the beauties

Six months ago, when I told people I was from Indiana, they said something along the lines of: Oh! I love Peyton Manning!

Now, they typically give me the eek face, where they make their mouths into a slit, suck in air, and say: Looks like it's going to be a rough season for the Colts, eh?

It's a stark contrast to the good old days.

However, on Sunday, I went to a dinner party and one of the people I met said: Indiana! Everyone in Indiana is beautiful. I used to date someone from Indiana, and when I would visit, I would look around and think, everyone here is so attractive.

It made my heart very happy. Because I agree, everyone I know in Indiana is very beautiful. Inside and out.

  1. love your homestate pride! while i am a huge pats/tom brady fan...I do like Peyton, esp his commercials lol

  2. Your pride in Indiana is so refreshing! I can't stand when people don't have pride for their state or country. It's yours - own it!

  6. Whitney--you don't know how happy this post made me!!!!! I am a Hoosier girl :) :) :) :) :) :) :) I thought you might be too before I got to this post because I saw a few IU references (my parents both went to IU and got engaged at Beck Chapel!), but this confirms it. Though I don't live there any more, it holds a very special place in my heart. And I may or may not own that necklace. {TRUTH!} So excited to get to know you! xoxo {av} | {long distance loving}
