much as my mother drives me insane, i can't imagine living far away from her. the husband and i talk about moving but...i'm not sure if we'll ever go through with it.get on the plane girl! <3
I don't want to be nosey, of course, but I live in Illinois and I went to college in a small southern town in IL as well, just curious what town?
ha, I live in small town il and you forgot to mention the swarms of mosquitos ;)
I'm from a small Illinois town and lovelovelove this photo :) Cicadas and fireflies... summertime at its best!
i grew up in Wisconsin and spent a great deal of the summer with my grandparents in Chicago...so i know what you mean!!
Mmm, I was just back in the Midwest and it was gloriously hot and humid. So nice to visit -- I felt like I was soaking up the mugginess through my skin -- and then it was refreshing to come back to the June Gloom in SoCal. =)
What a great picture!
I can feel that small town feel too. I'm from a small Georgia towm...*deep breath*
yes! i have a similar photograph. the emotion and even the scents that explode my heart with total homesickness. gets me every time. i hope you enjoy a trip "home" soon. xoxo
Mmmm, I love the sound of cicadas, and I, too, grew up in a small town. I absolutely LOVE your blog and look forward to your posts! Please keep them coming!
ah, i know those elusive yet so deep feelings for a certain Home.
i am going back home this weekend to small town indiana - cannot wait!!!!
i miss that, that sense of a different home- that place where mom once was. what a wonderful feeling, that yearning, and that a single photo can evoke so much emotion in a person...
that's a good picture
reading your post from a small illinois town... listening, of course, to the cicada symphony. & right now, nope, i wouldn't trade it :)
this is so beautiful, my friend. ... yes to home.
