I grew up in a small Kentucky town on the river; the only time I have received a speeding ticket…my Dad knew about it before I got home. Our neighbors were barns and corn fields and I’m so happy I had that childhood! It has actually been eight years since I’ve lived there, but I think about where I grew up everyday. I love the opportunities living in a large metro area, but I definitely miss the simplicity.
We spend our whole week in downtown Atlanta, our evenings and weekends in the suburbs, and here lately we’ve started taking a Sunday drive to relax and spend quality time together. Now I’m like: why did it take us the whole three years living in Atlanta to do this?!
I love these little places that remind me of home and I’m grateful we can have a little bit of everything if we are willing to drive for it. We have parents spread out over three states and we have the opportunity to see a lot of the country because of it, but my favorite places are usually very green, quiet, and away from people.
