Where are you from?

This past weekend we drove north to Ed's hometown to visit his parents. When we got far enough north we turned on the radio (because the boys movie was finished - it is a 4 hour drive). And I laughed immediately when I heard the gentleman who was dj-ing the radio station - TOTAL UP NORTH voice...or maybe it is the up north radio station itself. Anyways, I LOVE IT!

Then we passed some bars and outside there were several (like 20) snowmobiles lined up. Only Up North!

As we listened to the radio station we heard them announcing that some bar was going to have a meat raffle - only up north.

And yet the two lane roads that are surrounded by tall pines, small lakes, or the view of Lake Superior tempt me to convince Ed to quit his job and move north...you feel at peace and your shoulders relax.

I have a site meter on my blog that lets me get a hint at who is stopping by my blog (only a hint - it doesn't tell me exactly. For example my mom's visits register as a city 30-40 miles away). Anyways, I have noticed lately that there are people that stop by from Canada...and Europe...and Ohio....and Tennessee and Michigan, and North Carolina....and it amazes me. It reminds me that our world is not all that big. I wonder if you come from up north surroundings or the lifestyle of the big city.

Anyways, if you stop by give a shout out and tell us from where you are coming from...list a state or a city or a country. I would love to see if my site meter is at all accurate! My comment thingy allows you to respond anonymously so don't be shy.

Happy Monday Evening! My goal is to be sleeping by 9 pm....in hopes of being a little less edgy tomorrow :)

I am from that Up North neck of the woods you write about it. If you and the rest of our friends move up there...I'm in!

Gilbert, Arizona.... a suburb of Phoenix... that started small... but is now a pretty big place! :) That's where I live now, but when people talk about 'where are you from' I always go to my hometown, which is in Colorado (although admittedly, I've never lived there, but it is where my parents are from). :)

Yeah. Up north!

My son has been talking about Split rock for 3 days. I'm not sure I'm up for a 5 hr car ride, though.

Anyways, I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog, and also say that I can completely relate to the quote you have at the top of your blog. I struggle with this a lot, and I constantly need to be reminded to stop and ... smell the children once in a while.

Warm Southern California! It's this time of year that I do not miss Wisconsin!

I'm stopping in from Arizona - the state of endless sunshine and spectacular sunsets. :)

Isn't it wonderful how social media makes the world "smaller"? Because of my blog, I now "know" people from almost every state in the US.
