Opposite World

Happy Day 34
After growing up there and then having lived elsewhere for over a decade, I am always a little struck when we go back by just how flat central IIllinois is. I didn't appreciate it at the time but I honestly think now that the prairie is just as beautiful as the mountains we're now surrounded by, for all the ways it contrasts. Maybe partly because it will always be home to family, friends, countless memories and all that love. A great visit was had, can't wait to take Ida there and show her where her mom and dad are from. Technically she's already been twice, but she couldn't see much from her vantage at the time. :)
