    When you started this series, I thought about who or what I would send my love letter to. It would have to be the place that holds my heart, my dear homeland, North Carolina. Thanks Lara for the words that all North Carolinians can utter to our beloved state.

    Oh my stars, I love North Carolina. Born and raised here, I spent a short year in NYC, only to head back home to my cozy, perfect, home state. No matter where the future takes me, I’ll always feel a sense of comfort when I see our state flag and that lovely cardinal.

    What I love about the south is the general care people have for each other. I was born in NY, then moved to oklahoma (boomer!!!) then Louisiana, then California. My family currently lives in California but when choosing a college I picked the University of Oklahoma….and boy am I glad that I did! Oklahoma brought me awesome friends, sweet memories, and meeting my soon to be husband Beau (: Once I got engaged and graduated my fiance and I had to decide where we wanted to live, and we ended up choosing California. That being said, it has made me realize how truly special Oklahoma was to me. I think it says a lot when something is so tough to leave. My memories and friendships made are so special to me and who knows!…maybe I’ll end up there again someday. The south is a different pace of life that isn’t found everywhere.

    anyways, the south is a sweet place to me. California girl but Oklahoma has my heart.

    […] Through your glistening winters, blossoming springs, colorful falls and hot southern summers full of…. Thus, moving away from you, my forever home, was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I often find myself impatiently counting down the days until I can return home to the place and people that I love. I crave to hug their necks, and tell them all my stories, to hold them one last time and never let go; never having to return back to my house 1,250 miles away. While some days are better than others, that feeling of being homesick never really goes away. People often argue with me that it is the people I miss and not the place, but I have to say that is the farthest from the truth. While I miss my family dearly, I often times long to be in the state of southern hospitality, front porches that stretch from the mountains to the sea in all of its beauty, and having the whole world at my fingertips. I’m just a North Carolina girl living in a Texas high school coaches world. […]
