I miss…

 

Impromptu playdates on porches and sidewalks with neighbors that are like family.

The hodgepodge scenery of a neighborhood built around factories and farms.

This big old house that we worked so hard on and housed so many fantastic memories.

Quiet parks surrounded by farm fields.

The five-minute drive to my parents’ farm (via actual car, not battery-powered motorcycle).

Short walks to the nearby “waterfall” (aka dam)…

I don’t regret our choice to move. We’ve gained so many great experiences and friends in our new neighborhood. But sometimes I really miss the place I had come to know so well and its conveniences and charms.
