10 days until I’m home in my little state. Being away from home for college for about a year now has made me realize how much I have taken from growing up in a small state. Little New Hampshire. It is a shock to me the way people look at me and question me why I’m from such a small place, and what the heck do I do there for fun.  And it’s hard to explain why growing up in a Town that has more farm animals then people, one traffic light, and no Starbucks is any fun. But it is. The people you meet become your family. You have neighbors who are “townies” and can tell you stories and history of the town in more detail then any website can tell you.  I would have never wanted to grown up any place else. It’s home. My whole small town is my home.
