I don't even need to give an opening statement, let's just cut right to the chase, shall we?

Space.

Cost of living.

These two things are the most coveted reasons that people move to a new place. Everyone wants space and doesn't want to feel like they are being lived on top of or like they can't breath. And cost of living is a big deal. No one wants to live paycheck to paycheck or just work to be able to live. Everyone wants to be able to buy a home and put nice things in it. To go on vacation and have time off with their families. This can be a hard thing for people who live in places where it is very expensive.

We moved here from Seattle for those very two reasons. We could have never bought a house in our desired area or had kids or any of that because everything was so expensive. That is why family and life dynamic in big cities is very different than places like Billings. It's because people can't afford to have kids until their 40! And I personally don't want to be that old when I have kids!

Now, with that said. These are two things that Billings has that we love. But I do realize if everyone moved here then we wouldn't have space and the cost of living goes up. I guess it's a catch 22 both ways! But for now, I think Billings is a gem that not a lot of people know about... let's keep it that way!
