R is for Rockingham

This is a community painting of Richmond County, North Carolina. *

R is for Rockingham


"Where is that?" A bewildered friend, relative or stranger would ask as I told them my plans to move to another state. Some NASCAR fans knew about it from its racetrack.

While I'm a blip in the city's history — just another reporter or editor, who came into town to work at the newspaper, the city means a lot to me. I continue to love the city's brand: A city looking forward

I opened a new chapter of my life in Rockingham. It turned out so well (met Hubby and got engaged), I only stayed there for two years and moved onto another chapter (Texas). 

R could stand for Rick. Without his invitation, I would have never known about Rockingham.

  2. What a beautiful group painting. Thanks for sharing a little of your past with us Stacy. I'm guessing Rockingham has lots of farmland?!

  7. You met your husband there. Lovely. And that is an awesome painting.

    When I saw the title, I thought Rockingham County in Virginia where my daughter and I live. How ironic!

  10. It's great that you're so well-traveled. I once had a b-f from North Carolina, but never seriously considered living there, though it's a beautiful state.
