Living in Jackson...

Living in the small town on Jackson has been absolutely amazing.I love the fact that we can literally walk everywhere. There's cute and yummy eateries around every corner. The bagel shop above has the most delicious, fresh made bagels. You know it's good when the place is even busy at dinner time. Here I am enjoying some coffee with my onion bagel. I also love all the natural beauty around every corner. My husband took this picture on his iphone- seriously no enhancements- nothing.There's also tons of wildlife. I'd never seen a bald eagle until we came here- and now I see them all the time.The town square here is everything you could want and more- and in a wilderness setting. There's fancy, hip restaurants, Anthro like shops, and tons of galleries. There's also a lot of activity in the town square on weekends. I took these pictures at Elk Fest- An annual fundraiser put on by the boy scouts who auction off naturally shed elk antlers for (lots and lots of) money.Jackson is also incredibly close to Grand Teton National Park...and Yellowstone National Park.Bison of course are everywhere...But since it's Spring- so are their cute babies.
I LOVE living in this new town. The people are kind, the air is clean, and I get more natural exercise than I ever did living back home. I only see good things on the horizon.
