As you guys know, my mom came up to Seattle for a visit this past weekend! It was so great to see her and to just talk and be in eachother's presence.We did a lot of general catching up as well as some shopping for random things needed for dorm life. I also took her to some of my favorite places around Fremont, which was cool because I felt a little bit like an expert - guiding her around with all my expanse of knowledge. ;) We went to a couple vintage stores, Milstead, the Fremont Troll (a definite touristy place, but cool nonetheless!) and wrapping up the evening we went to see Wreck-it Ralph which was a fantastic movie, one that I definitely recommend.
Lately I've sort of been going back and forth about wanting to be back home vs. wanting to continue being independent and exploring this new city. Of course I'm going to be doing both whether I want to or not, I think I'm just examining how I feel about each one. Seeing my mom made me miss my family and talking with them every day, but also it made me glad to be here on my own. I'm not really sure. I guess this is all part of the away-from-home process, but what is home exactly anyway? I already know that I love Seattle more than Novato or Northern California. But "home" isn't limited to the location of where you are - it depends on the people and the emotions associated with it.
"Growing up" is weird. What does it even mean or how do you deal with it? These are musings that have sort of been hitting me lately. Anyway, enjoy these photos! See you soon! xxoo
