Where I Come From
I grew up on a small farm in a remote area of California. When I go home to visit, I love the nostalgic feeling that completely overwhelms me as soon as I pull up on the property. Immediately, I am taken back to my childhood days of playing until dark, warm summer nights, and drinking grape Kool Aide. Our farm is in the middle of nowhere, with the nearest grocery store being 30 miles away. I spent many summers hanging out with my brother and playing cards with my auntie. Now that I am older, I realize that I grew up in a very unique place, and I am always happy to come back home.
Where do you come from?
The path to my grandparents house.
Biking on the property.
My favorite red tractor.
Vintage cars are all over the property.
My uncle still drives this old Ford.
Dusk is my favorite time of day.
I made apricot jam. Details to come on Food Friday.
