Pop music star (and one of the best Saturday Night Live hosts in history) Justin Timberlake is not the only one bringing sexy back.
Bardstown native Kim Huston, who just happens to be my ex-stepmother, (it's complicated) is bringing sexy back for small town USA with her new book Small Town Sexy. Her book, which is scheduled to be released this summer, explores the "new allure and appeal of living in small town America" and the "seductive charm these towns have," according to her web site smalltownsexy.com.
"Being born and raised in a wonderful small town, Bloomfield, and now continuing my career in economic development in one of the greatest small towns in America, Bardstown, I love hopping off interstates traveling through small towns and experiencing their character and people," Kim writes on her web site.
When she first told me about the idea for the book I'll be honest, I didn't really get it. I thought the title was catchy, very Sex in the City-ish. And I knew she was on to something. Knowing Kim, I knew that she would do it right, but I just didn't quite understand what the book was going to be about.
When I think of small towns, I don't think of them as being "sexy" per say. Don't get me wrong - I love small towns. In fact, I can't imagine living anywhere else. But what makes them sexy?
"More and more people are discovering small town America, and not just as a place to visit anymore, but as a place to call home," Kim writes on her web site. "Many are moving to reinvent themselves, many find it a perfect retirement option and there are even the cyber commuters who are choosing small towns because they can live wherever they want in this age of technology."
In her book, Kim will not only share her stories and experiences in small towns, but will also share stories of other people who have experienced their own "love affair" with a small town. In fact, she has set up a blog link for others to share their stories and photos. To share your story, go to her web site at www.smalltownsexy.com. Send photos or YouTube links about your small town to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"I want all to know that small America is not your 'Mayberry' anymore and that you can do big business in a small town," Kim writes on her web site. "I look forward to convincing the world, that in their own special way, small towns are very sexy!"
