    Maybe you've heard of Hartsville,

    SC and maybe you haven't. I hadn't until I turned 5 and we moved there for the first time. We were only supposed to spend 3 to 4 years there but we ended up spending 8 there. Things happened and we moved to Georgia. At first, I was very depressed about the move and for many...

    Not Where I Grew Up...but What Town I Call Home! :-)

    I miss my old town, and I would like to go back! :-) The people there are just so great!  When I went for a walk, everyone would wave and say hi.  Most would start talking about God (or I would start talking about God) and how He blessed our lives.  We would have...

    To my old friends who still live there it is a

    "Shithole with nothing to do", but the more i am away from it, the more i admire it when i return. It's not really a "town" as such, more a village with a couple thousand people. I think that is what i miss the most, the small help-each-other-out community spirit. I live in a...

    I came from New Mexico to go to school in

    Colorado. Unfortunately college ended up sucking (I won't elaborate here; I have other stories about that if you're interested) and Colorado turned out to be too cold and the culture is so different here. I miss New Mexico but at the same time, I wouldn't be satisfied...

    An old Irish saying, "May those

    who love us, love us; and those who don't love us, may God turn their hearts; and if He doesn't turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so we'll know them by their limping." Cracks me up every time! XD

    I just moved to Houston from Seattle,

    where I lived for the first two decades of my life. I've only lived here for about a month and a half now, but I miss my friends and family, and I'm waaaaaaay more of a Northerner than a Southerner, so there is a lot of culture shock going on.

    Of course I miss my hometown.

    But only the place, landscape, nature all aroud. Instead life was not easy there. A small rural place where you must work hard for every little thing.

    I was born in northern Ohio

    You Can Never Go Back Home.

    My home town was once filled with dirt road's, farm's and country store's. There was mile's of wood's to hunt and play in. We played and went swimming in it's creek's that you could drink from without getting sick. Today that is all gone with hardly nothing left to remind me of...

    Charleston, Sc

    I was born and raised in Charleston, SC. I moved to Baltimore in 2003 to be with the guy that I would eventually marry. We kept talking about moving to Charleston in a couple of years, but it doesn't look like that will happen any time soon. I miss Charleston! Baltimore is a hard...

    I Miss My Hometown So Much!

    I'd give anything to be there, right now, instead of this place! I miss my family. I miss my friends (even if there weren't very many of them). I miss comfortable surroundings. I'm getting closer and closer to just saying "**** it" and moving back. But I can't do that because I...

    From Sjc To Slc

    3 years ago I experienced one of the most toughest and unexpected moves with my family. Cost of living in San Jose, CA became too much so we decided to move to Salt Lake City, UT. We do have family out here, but adjusting to the environment and lifestyle is still difficult to get...

    I miss it a lot. I don't consider Louisville my

    'Home'. I live here, sure but it's not my home to me. I miss living in the mountains with my Grandma (on my dad's side). I would wake up every morning and feed the horses, go and hunt and come back and skin everything. While the boys and men worked on the crops. We grow all...

    I just want to go back to Minnesota,

    lay in my old room in the basement, go to football games, wait for the cold to come, and complain about how much I hate the snow when it finally starts because that's my home, that's where I belong. Even if I hated it at times. It's better then hating it here 24/7

    These past few months,

    I've been saying to myself "I want to go back" (to my hometown). But I didn't realize that I meant back in time as well. If I went back to my hometown now and tried to piece together the life that I had, I'd be too different and it wouldn't work. But then, the life that I have...
