Chatterbug College: Social Studies - Hometown
I was born in Anderson, South Carolina during the summer of 1965. My daddy was born there, my grandpa was born there and a few zillion other members of my family were born there, including our surviving children.
Anderson is located in the Northwestern corner of the state where South Carolina borders with Georgia, which also has a good bit of my family's history contained within its borders. Anderson has four distinct seasons, but doesn't always get snow in the wintertime. As I've gotten older, it seems that the snow times have gotten fewer. However, it seems like since we moved out here to Texas, they've gotten more snow back home than they ever did while I was there. So unfair! :)
I lived in South Carolina until 2004, so until just after I turned 39 years old. My first birthday in Texas was my 40th birthday.
What I love about Anderson County, South Carolina, is the family history there and the beautiful scenery. It has a rolling landscape, not flat as a pancake everywhere for miles. When the fall comes, the leaves on the trees change colors and it is an awesomely beautiful site, most especially in the mountains. No matter where I turn, something involving my family is there.
No matter where my life's journey takes me, South Carolina will always have my heart.
