Who Says You Can't Go Home Again?

I'm headed up to the Eastern Shore of Maryland today to see my mom, dad, grandfather, brother, sis-in-law and adorable nephew. I haven't seen Ben (the nephew - refers to himself as Bobo - how cute is that?) since last March. Far too long.

While I'm there, I'm going to eat crabs! Mmmm...

My mother tells me there's a good chance some shopping will be done as well. I love that woman.

What are the things you look forward to when you visit "home"?


  1. My momma's biscuits and gravy and fresh vegetable dinners.


  2. That sounds absolutely wonderful.

  3. My mom and brother cooking all sorts of bro is a chef!
    Right now I miss the simple things, like free babysitting and a trip to Target. Can you believe there are none in Hawaii? And they call it America!

    Have a great time, Kristen! :)

  5. Have a great time! I actually never left my hometown. Still in the same town I went to school in and where my family is.

  6. Hmm, my place is the only home I have. At the moment with everything in flux there's not a lot to look forward to here, but I did get son no 2 a new bed today and he was chuffed, and we made a pile of black currant pies which made the house smell wonderful. I envy you guys having a family home to go nest in. How special is that? A place to love and be loved just for the fact of being. Awesome.
