Love Where You Live

I was born in Mountain Home, Idaho....
but that is not where I grew up.
I don't even remember Idaho.
When I was 3 1/2 my parents divorced.
My mom, brother & I headed to Lima, Ohio where my grandparents lived.

I grew up in Lima.
And no it's nothing like Glee portrays it to be.
It's an odd town.
It's not tiny, but come guys, there isn't even a Target
{first world problems right there}
I went to the same school all my life.
Which I am thankful for.
Go Bulldogs!!!!
Elida has the fight song of THE Ohio State University <--- and yes that is exactly how you are to say it. No excuses.

Then a move to Mount Vernon Ohio for College
A move back to Lima...because when you & your husband have twins at age 20 you move back home.
Then a move to Tempe, Arizona {that place will always have a HUGE piece of my heart}

And then a move back to Ohio.
We currently live in a small town in southern Ohio called

WE love it.
This is where we bought our first home, it took us almost 7 years of being married but we did it!


  1. We should always be proud of where we live and love our home town rather that's where we are now. Awesome it was home of the Bulldogs. Given that I'm from GA I'm all for the Bulldogs. GA bulldogs that is. I have a cousin who lives in Mt. Vernon. :D

    Would love for you to come join my hop if you havent already.

  2. Yay for your first house and twins at any age totally need the support of family and friends!!!

  3. I love your school pride :).

    Also, I've driven through Mountain Home several times. There isn't much to remember ;).

  4. I love your house! And yes - I agree that it is so important to love where you live. I would bet that almost any place can be wonderful if you have the right attitude and make an effort.

  5. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! And yeay for buying your first home!! My hubby and I have been married for almost 7 years now as well, but we still rent the house we live in. Were praying that being home owners will be in our near future. :)

    Have a great day!


  6. yay Ohio! I always found it funny that Glee was supposed to be in Lima, Ohio! :)

  7. i really love your layout!! <3 im blogging over on wordpress now, not sure if you can follow me from blogger.

  8. Katie! I totally know Lima, OH and Elida! I grew up outside of Van Wert and went to Crestview for elementary school. We still head back that way for holidays. What a small world!
