Where I'm From

I am from the summer breeze on the lake Up North
    The smell of a campfire filling the cabin.
         I am from four wheelers and snowmobiles
Action and adventure.

I am from Mom’s homemade apple pie
The savory vanilla ice cream to go with it.
I am from coffee shops with my mom
    Mochas on winter days.

I am from Lynn and Chris
    Telling me, “Never go halfway at anything you do, give it your all.”
I am from getting my license on my 16th birthday
   My parents reminding me to, “Drive safe and put your phone away.”

       I am from the nickname Samo given to me by my eighth grade best friend
            Roaring laughter and smiles filling the halls at school.
    I am from trips to Lapham Peak with my friends
Sunsets and polaroid cameras.

    I am from three dogs
    Paws hitting me in the face as I play with them.
   I am from summer nights,
       Trips to the Kiltie.
