This throwback Thursday is inspired by plans to possibly go back east in a couple months to visit friends and family. If you read my 6 things about me post yesterday, then you found out that I am originally from Upstate New York before becoming an Oregonian. Yesterday my birth mom texted me asking if I would be willing to meet her in New York at the end of October, so that’s something I am currently working out. Hopefully this trip will be something that Dan can join in on too, but for now we are just chatting about dates, times, tickets, and logistics.
Thinking about visiting my hometown and the place I spent the first 15 years of my life got me really excited! I miss so many things about where I grew up from the people, to the memories, and definitely the food! I already have my list of must go to places for my long weekend trip! Traveling back to New York will also let me spend time with not only my birth mom and her family, but also my birth dad who I have only had the opportunity to meet once. I think about them both often, and am thankful that I might get the opportunity to see them both.
I decided that since it’s throwback Thursday, I would share some pictures from one of my last trips to New York almost 5 years ago! This was the trip where I met my birth farther for the first time and was able to spend some great quality time with my mom’s side of the family. Here’s some of the reason’s I’m excited about the possibility of this trip coming to fruition!
