This Delaware City Named One Of The Happiest Towns In America
I absolutely love living in the First State and one Delaware city has been named one of the happiest towns in America.
Growing up in Florida, all I ever wanted to do was live in a place with all four seasons. Since I’ve moved here to Wilmington, I feel like I’m happier than I ever have been. I love watching the fall leaves change. The possibility of a White Christmas, or snow at all, gives me so much excitement. When summer rolls around, we’ve got plenty of gorgeous beaches to enjoy and the colors of the flowers in the spring time are my absolute favorite.
