15 Day Blogger Challenge - Day 2

15 Day Blogger Challenge - Getting to Know the Blogger

Day 2 - Where did you grow up? Small town or Big City?

When I was younger I lived in Hornbeck, LA. Have you ever heard of it? (I doubt it) It's very, very small. There is only one caution light there and if you blink you pass right through the whole town and you wouldn't even know it. There is one school that houses pre-k thru 12th grade, maybe 2 gas stations and about 60!

My father's family lives there and most of my memories from then included me rolling around with my mawmaw. I'm pretty sure I was her favorite but don't tell anyone. Here's a newspaper clipping my cousin shared with me on Facebook. My mawmaw had this done and you can even see what she wrote on it. Told you I was her favorite!

Me and my stylish vest

She was always doing things like this and believe she even put me in the newspaper for drawing a stick figure at one time. lol We lived in the very, very small town of Hornbeck till I was 9 then we moved to Jacksonville, FL where my life changed drastically. It was a huge culture shock for a small town gal like myself. I eventually moved back to Louisiana when I was 21. They say you always end up coming home. Louisiana is my home!

This is a picture of my mom and dad and my two older sisters. I'm of course, the adorable baby that seems to laughing at absolutely nothing. ;) I still do that to this day. lol
