While I do like the area I am living in I do miss my home. In Michigan! It will always be my home no matter whaer my house may be.
What am I missing in particular right now? Besides my daughter Kylie, my sisters, neices and their families, and my friends.... I am missing Fall in the fall time. I can decorate like it’s Halloween or Thanksgiving but it’s just different without that scent of fall in the air. I can drink some version of apple cider that was shipped here from somewhere (probably MI) but it’s not the same without that little bit of nip in outside
The fall here just has not been exciting for me. Maybe in East TN where there is mountains and the trees actually change colors. But not here! My trees are still full and green. There is no Fall in the air here. And it makes me just a little bit sad.
I know come winter time I will be glorifying the warmer temps we have here in West TN while others are knee deep in snow in April.
But in the meantime I am missing Michigan just little bit!

    • Hey honey didn't you know this time of year is homesickness time .......... without fail in October I get a huge urge to move back to Manchester I even look on property websites – if I actually went home I think I would do something rash so I stay put till November and it passes ........ I'm not alone loads of friends get the same feeling so now we have a homesickness party – it's next week at my friends and we have a laugh eat food from Up North and tell stories , get silly and then remember all the reasons why we left ........

    • I may have to come to your homesickness party (which sounds like a great idea)since I haven’t found too many northern transplants here.

      Thank You for letting me know I’m not alonehappy

    • Of course you will always Miss your home town, and who can blame you when most of your family Is there also. You are more stronger then I would be. Actually I don’t know how It would feel, I have never been out of California to live anywhere else. I have always been here and don’t think I could ever move If unless I really had too, but I hope you get to feeling at home soon.

    • Vikki....I can’t imagine being homesick.  I’ve lived in the same town all my life.  I’ve never had to move other than when I got married...to our new apartment...then to our townhouse..then to our three other houses.  All right in the same town.  

      I would have thought that you would have even more fall like weather in W. TN than in the eastern part...closer to me.  It has gotten cooler...but none of my leaves have started to change...and my grass is still somewhat green.  I’m ready for a nip in the air as well.  I’ll be glad to turn off my air conditioning.  But...I do know that the very rare times in my life that I’ve experience actual snow...I liked it for about a day or so...then...after I walked in it..played in it...looked at it...I was ready for it to go away.  I would never survive up north in the constant snow...all winter long. Or that extemely cold temps.  I hate wearing heavy coats all the time. So I understand your pain.  I have a friend that moved with her husband and three small children from N.Augusta to Spokane, WA.  She has never lived anywhere else in her life...and she absolutely hates it out there.  Her husband’s job transferred him and she had no choice about going. But I talk to her weekly and all she can say is...“these people are different that any other people I’ve ever met“.   She said they are rude and downright mean.  LOL
      She misses home terribly.  

      I hope you make some new friends...and some new relationships to make up for the void.  happy

    • I bet Michigan misses you too~  you are a part of it!

      I can relate, although I get “back east” often enough.  I am in Tucson, AZ now yet was born and raised and lived for 38 years in Connecticut.  Food products are really a big part of it, for sure!  Being from east of the Mississippi River, I am accustomed to Hellman’s Mayonaisse and Wise Potato Chips.  Not Best Foods Mayo and Ruffles! Fresh seafood, oooooooh man, yikes!  Oh..yes indeed there are larger tragedies whirling around, of this I am certain.  But it is what it is!

      Hopefully you can get back there soon!  I feel your “pain“.

      Be well!

    • I live in Michigan now and we are having a very gloomy unseasonably cold fall so far... If that helps.. I do understand how you feel though.. I lived in Florida for two years and loved it but missed family and the change of seasons very much... buy a pumpkin and some cute fall decorations for your house.. they always help me feel better when down.. to look around and see cute things...
