Things I miss...

 I miss sushi at Akai Hana in Carrboro
 I miss Spiced Chai ice storms from the cafe outside of Nordstrom--heaven in a plastic cup--all for four dollars!
 I miss hiking at the Eno river--hills and a creek...and rocks, and clear river water
 I miss Wavelengths hair salon on Ninth St. in Durham..and my favorite girl, Kate!! Haven't seen her in a year and a half--and it shows, trust me. :(
 I miss the Whole Foods in Durham that was just a zip away from our house...a zip--and nothing cures PMS like some expensive, rare, exotic organic veggies...I mean really..
 I miss Lara Bars--would you believe, you cannot buy these in Beaufort County...there are barely any in the big college town of Greenville either..I mean there are some, but there are two flavors to choose from.

I miss bubble teas from my favorite little Vietnamese restaurant in Durham, that is probably closed now.
:(
I miss all of these so badly...and really --we do not have money or time for me to zip to Durham to satisfy my cravings...

Would I leave Washington and living at home for all of these?
Of course not!
But let me tell you, this place is not big on variety of consumer goods...You better like the stuff here b/c it takes time and gas and money to go elsewhere to get different stuff...
And there is not a lot to choose from here...
I mean they have even changed our Dairy Queen to some other weird ice cream place--that is really not appealing to me...Not that Dairy Queen really was either...

I am so impressed! Your photos are all in the right place, your post is so nicely reminiscent... And hey! My mom's bro is the one that bought the old dairy queen, and named it something else. Saw them talking about it on fb...
