Home Sick

Today, I'm really missing home.  My brother called the other day and we talked for a while.  My mom told me that when we got off the phone, he was a little sad and told her he missed me being their to talk to and do stuff with.  
Fall is on its way and that is one of my favorite times of year.  Sure summer rocks because of water and cute clothes, but fall is the precursor to the holiday season and other things I look forward to.  This year I will miss Gamecock football and tailgating, the state fair, watching my favorite shows with friends and decorating for the holidays with family.  
Don't get me wrong...I'm thankful for the opportunity to experience new things here is Alabama.  For one, in October, Dothan holds the worlds largest Peanut Festival and this year I finally have a home big enough to hold a real Christmas tree.  I like the friends we've made here but haven't lost the ones I left behind and I miss them. 
The older I get the more I realize that friends and family matter so much more than time or money.  I hope they all know how much I love and miss them.

  1. This makes me miss you - I wish you were going to be here for football but that just means I'll HAVE to plan a trip down there before the end of the year (hopefully oct!)
