Nearly seven years ago I packed up my life and moved 3,000 miles away from my friends and family to go to college. YOLO wasn't a thing then, but I think the guiding principle behind my move as similar. This was the big defining moment everyone talks about all your life and I wasn't going to waste it. I was throwing caution to the wind, following my dreams, and making a big jump.
Well I've graduated college and been in the real world a while now and I have to admit to a little disappointment. I didn't get fabulously homesick, I didn't magically become a proper southern belle. Sure the whole town essentially shuts down if there is any hint of snow and sometimes this humidity stuff gets so thick I'm not sure I will be able to breathe. But life in North Carolina really isn't so different from life at home.
What I really miss is all the awesome produce from home. I got lucky and was able to visit during asparagus season. But as much as I love watermelon, I am wishing from a huge bowl of fresh off the tree cherries today!
What is your favorite food that's hard to find away from home?
