With the United States getting "smaller and smaller," it seems like families are getting further and further away from each other. I moved to Georgia from California 7 years ago and met and married my husband here. However, I always pictured myself living and raising a family in my small hometown in Northern California.
I lived a block away from my Grandma and Grandpa and they were my home away from home. Whenever my mom was making something for dinner that I didn't like, I'd call Gram up and see what she was having (while getting the evil eye from my mom). I miss being in a small community where everyone knew and was friendly with each other. I would love my daughter to grow up having a close relationship with my Mom and Dad...hanging out in the evenings, sharing dinners, etc...maybe it'll happen someday! This is a picture of some of the folks from my hometown: Newman, California.
