Today I went to see my mom and sisters (and pick up Noah bear because he spent the night with them-can't forget little guy lol). Well my mom still lives in the town where I grew up and I am super sappy these days [stupid pregnancy hormones] and I found myself just remembering some really good times in my hometown. I really took a walk down memory lane today.
Brian picks on my little hometown and calls it redneck town or hickville (he's not really one to talk..he grew up in a small country town too), and I thought the same thing until I moved away lol. I wanted nothing more than to get out of that little town. But now I love that little town. It's part of who I am now. I miss the Friday night football games, the riding around in the parking lot at the high school, the little fiasco's my friends and I would have...including going mud bogging in the dark and stealing little "for sale" or "yard sale" road signs! (terrible I know!)
This is the town that I experienced my first heartbreak, lost my virginity, and made some of the best friends I ever had. It's where I grew up...literally and figuratively. It may be a little hick town but it is the town that made me.
Reminds me of this song by Miranda Lambert....
Do you have any hometown memories? I'd love to hear them!
