

Guest blog post from Leslie Jenkins

I've just moved from the country to a large city and talk about culture shock! From living where you can really still leave your doors unlocked to where one of the first calls you make is to your home security provider to ask “Why ADT? “, well, suffice to say it's been quite a change. One thing I was missing that I never even considered before the move was not having my favorite produce stand right down the road.

Then last week I discovered a wonderful thing. The farmers market! It was like my homey little stand multiplied by one hundred. I loved it. Although I had planned ahead and checked out the school systems, investigated the public transit system and lots of other things, I am finding there is still a lot for me to learn about city life.

For one thing, it's the oddest thing but evidently city folk don't automatically wave at everyone who drives down the road. In fact lots of times the cashier at the grocery store doesn't make small talk when I'm in line. You know what though? I'll get used to all that. The availability of all the things a big city has to offer makes it all worthwhile. If I'm on my way to a symphony or a play, I don't have time to be waving at everybody anyway.
