…but you can’t take Vermont out of the girl.
Since becoming a Marine wife I’ve struggled with finding my place. There are things that have always made me feel like I don’t belong.
I’m too liberal,
to much of a hippy.
My heart longs for the mountains,
Always I felt like an outsider to those around me. That all ends when I go home. Some people search their entire lives for a place that feels like home. I’ve never had that problem. Vermont is my home, and it’s where I belong. Where there are others who value the things I value, who understand me. I’ve never wanted to leave it. I had been to other places before marrying my husband, I knew they weren’t for me.
Fate has other plans, and I’m on my way far away from my Green Mountain home. I’ll always be a Vermonter, always the mountains will call me home.
