Once again..I disappeared from the blogging world for a short while. My bad. I have been busier at work (which I love) and when I get off..all I want to do is hang out w/ Sean, my friends or just plain relax. And since I think that you would get bored reading about me laying on the couch watching " Orange is the New Black" (which was Ahh-mazing!) ..I spare you the details. I am have a blogging block. I don't know what to write about!!! 

But then I stumbled upon Blogtember and I realized I found the solution to my problem. Jenni @ Story of my Life has come up with blog prompts for every weekday in Sept. so that us bloggers who find it difficult on certain days to come up with a topic will have something to write about! There are no real rules..if you skip a day you can make it up or just forget it. If you don't like a topic, then write about something else.It's simple, fun and helpful to someone like me! So without further adieu here is Sept. 3rd's topic : Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.

When people ask me where I am from..I say " Miami" because anyone that doesn't live under a rock knows where that is. But truthfully I am from a "small town" south of Miami called Homestead. Some people still know where that is because of the NASCAR Speedway or because it is the city right before you enter The Keys. I went to HS about twenty minutes away so I hung out more in Miami than I did in my small town. And I say small town lightly because Homestead transformed from when I was born to what it is now. Small towns to some mean no stop lights, dirt roads and farms. And Homestead used to be that way many years ago. But now there are houses everywhere, traffic almost as bad as Miami and mini malls being built every other day. Not that I don't miss Homestead but it isn't what it used to be. I love to go home and visit for a couple days and see the places that have been there for 20+years but I don't think I could ever move back home permanently. But its that "small town" feel, where you know your neighbors and you have friends who have lived there all their lives, that make me miss it from time to time. I haven't been home in 6 months (I am used to going home every other month) so I am desperately in need of a trip SOON! 

Besides where I came from...the people who I grew up around definitely are a HUGE part of who I am today. I lived within 30 mins of all my close relatives and just a couple blocks away from the only cousins I have. I lived in a single parent home and even though I saw my Dad more growing up...it was always my mom, brother and I and than just my mom and I as my brother got older. She was and still is my best friend. I talk to her at least 2 times a day. Many would think it is crazy but I tell her so much about my life and it would feel weird to not talk to her every morning/night. Being so young when my parents divorced( I was 7) shaped me into the person I am today. Sometimes not for the best ( it makes it difficult to trust people when it comes to relationships etc.) but it has made me stronger, more independent and has made the bond between my mom and I so strong and I wouldn't change that for a second. 

So that's me...that's my past and how I came to be the girl I am today! I hope you join me and the rest of those who linked up w/ Blogtember. 

<3 happy bloggin'
