I'm so grateful every time I return home and just more and more appreciative of the place I was raised in. As a kid, I had no idea how special and magical it was. Since traveling and living in a bunch of different places, and because it is home, I just really see how special it is. Here's a glimpse of some of my last days visiting home this summer.
One of my all time favorite meals at a local cafe here: everything bagel with cucumber herb cream cheese & an iced fruit tea.
A fun little find that perfectly sums up mountain kids.
Babysitting three years later for Maddie who I nannied as a baby and her new little sister, Susannah.
Lake days with old friends are THE BEST. You can't beat it.
