there's no place like home ...

including home! 

 I journeyed back to my home town for a couple of days to visit with my 92 (perhaps 93) year old great uncle as well as a few other family members. My sister flew in from California and we managed to keep the roads hot and cameras snapping. When it was all said and done, we celebrated our good fortune to have grown up in a small country town that was in its heyday during a less-than-innocent time, but certainly slower and simpler by today's standards. 

As Dorothy declared, "there is no place like home" and even though my hometown barely resembles its' old self, it is still home and great memories pour from every nook and cranny.


  1. So glad you are able to go home and reconnect. Enjoy your visit!

  2. So glad you had a nice visit -- lovely image Nikki.

  3. Oh Nicki... That was beautiful!!! I sometimes wish things were slower paced... So glad you got to reconnect and Enjoy your family....

  4. Sounds like you had a great trip! I like the yellow of the tree against the pretty blue sky.

  5. What a neat trip - and to have your sister there too! Beautiful photo - love the color contrast as others have mentioned.
