Jennifer Blake: the house that built me.

the house that built me.

March 10, 2012


"I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
                                                                 This brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here it's like I'm someone else.
I thought that maybe I could find myself.
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave.
Won't take nothin but a memory,
From the house that built me."



There is nothing better then venturing back to the place where you grew up, and getting wrapped up in the comfort of familiarity and love. Aaron and I went home for a few days this week (sorry for the blog hiatus!), and it was absolutely lovely. 
I got to sleep in my bed, cuddle with my pup, play with my handsome little cat, and had mother daughter time! We went home to take care of some wedding stuff, which was also fun! 
We hung out with friends. Visited our wedding venue. Registered at Target. Went to our favorite mexican place. Had smoothies with an old teacher. Enjoyed warm weather. Strolled around Boston, starring at the eery clouds last night. Started to knit a blanket. 


It was the perfect trip home, certainly not long enough! Now we are back to the grind of school and life.

  2. Looks like it was a great trip. I'm loving following along with your wedding planning. I *might* be living vicariously through you!! :)
