4 Things I Love About My Hometown

What do you expect?” Most of you probably know I grew up in Giddings, TX.  If you have traveled to Austin going down HWY 290. You have most like gone through Giddings. I ended up in Houston in 2006 after I finished up my associates degree at Blinn College. I moved to the city to attend University of Houston. I stayed in Houston because the economy is great and is where I met my husband.   For me, Giddings revolves around family, food and beer. I never realized how much I loved my hometown until I come back to visit. Here are my reasons I love going home:   1) My family still lives there. In particular, my parents, sister and her children. Something about being in the house I grew up in makes be go back to a much simpler time. It brings me a lot of comfort to sleep in my old bedroom.

I don’t get to see them everyday and cherish the moments my son, Travis, gets to spend with them. There’s nothing like cousins!   2) I love the charm and beauty that still remains in Lee County. When I go home now, in the mornings when everyone is still sleeping, I sit on the back porch steps and listen to the birds chirping in the distance....
