St. Louis

(Found this photo on NACUMS conference brocure)
My hometown city.  Isn't it beautiful?  I love this place.

And while I never have any intention of living in St. Louis again, I still refer to it as "My City".  And I still find myself comparing every other place I've lived to my fabulous STL.  And despite the fact that I have lived in lots of other places, when people ask me where I'm from, I proudly tell them "I grew up in St. Louis."

So this week, while T-Man and Fearless are out of school and Dr. C has to stay in the deep South to play work in the corn fields, I felt the pull of my hometown and brought the kids up here for the week to visit my parents.

Spring Break in My City?  Priceless.

I just found your blog recently & this is odd because I've been so vague about our locale on my site, but it has been COLD & NASTY in STL this year. Am CA girl at heart... Don't mean to offend, but your home town & I were not happy together this winter.

And speaking of CA, were those long beach pix in November? I think I recognized the oil derricks!

Anyway, nice to 'meet' you. Our girls have a lot in common. said...

We are out of school this week too and I almost went to St. Louis for Spring Break! I wish I knew, I would have come down.
