Which brings me to…REASONS this city girl would seriously consider moving to a small town once she’s ready to settle down….and all because of Gilmore Girls and they place they call home; Stars Hollow.
1. Luke’s Diner
Lorelai and Rory make me secretly wish I had an addiction to coffee, but decaf tea is more my speed, Michelle and caffeine…no Bueno.
2. Miss Patty’s Dance School
Oh Miss Patty what a firecracker! Let’s just say she’s known for her less than subtle ways. (oh and she and Babette, can’t keep a secret, it’s a small town…no one can!) 😉3. Doose’s Market
4. Soda Shoppe
Taylor Doose runs both…Taylor Taylor what an annoyingly bubbly man. HAHA
5. The Inns; The Dragonfly Inn & The Independence Inn
I want to stay a night and take a ride in the horse and carriage then have a fancy chef Sookie breakfast the next morning.
6. Weston’s Bakery– owned by Fran Weston
7. Kim’s Antiques
“You break it you buy it.”

Where the town would all agree or disagree on what they wanted for their town…where your opinion matters!

19. Easter Egg Hunt
Oh kirk way to stink up the town, because you forgot where you hid them!
20. Babette’s Cat Cinnamon’s wake
Yes this town held a wake for a CAT! And the whole town showed up to pay their respects, even Lorelei cancelled a desk with Max Medina! That’s how close they all are.
I love the kooky town of Stars Hollow, I love how they celebrate anything. I love their unique festival ideas. I love the quaint homey feeling of the town. I love the small shops and stores. I love that it’s not overpopulated or a stressed out city life. I want to grab a coffee and a muffin at Luke’s. I want to take a walk in the town’s square and say hi to all my neighbors and know them by name. I want to sit in the Gazebo. I want to stay the weekend in one of their sweet little inns and eat a fabulous meal cooked by the famous Sookie St. James. I want to hunt fun antiques, and be besties with Lorelei and Rory. I want to live in Stars Hollow! That’d be my dream home location. But no matter how far I go, I’ll always be a Brooklyn girl at heart. And my accent is coming with me!
So…would you live in Stars Hollow? Who would you want to hang out with?
