Sentimental Saturday

So I got a fun but busy day ahead of me folks! For a change, Nicky poo is off this weekend and we're going to be heading to the gym and then to my Aunt's house to celebrate my cousin's graduation party. Then it's off to my mom and dads house to do a little catching up.

There is something about going home to where you grew up that centers everything in your life. I grew up on 5 acres in "the sticks" as we called it when we were little, and when I was a teenager and couldn't drive, I didn't appreciate it. Living on 5 acres is so much different than being in the 'burbs. I grew up with horses, chickens, ducks, 5 dogs, cats, goats, pigs, geese, and sometimes turkey's and peasants. When I take the drive on those whindy country roads, things and life seem so much simpliar.

If my post had a theme song it'd be Miranda Lamberts "The House that Built me". Every time I hear it, I relate and I get that ball in my throat that makes me want to tear up, especially the line about her dog under the oak tree since Lord knows I have plenty of my favorite dogs burried old oak trees.
