“Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world…”

I am a 40 year old woman who decided at 25 that I wanted to get out of the very small town in the Midwest where I was born and raised in order to find my greener pastures, which at that time meant finding a husband, getting married and having kids. What I wouldn’t tell 25 year old me if given the chance!

Fifteen years later I am a single Mom of three beautiful, kind and loving boys ages 11, 9 and 7 with whom I spent 10 years at home, loving and hating every single moment. Being a woman is tough. Being a Mom, tougher. Being a single Mom 1,100 miles from everyone and everything that you love, toughest!

I am strong, independent, confident, trusting. loving and passionate. I have a happy fulfilling life, yet I have spent the past 9 years longing for the chance to move back home. My greatest hope is that one day the universe will see fit to find a way to get me back to my small town in the Midwest in order that my address will once again match my heart.

Until that time I just keep skipping, or maybe more accurately, tripping along through life because giving up is not on my radar!

  1. Wow!!! I do admire you a lot… I just starting following you in twitter and I must say I got the uppermost respect for you… Also, you’re one hot woman… Must say that too…

      • I grew up in a small town, very similar to yours, in fact just a few miles away from you. Small town life is comforting, and yet, like you I longed to get away. Going back home for a few days to see family and friends is special, but being able to come back to what is now home, to see newer family and friends is just as special. Finding friends that don’t have any reason to judge you is nearly impossible, even having family members that don’t judge you is nearly impossible, just know that those that are closest to you, even if you don’t see them, or talk to them for years, don’t judge you, they simply love you for you.

  2. I know. That’s what made me look for you. I miss the old days. hard to believe they are 25+ years ago. BTW, love your FB pictures πŸ˜‰
