Our Little Town

Though our mailing address is Decatur, Alabama we actually live in the little town of Priceville. When we moved to Decatur 23 years ago, Priceville was basically the exit off Interstate I 65. Several eating places, gas stations,a grocery store and a few churches claimed Priceville as their home. Fast forward and today Priceville is one of the fastest growing areas in Alabama. I really love living in Priceville. Kendall and Landon attend Priceville Elementary School and I so enjoy the short ride through the country roads to pick them up at the end of the school day. It is hard to believe that five minutes off the busy interstate and you are out in the country but it is true.

Here in our own townhouse community, The Glens at Burningtree, houses continue to go up as Baby Boomers are ready for a smaller home and no yard work!!

This is the Priceville Town Hall. Just behind the building is I 65 that runs through Alabama. Since Marvin works in Huntsville, it is so convenient to hop on the Interstate and get to work. And of course we often hop on 65 and head south to see our grandbabies in Birmingham.

This is the road to the children's school. Seasonal crops are planted in the fields. And high on the hill is a pretty red and white checkered water tower that glows in the afternoon sun.

Cows graze in some of the pastures that we drive by.

I love this little rock church that has stood the test of time.  With the growth in the area, the churches have grown too, adding square footage for all the extra worshippers.

Another pretty scene....

And the corn is getting ready to be harvested! I wonder if this corn will be used to make ethanol?

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the scenes of Priceville. The photos were taken from my car so they are not the best but it gives you an idea of what it might be like to live in rural Alabama.

It's fun to get to see what you see when you are out and about. I love small town living and seeing the crops grow. The corn looks ready in here in NC, too! Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!
