    What do you love about where you live?

    This can be about your home, your city, state or even the country.

    The first thing I love about where I live is the lake, we live right next to a lake. It is beautiful. Then I love my back porch. I could sit out there for hours. We have wild life come into our yard all year long from the woods. A doe comes each year with her twins, Turkeys are a common friend. It is so peaceful.

    Hello, I live in Ohio, there is nothing to love in Ohio, however I do enjoy working in my garden when the weather permits.

    I love the fact that we have a home on an acre in the country, and pay less for our mortgage than we paid for our monthly rent in California! We have bear, deer, and wild turkey on a regular basis and fireflies in the summer. Clear days and scarlet leaves in the fall. A riot of flowers in the Spring. My kids have top-notch schools to attend, creeks to play in, woods to explore, and healthy air to breathe.

    I live in the countryside and near to the coast in the UK. Having grown up in a suburb of London, it is wonderful to be surrounded by fields and nature!

    I live in a small town so I love the quiet.  There are rarely sirens.  The night feels like night because the noise level is minimal.  And I love that I can walk everywhere. Almost anyway!

    I love my home because it is small, has one way in, plenty of space, calming colors, tile and carpet. I adore where I live, the city, because everything is nearby. I don't need to drive 30-45 minutes away to anything, only if I want to and not because I need to. I like living in the state of Texas because of the beauty, strength, history, and variety of the land and weather. Just don't go to the beach here and your fine.

    I live in Portland, Oregon. It is so nice to have a forest so close, a 10 mile scenic trail, green living, and city life when you want it. We have a river going through so there is a nice waterfront, and just an hour or two away are beaches, and hundreds of scenic locations.

    Its a nice mix of green and city so you can choose whichever you want to do that day.

    I love waking up to all the bright colors I have in my quiet house.  I put a lot of earthy decorations in my home like fake trees, artificial flowers and roses around my windows.  Most of all I love my laptop in my house.

    Where I live now is a tiny town. Away from most of the crazy that a city can offer. But still close enough that I can shop if the mood strikes. me. Another thing I love is that people are friendly and speak and seem to care about each other.

    When I go to the local stores, they know me and make me feel welcome. It is a great little town to live in.

    I love our wood redwood ceiling, Wisconsin stone fireplace and our neighborhood. We have the bike path right in front of our home and the community is wonderful.

    I have lived allot of wonderful places in the world but I must tell you my neighbors here are simply the salt of the earth. I have never felt so safe.

    We purchased our home about a year ago and I truly love every room.

    The photo below is a magazine photo that our home was designed after. It was built in 1930 and the additions which were added in 1956 were done in a Prairie Style that I find very comfortable - a casual elegance that I truly love.

    I love that I live in a city where we are surrounded by water and can go to the beach when we want.  Though this is true, it is also easy to find farmland and downtown areas as well.  As for our home, it's small, but I love the fact that we have lived in it since our oldest child was 2 and all 3 of our children have grown up in it.  We know our neighbors and live very near the kids' school, our church, and many other things we need.  If we are blessed to be able to stay long term, our kids will be able to come home to their childhood home, which doesn't happen often these days.

    I too love where I live. The climate allows me to drive in a beach buggy year-round. I have fresh fruit from our trees, eggs from our chickens and fish from the lakes. We eat all of our meals outside and BBQ a couple l times a week.

    I love my afternoons in the hammock, just dreaming. The wildlife here includes 80+ different types of birds, lizards, snakes, and new insects which I am still discovering after almost 3 years here. When you slow down and take a look, the world is a fascinating place.

    I neglected to mention, the photo I used, is courtesy of Renjith Krishnan.

    Freedom, clean and empty beaches, unspoiled native bush and smiles of people around me...sunshine nearly every day:)
    I have travelled around Europe, Asia and part of Africa for many years and yearned for a quiet uncrowded place where one can gather their thoughts and just dream...I have found it, finally or the place found me:)

    I live in the Biobio Region of South-Central Chile, and I do love this Region, even though it is rather crazy, with lots of strange quirks, like all things in Latin America. I think what really fascinates me is the enormous challenge posed by the efforts to get the Region up and running in a global society. It's really a smallish country within a country, and the potential is enormous. The capital of the Region, Concepcion, is the second largest urban center after the national capital at Santiago. There is just about everything here, lakes, rivers, ocean, ports, fishing, mining, forestry, industries, universities, intensive construction programs, etc.

    I love the freedom and the love which surrounds my home. We have been living here for ages. It's a town with 18 villages in the coastal area of Sri Lanka. Just 5 minutes walk to the beach. I love the sound of the ocean and the salty breeze. I can see the far away ships which are lit in the night from my balcony. It's a wonderful sight. More than anything, my friends and family are here, so it's awesome and it's a great blessing.

    I live in a small apartment that has a front door that opens up directly into a park, with a gorgeous walking trail. It's great for walking my dogs year round, and its nice to face the park instead of the street.

    I love the sunshine of South Florida and the ocean. I do miss my midwest early spring and fall though.

    Hello Blond Logic,

    What I love about where I live is that it feels like being on holiday. I live in a triangular wooden house in the woods. There is no noise from cars, neighbours, or anything. All I can hear are the birds chirping away.

    When I look out of my window I see nature, squirrels running around, pheasants, hedgehogs and cats. When I step outside I step onto real ground, not concrete.

    When the wind is strong, my partner and I snuggle up in bed upstairs and we listen to the rain falling.

    The front of my house is one big glass front so it feels as if you are part of the beauty outside.

    Across the field is the water reservoir. Sometimes they have boat races and you can see hundreds of little white sails scattered over the water.

    At night there is no light from any towns, so you can see all of the stars and the planets. We also do not have any crime so I can feel safe.

    When the sun goes down, it shines through the trees with a juicy red glow, saying good night just before she disappears.

    I love my home. Your 'Team Leader'
