Show Us Your Life: Your City

The topic of today’s Show Us Your Life is Your City.

Well “My City” is still MountainTop, PA, where both Alex and I were born and raised and quite the opposite of where we live now, Indianapolis.

This is the house i grew up in, thanks to bing maps birds eye view.

This is the high school Alex and I went to …. good old Crestwood High School.

Mountaintop doesn’t really have a whole lot to offer besides pizza places and banks … but it has amazing scenery. You don’t realize how much you take mountains for granted until you move to “the middle”.

Indy on the other hand has A LOT to offer.

This is a picture of downtown and the canal. I used to work right by the canal and it was awesome to go to lunch at Buggs Temple and sit outside on the patio that overlooks the canal.

Hey Sarah I found your blog from Kelly's Korner and I thought I would stop by and say hi because we are from the same town. My girls will also go to the same High School as Liam, good ole' Avon. I'm a Plainfield grad so its hard for me to think I will have to be an Avon fan! ha! I would love to get to know you more through your blog and maybe one we will meet up at a high school football game or something :)

Wow, I could not relate more to this post! I live in NEPA now (I saw Mountaintop, which is why I clicked this post) but I grew up in CT. (My DH is from this area.) And seriously, I was just talking to a friend today who is considering teaching at Crestwood next year! lol!
However, I've been to Indy several times, and I went to college in Ohio. You are SO right about it being "the middle"! lol I have to say I'm not really a fan of the MidWest - give me mountains or the beach any day!

I have a little boy, too - so nice to "meet" you today! New follower! :)

The circle at Christmas time is my FAVORITE! We went and walked around last year and saw Santa riding a motorcycle! But I wasn't quick enough with my camera :(
