Pretty Places: My Hometown

Pretty Places: My Hometown

I don’t know if I have ever put it out there but I am not exactly a fan of where I’m from. I was born and raised in Lancaster County. This past weekend I took a visit home with one of my friends. She is from Maryland so I decided to show her around the touristy town of Intercourse. Yes, that is a town name and it is where a lot of the Amish live. To be honest I have no idea why on earth anyone would want to name a town Intercourse but that’s Pennsylvania for you.
Even though I don’t like it where I live, I have to admit is a very beautiful place. The farm land, hills, changing colors in the trees, and sheer beauty of the land itself is actually amazing. Sometimes I lose myself in the beauty. I don’t really know what else to say, but if you guys have any questions on the Amish or Mennonites that occupy my area I will try my best to answer them. Thanks for reading and I hope you guys are doing well! Feel free to follow me on twitter and instagram @mrmilligan13
XOXO

    I have respect for the Amish and Mennonites. I live in the Midwest. I’ve seen them come to an area devastated by a tornado and help rebuild homes.

      Yeah they probably actually live out there. I know the ones near where I am from tend to have a lot of construction companies and businesses where they do a lot of work in nearby cities.

    I live about two hours from Lancaster County and love visiting there. We go as often as we can often staying at Mennonite or other homes from the Mennonite Your Way directory.

      Wow! That’s so cool, I had no idea you could stay with them! I’m sure that’s really interesting.

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
