#ilovebellowsfalls

I love this scrappy town.  I love the grit and the train tracks and the grand victorian homes with their turrets and stained glass.  I love the way the village is sandwiched between Fall Mountain, the Connecticut River and Route 5.  I love how the geography of this place does not allow for sprawl. I love how the village teems with church bells and town bells and spires and a clock tower.  I have never lived in a place with so much texture. I love the layers and the bridges and the tunnels and the slate roofs.  I love that we have a bookstore and an arcade that my son can walk to on his own.  I love that we have a movie theater that shows classic movies on Wednesdays and a restaurant where one can get an amaro.  I love to get a flat white at the local coffee shop that sits in what is possibly the most charming building in a village chockablock with charming buildings. #ilovebellowsfalls Thank you Bellows Falls for bring so damn cool.
