Five Things

I miss about New Jersey
1. The Produce: The Garden State is actually called the Garden State for a reason. During the summer that reason is tomatoes and corn. For example: my mother felt the need to send me pictures of her Jersey fresh dinner the other day.
Tomatoes grilled corn
2. The open spaces: Not that Virginia doesn’t have wide open spaces, but I live and work in a more urban area now. I am not a city mouse, I am a country mouse. That is for sure. So I’m just trying on the city for a bit, and seeing what happens.
3. My friends and family: Again, I have friends that I love in Virginia and DC, but the NJ ones are the originals and I always miss them when I don’t live there.
4. The Beach: I’ll be honest, I have no idea where the closest beach is here, and I don’t want to go to it. I want to go to Stone Harbor.
5.My Hairdresser: I got my hair cut in a mall last week. No offense to my very nice hairdresser, but your name is not Melissa and I haven’t been your client since before you were married and had two children who are now in first and second grade.
Homesick much? What do you miss the most when you’re away from home?
