The Place that Shaped Me

I left my heart in a magical place. A place that holds years of wonder and awe. A place that knows me better than any other place I’ve been. This place has changed me and molded me into the person I am now. The forests, trees, creeks, and open skies instilled in me a love for God’s works. The harshness of the winters has taught me to be patient and to endure. My small town is where I learned the small-town work ethic; you don’t get what you don’t earn and earning what you want takes a little bit of sweat and tears. Here I learned that you don’t have to be blood to be family. Brothers and sisters are made throughout years of school together. We relied on each other to be happy. This place will forever hold my heart and soul. I am a small town girl through and through. It’s who I will always be. Forever. Thanks IDAHO for shaping me into something more than I was.
