I am so homesick for Virginia. I never thought I'd move away, never. I loved it there, I really did. I haven't been home in so long and it's absolutely killing me. I miss everything about it, even the stupid stuff I never really thought about the things I guess I took for granted.
I miss jet noise. Yes, seriously I miss hearing the loud jets, having to stop what I'm saying or repeat myself but you feel really safe when you hear that noise.
I miss Slurpees. We don't have 7/11 here. Seriously why do we not have 7/11's here? Come on Kentucky! Slurpees and Big Gulps are good things.
I miss my friends and family. Of course, I really don't have anything to say except I now know how much I love you all. I wish I had said it more.
I miss knowing how to get anywhere I want to go. I've been here 5 years and I still struggle.
I miss knowing when it's going to rain. The humidity in Virginia is so thick sometimes you can just feel that it's just got to rain soon.
I miss good seafood. I'm just scared to eat the stuff we have around here. Plus in Virginia you can catch your own crabs and it's just not the same.
I miss the ocean. I miss the only second to my family and friends. The feeling of sand in between my toes and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore reminds me of so many wonderful things. I miss that.
I need to make it a priority this year to go home. I'm really sad about it. I want my boy's to know where momma comes from and Virginia is that!
