I Left My Heart in Annapolis

Photobucket


Considering how badly I was dying to move back to California at the beginning of this year, I think I've surprised myself by how often I find myself missing Maryland. I was getting more than a bit nostalgic this morning browsing through some photos of our life in Annapolis. Even though I hated our apartment most of the time, I miss it. And that's not all-- I miss my work friends, crab dip, giant margaritas at El Toro Bravo, "our bench" by the State House where B and I shared so many long talks and ice cream. I miss living in a walking city, and the view of the Navy Chapel from our backyard. Deep down, I know I don't regret moving back to the West Coast. It's just that Annapolis was the first place that felt like home to me, except, well... home. Anyways, here's my little tribute collage to Annapolis, or at least the stereotypical Annapolis girl! ;)

Do you have a city besides your hometown that fills you with nostalgia? Where is your second home?

  1. I definitely miss living in the tiny town where my husband and I went to college - we complained about it when we lived there, but we definitely both miss it often!

    1. I guess if you think about it, the places we live during those stages of life in which we're really growing serve to shape us so much as people, how could we not miss them? (No matter how much we resented them at one time!)

  3. We are planning a trip to Annapolis once sprint football starts again. My cousin is in the Naval academy there and plays on the sprint football team so we are excited to go see him.

    1. Awesome! That is just an impressive accomplishment to attend the Naval Academy. I'm sure your cousin will be happy to show you around, but let me know if you want any Annapolis tips/suggestions before your trip! :)
