Just a Small Town Girl…living in an Urban World

Country Roads, take me home. To the place, I belong.


Gosh I love the small town girl in me. I ache when I drive around home in Chautauqua County. Ache to have a life to share with a someone and a family that reminds me of the one I had growing up…the skinned knee, callous barefoot, pigtail wearing, daffodil picking, sunshine freckle faced, salamander catching, all day bike riding, electric blue slushie stained tongue childhood.

Of course, time changes locks on a lot of doors…

While driving around Amish Country (where my mom lives) I asked if we could stop somewhere to get water at the next place we find. 10-15 minutes later we arrive at a Shur-Fine.  City Life has spoiled me. Thirsty, now!

Oh the places I can WALK TO in just 10 little minutes in the City.

Country Roads

Of course, oh the places I could walk to in just 10 minutes…

Ying. Yang.

Maybe someday? Maybe not.
