Comments are more than welcome on this series. I've been toying with the idea of writing about some of my experiences at the store for years now. I wanted to keep this kind of light and funny, but have a style something similar to Little House on the Prairie with a bit of Mark Twain thrown in for good measure. Ambitious, I know. So, please feel free to give me some pointers.

This post is Part 1 of a writing series titled My Little Country Store.

So, one day, two people met in New York City. Three months after their first

date, they got married. Not being much for city life, they decided to pack up the

cat (and various other essentials) and move to a little town in the middle of


nowhere, otherwise known as the state of Maine. There they bought a lovely

little country store. Several years later, an adorable, lovely baby girl came into

their lives. Lucky them. That adorable, lovely baby girl was of course, me. So

there I was, a lovely little baby girl in a lovely little country store. And that's

where I've been ever since. Some people think it's horrible that at nineteen I'm

still living at home and working at the family business, and others think it's great.


As for myself, I've always found life at the store to be anything but dull. How

could anyone be bored with so many people around and so much going on all at

once? Over the years I've had some interesting experiences. Some were just

plain strange, others, scary. Some were exciting and some were annoying. But all

of the memories that came from being here at the store for nineteen years won't

soon be forgotten. Some are even worth sharing. So here's my attempt at

describing my wonderful experiences at My Little Country Store.

oooh...I'm looking forward to more of this. But...

could you remove the extra line breaks, so it doesn't read double-spaced?
