lauraraeamosI don't want to start back to Virginia today. Virginia is where my husband has a really great job and where my child goes to school, but I always knew that it wasn't my home. My heart does not live there. Maybe that's also why we never bought a house there, because we always kind of knew we didn't belong. Maybe that's why we're always traveling, because our hearts are restless. I always thought my heart belonged to Michigan, but I'd never been to Maine before this week. Every place we go to, we do this, we think we want to stay there forever. New places are shiny and interesting, but I know my heart belongs to the mountains and to the sea, and here I can stand on the rocks and see the wide curve of the ocean all at once. We stopped at this little lobster stand on the side of some road, and the guy at the register asked us, "Are you local?" Like he couldn't tell if we were tourists or not. Maybe it's a sign. Maybe our traveling hearts will always feel restless, but when it's time to come home, I would love for home to look like this. #Maine #notallthosewhowanderarelost
