I had just booked my ticket for New Jersey and I am beyond excited and honestly thrilled. The moment I booked my trip I honestly felt like I could breathe. Like a weight has been lifted off of me. I am originally from New Jersey. Born and raised. I moved to Texas almost 7 or 8 years ago now and sometimes I really regret it.

I moved here for a change. To get away from something I thought I hated and needed to be away from and now honestly I find myself wanting to go back. I will often have dreams of running away, back to New Jersey, or taking long road trips that lead me there. The air is just different. The people are for sure different… not at all saying I like them, but I do miss everything New Jersey has to offer. I miss the birds chirping super early in the morning as the air feels brisk and the fog of the fields fill us around. I miss it so very much.

When I think about how much I miss it, how I regret coming here, I start to think about Brittany, Aydin, our families, my nieces, just the people in general. It’s never about the food or the things here, its just about the people. I just need to figure out how to get everyone to agree to move with me.

Sadly I’m not sure how well that plan will work.

For now I guess I will take the few flights I can to go back home and enjoy the beauty.

With love,
Elih
