What I loved about growing up in small town USA

Growing up in a small town grows character. Besides my thick accent when you talk to me, my manners and personality always shine through.

My small town is such a charismatic little place to live. You have so many different characters that live there that make it truly unique. We are made up of farmers, business owners and homemakers. I lived in a town where your grandparents knew everything you did or what you said before you could even own up to it. Gossip travels fast in the south. Every Sunday, the church pews are filled, and in the fall, every Friday night, the football stands are packed. During the spring and summer, baseball and softball fields are over flowing with parents pushing their kids to greatness. In the south, God and sports are always first.

Being from the south makes you a little comfortable sometimes; it’s so hard to get away. The things I miss the most are walking almost everywhere I go, knowing everyone and their mama in Wal-Mart, and a good gossip session at the local store. Growing up in small town USA helped me become the down-to-earth person I am today, and for that I am truly proud.

  1. I also came from a small town and there’s nothing like it. Although I have already moved to the city but there’s really something in it that draws me back! 👍🏼
