Where the hell is Dewy Rose?

Dewy Rose is a small community in Elbert County outside of Elberton. It is not a town or a city, it is a community. It has a post office and it's own zip code (30634), but not much else.

I live on the Davis family land. The land includes a green house business, my in-laws' house and a lovely double wide mobile home where my hubby and I currently live rent free. It is somewhere around one hundred acres of country, and outside my window I see trees, cows, squirrels, birds and occasionally chipmunks and rabbits. Sounds like a Disney movie right?

Except I am so not a country southern belle. I was born in the projects of the South Bronx, I grew up in Cabo Rojo Puerto Rico ten minutes away from beaches, I do not drive, I do not drink sweet tea, and I have a irrational fear of insects. I am a Puerto Rican girl living in a small town who is about to start teaching Spanish to High School students whose parents might call Spanish "Mexican".

Michael and I discussed starting a blog about married life, many people have told us we should. The reality is that Michael and I have been together for 5 years tomorrow (Happy Anniversary!) and although we have been married for less than 2 months our lives are just not that interesting. I think being the new Spanish teacher in the local high school and my experiences in this country town will probably be more interesting. I am sure I will include somethings to embarrass my hubby with. After all, he grew up in this place.

With love,


  1. Dude the first day of class you should say to the students, “I want to make sure you are in the right class", and then ask, "who is registered for the Mexican class?", and then instruct the students who answer yes to the Principal’s office, and never invite them back. That’s a great way to weed out the riffraff.

  2. I have to agree with Lucia. You've got to ask them who is signed up for the Mexican class. That's just too good to pass up on.

    This is going to be a very, very interesting blog. I feel like I'm going to have a great many laughs! However, I do feel that Michael will most likely be agreeing with you on many of your stories and not feel too embarrassed. Anyway, it's going to be very interesting to find out. I 'luv' it!!!

  3. I love the name of your blog! You are a great writer and you cracked me up with the "Mexican"!! HA! Can't wait to hear school stories!

  4. I love this! And you are so right about the Mexican thing. The people in Elberton are interesting to say the least and I think you will have lots of stuff to blog about. Just remember-I'm from Atlanta-a city chic -not Elberton!!!
