July 16 was our first day in Erie, Pennsylvania: my mom’s hometown. My siblings and I have grown up hearing stories from Mom’s childhood and this was the day that each of those stories became connected to a place. It was something else to visit Mom’s roots. I personally think it really cool that we got to see where she lived, went to school, and church. Where Mom graduated High School and Aunt Barbie got married. Where she and her sisters played, slept, ate, and fought. The whole day was very nostalgic and I loved that.
Next stop, West Virginia!
