Well, the fact of the matter is, the blog is about me. And, as much as I tried not to be a small town girl anymore… Guess what? I am Alicia in a small town.
Why Alicia In A Small Town?
You might think it’s a boring story, but it’s not. I promise you that. You see, when I was 17 I met a Marine, married him at 18, had a baby at 19, and left rural Georgia in the dust before I turned 20. I thought I was gone for good.
I moved to a quaint little area between Ann Arbor and Detroit, Michigan first. We stayed there for about a year. I hated it there, but toughed it out for my son.
After that though, we moved to the big city of Indianapolis. I had another son while living there, and soon fell in love with the city and made some pretty good friends there. None of them ever believed that I could possibly be from some little bitty town where everybody knows everybody, but I was.
Fate took it’s toll on my marriage, and I ended up back in Georgia one February morning in 2010… Not long after I moved back, I got a true taste of what small town living was like, the good and the bad, and when I would tell my friends from up north about it, they couldn’t believe their ears, so I soon began to chronicle it for everyone in this wonderful blog.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this story of how Alicia In A Small Town came to be, and I sincerely hope that you will come back and join me again! For a good laugh, and to get an idea of what small town living is like, check out this post.
