I am from bitter chills of Wisconsin,
five months of winter, 100 degree summers, and an abundance of days on the lake.
I am from the South,
North and South Carolina, where a southern accent where a southern accent comforts and brings predictability.
I am from a family with no father,
with a bond between a son and a mother, simply inseparable.
I am from hours in the pool,
swimming back and forth too many times to count.
I am from homemade cooking,
a father that went to culinary school and wanted to show off to his kids.
I am from a DIY family,
a grandfather finding pleasure in fixing things with his grandson.
I am from a big red Ford Expedition,
blasting music down scenic roads with the people I love.
