The difference between growing up in LA and Denver:

Why does your cousin leave her garage door open all of the time, I asked Logan yesterday. "She likes people to walk in that way. I'm not even sure she remembers that she has a front door, was his response.

When I asked her why, she basically said the same thing. She also said half the time she doesn't close it at night. She doesn't lock her doors either.

Later on in the afternoon, as we got home, Logan started laughing. When I asked him what he was laughing at, he said me. Not only did I close the garage door before I even turned off the car, but I locked the car after I got the baby out.

I am a city girl, what can I say? It's who I am. I was trained from a little girl too be street smart. Now I live in one of the safest neighborhoods in the mid-west. But I'm still a city girl.

My husband grew up in a very, VERY small town where there was no such thing as a locked door. We live in a big city now and even though he tries to remember to lock down the car, house, etc., he more often than not, forgets. Call me a pessimist, but I keep telling him, it's only a matter of time...

That is too funny!

I am a New Englander at heart- I discovered it even more when we tried to move away. I don't think I could live in a big city- although I do love to visit them, and I would one day like to see L.A... Sorry I just totally lost my train of thought and I have no idea where I was going with that. haha!

Hope you had a great weekend!

We live in a super safe suburb, too, but I'd NEVER leave my garage door open or my car unlocked at night!

I don't think locking doors is a bad thing... don't get out of the habit and just feel good about knowing it probably isn't necessary!

That's so funny :) But safe!

I'm terrible at locking things.

I lock everything. I hear you girl. I freak if I find a door unlocked because I'm sure the intruder is now hiding in our house, waiting. It's not healthy!

You take the girl out of the city, but not the city out of the girl!

I grew up more in the country, but my mom is a worrywart so we always locked everything anyway. Maybe because SHE grew up in a city!
