Farewell to my New England life.


 
 


I realize I wont be going to my New England home to meet up with my family members this year, which is fine. I admit, I kind of don't miss..the New England lifestyle? Is it wrong for me to say that? Probably. Maine is a great place to visit but to live? I guess it is if you're lucky enough to even find a job for yourself. Regardless, I do miss the coastal towns. I do miss my childhood home cooked meals. I even miss how pretty it gets around this time - when the leaves change. I didn't think too much of it while I was living there, though. Go figure.

I, at least, had my husband visit where I grew up. My family members loved him. Success. On the other hand, I do get homesick...but it goes away quickly. Ahem. Just saying.


I've also got to visit Salem, Massachusetts. It's a lovely town. I would love to go back, honestly. If I feel like living in New England, this might be it. Maybe.


I am pretty sure my husband does not miss the weather. Not one bit. Poor bugger; he was wearing so many layers and he still couldn't wait to hide inside. This picture was taken in Bar Harbor, Maine.

My brother lives in Bangor, Maine. It was pretty cool to see his apartment (he moved into a better one with his girlfriend recently). I had some dreadful Japanese cuisine, though. That is the one thing I don't miss about New England: Asian food. Well, if you can call it that. (swallow nervously).


Once in  my life, I've been to the good part of Boston. No, not the South of Boston. Miracle. I finally ventured outside of the south of Boston. Ah, New England. Let's face it, my family has some history here. For an example click here for my grandfather's first cousin story of becoming the first aviator in Maine.
