People or place? That’s been the dilemma of 2014. After coming within weeks of heading to Monterey with our earthly belongings, an opportunity came along to stay close to those who hold our hearts. Now that the decision has sunk in, it makes perfect sense. Gabe will be within a short drive. My sister and I can meet for our lunches. Dear friends will still be able to wander in and out my front door on a whim. No, we will not walk beside the ocean listening to seals bark, taking in jaw dropping views. I will long for escape come January, and if all goes as planned, embark on new adventures around the globe. And then I will return home to Granville. To the people and place we’ve chosen. And this feels right for right now.
