Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived on a farm in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
She got to play in the creek and run around the pasture with cows.
When she was well-behaved, she was allowed to swing in her tire swing in the front yard.
She wore a lot of overalls.
Her pool was not very fancy.
Also, her mom coordinated her hair barrettes with her clothes/bathing suits. LOL
Her first pet?
Yup. A cow.
Not many people end up eating their first pet for dinner, but that's how it goes when you live on a farm.
After leaving North Carolina when I was about 4, we moved to Kentucky...
Whereas I played with farm animals in North Carolina, I found other ways to amuse myself in Kentucky.
I played in the snow with my little sister.
And went camping and shooting guns with my dad.
Not many kids can say that they are familiar with glock magazines, but...well, as I titled this post - we are a bit of redneck family!
My dad got out of the Army when I was in the first grade, and that is when we moved back to Miami.
So...if you hear me call myself a Southerner, and are confused because HELLO, living in Miami doesn't really count as "The South," now you'll know why.
I may be quite the big city girl now, but I didn't start out that way!
