Into the Tundra

my adventures in northern indiana


I feel honored to have had the privilege to live in the South for (almost) five years. To have learned Southern traditions, eaten Southern food and basked in the absolute hotness of the Southern sun. To have seen Southern treasures and learned to understand the Southern accent.

I feel honored to have had the privilege of living in the little blue house on the dirt road for two whole years. To have seen the beauty of said dirt road, mown the dust that is the equivalent of the lawn around the house and enjoyed the amazing flowering trees that grow in that dust. May the next owners have many amazing years in this house!

I feel honored to have had the privilege of getting to know the people in and around the great town of Abbeville. To have learned to say “how ya doin” to the man holding the gas station door open for me (yeah, we don’t do that in the North), lived across the road from Ellawee for three years and fallen in love with the ladies that I cleaned for.

But the greatest honor is: to have been a part of the Whispering Pines family. To have learned to know each one of you and become good friends with you. You will never know how much it meant to us when you took us in after all our family was gone. Your prayers and understanding and kindness…they were all felt. We will miss each and every one of you greatly.

P.S. I am very thankful for Facebook right now!
