It is really beautiful. Just a different type of beautiful than I’m used to. Instead of rain, cold and snow, it’s extreme heat, thunderstorms, and tornadoes.
Lots of ponds. Big beautiful swampy ponds. I’d like one in my backyard. Ponds with turtles and ducks (real or not) floating around. Ponds in backyards. Not a normal thing in the Northwest.
And a Sonic. Did you know the South has about 346329 Sonic’s? They do, and I took the liberty of experiencing it first hand.
My mom and I took care of lunch. Two Diet Cokes, and an order of anything deep fat fried and cheesy please. Thank you very much Sonic.
Houses with huge front yards.
Houses with pools in the backyard. Pools are normal in the South.
I wish. Backyards with everything you could want. We were at this house for a party while we were visiting in the South. I was in love. A secret corner here and there with couches and televisions. A lighted path that takes you around the entire house. I wish I would have taken more pictures to show ya’ll. You would have died.
Here’s my mom, Lucas and I outside. That’s my mom in the yellow, I’m in the black. At this point Lucas thought we were a little crazy. Normal.
I wish there was a place on Earth where you could have it all. The weather you wanted, the house you wanted with the price you wanted, the school’s and population you wanted. A Sonic with a gym next door, bike lanes on dirt roads in the middle of nowhere. A University two miles away from your house with a pond in your backyard. A little bit of both.
For now, I’l continue to live in the Northwest and visit the South. I think I like it that way.
Do you live in the South or the Northwest? What do you love about where you live?
