I spent the weekend in Artesia, New Mexico.
It’s a suburb of Roswell, NM.
30 minutes outside of Roswell you will find a blue collar, refinery working group of Americans.
I shook a man’s hand he almost crushed every bone in my hand.
He’s 82 and 6’4″.
Their hands were full of callouses from pulling, turning, pushing, and working in the New Mexico sun.
The town color was Orange and it shirts down every Friday night for the high school football games.
I swear I kept waiting for Tim Riggins to round the corner.

I did not grow up in a small town.
I have not spent much time in small towns.
But I loved this town.

I’d love to hear some of your stories if you have.
What do you LOVE about small town living?
Have you ever lived in a small town?
Are you from the big city and would love to end up in a small town?
