home away from home

i read a guest post that my friend wrote today over at a blog i stalk and it filled me with vacation-y feelings... but of a special kind. the kind about returning somewhere you've been many times throughout your life. that feeling of familiarity in a place far away from home.

for her, it's land in montana and after reading her description of her childhood memories there i could practically taste the fresh air of the great outdoors and hear the crackle of a campfire.

and it got me thinking of the place on the globe that's like that for me. where we went when i was a little girl and returned to time and time again – rancho las cruces in baja california.

as much as i love traveling to and discovering new places, there's nothing more comforting and special than returning to a place that feels like home.

sharing that place with chooch – and for the second year in a row, bonzo – and creating memories of our own is nothing short of amazing.

bonzo came home a smidge bi-lingual, too:
¡buenos dias!
¡gracias!
¡adios!

and his very favorite:
¡pan y mantequilla!

  1. gasp! how sweet you are. thank you! and these photos are so, so evocative... how lucky that you went there as a child, and are now going as a mama. I adore these photos, especially the one of you and Bonz -- beautiful!

    (for the record you can't beat pan y mantequilla)
