I saw this meme at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom and it looked soooo cool I just had to try and play along and tell you all where I am from…

I am from a small New England town where change happens slowly and family is all around.

I am from kitchens with cookies always baking, coffee or tea always brewing, and a second helping is assumed.

I am from a place where family and friendship have always gone hand in hand, side by side, almost indistinguishable from one another.

I am from a land of cousins and cousins’ cousins. A place where everyone is family even when they’re not.

I am from a world where grandmother’s never seem to age, time stands still but rushes by with new faces and old.

I am from a place with nature in ever nook and cranny of our lives. Reservoirs and leafy trees standing majestic all around me.

I am from a family filled with laughter and personality. Filled to the brim with love and adoration for one another, always lending a helping hand, always at the ready to celebrate life’s bigger moments, and smaller ones, too.

I am from a kitten’s kisses, a purr always nearby, waiting too be fed, loved and then forgotten when she’s ready to hide. A world that understands a cat’s never ending love, that never needs to be defined or acknowledged. Whether perching for her closeup, or hiding behind a cushion, it’s love is always there.

I am from a place where cameras are always clicking – and camera shy people are better left behind.

I am from a land of love and a place where childhood is cherished and adored. Where grandmothers are the law and grandchildren are everything. Where playtime is the best time and a hug and a kiss is always nearby.

Where are you from?

    Beautiful beyond words. May your children and grandchildren say the same. And may those of us who only dream of belonging to such a place create and give such to our children and future generations. You are blessed! Thank you for passing on your blessing.
