Reflections of My Roots

It doesn't matter where you hang your hat. It will be home wherever you make it. However, my roots are in New Jersey and I'll forever be a Jersey Girl.

The Urban Dictionary gives the following definition of a Jersey Girl.

"The Jersey girl..a love of an unpretentious good time, and a certain sense of style. Jersey girls are about attitude. They're about eating pizza, drinking beer, having great hair - and enjoying it all..She's got a mouth on her. She says what she means. And she's got a nice, cheerful laugh..Bottom line, all of them are sexy as hell." -The Star Ledger
Everyone loves a Jersey Girl.


I'd have to say this one is pretty accurate. I'm proud of where I grew up. I'm pretty proud of my strong personality. I'm still true to myself at this stage of my life.  

I've lived in many places. Different states, different towns, different houses. It didn't matter. I've always made my home wherever I've roamed but I'll always have Jersey in my heart.

Until next time, just remember...

Where are your roots? Would love to know.

  5. Well hey there! Good to see you around. We're both Colorado boys, through and through, but you probably already knew that. Craft beer runs through our veins, and we use that to climb mountains... which is probably a terrible combo, but we haven't hurt ourselves yet (fingers crossed it stays that way!).

  10. Hi Bee-Bee! I was born in a small town called Widnes in England UK. Widnes' claim to fame is that it was at Widnes railway station that Simon (and Garfunkel) wrote the song 'Homeward Bound'. But I was brought up in the 1960's in the city of Liverpool - and we all know what group Liverpool is famous for! Most of my adult life has been spend in Scotland however and nowadays, as a nomad, I like to think of the whole world as my back yard!
    Love, Janice xx
