My Man and I went on a date a few days ago. His schedule as a physician can have long hours, and many times our dates are us sitting in our recliners watching a movie and eventually falling asleep (I’m not kidding!). Well, it’s been about 6 months since our last move and we decided to get out and learn more about our new area. We went to Station Park in Farmington, Utah just to see what we could see. Station Park is basically an outdoor mall in Davis county, near Lagoon. I’m tired of being “new in town” but it really takes time and effort to get to know your neighbors, your schools, the best roads to take, and what stores are out there. So here’s what we discovered the other night (and be sure to enter to win the $300+ prize package from Station Park’s amazing businesses below! )
First off, Station Park is simply lovely. Lights everywhere, fountains, outdoor fireplaces and just a feeling of relaxation.
1. Make time to go out and try new things in your area. At least once a month I try to visit a different store or event in my area. Check the local news, website, or newspaper to learn about your new community.
2. Try different routes. Take a different road to work. Look at map. Ask Siri. Go drive around just for fun. You may find a beautiful country road or an easier way to get somewhere.
3. Talk to people. This one can be so hard for me. I am really quite shy, but I’m learning to ask neighbors and new friends about places, community happenings, or stores to try. I’ll also ask store clerks questions or anyone willing to help me discover my new city. It’s also a great way to make friends and feel “in the loop”.
