This is Wherever Wednesday

Welcome to This is Wherever Wednesday (um...Friday)!  SORRY I'M LATE.    Here's why:

  1. May was CRAZY!  A good kind of crazy, yes.  My birthday, our anniversary, Mother's Day, and all sorts of end of the school year activities all happen this month.
  2. For the last two weeks I've been sick as a dog.  
  3. This was the last week of school and I've been going to school stuff with my kids nearly every day of it.  

So anyways, THANK YOU to everyone who posted last week.  I enjoyed every single post.  Here are a few of my faves:  

  • Crazy Running Girl shared a post about her first six months in Austin, Texas.  She moved there from Brooklyn, NY.  I always say that when people move to a new place they notice things about it that long time locals just take in stride, and this post is a perfect example of that.  Loved seeing Austin through a New Yorkers' eyes.  (You might also enjoy her 10 Things about NYC post, and for the same reason.)
  • Bailey from Let Birds Fly shared a lot of great posts...but my favorite was a post about Lost Maples State Park, TX.  I loved all the beautiful pictures, and wished I had known about this place while my mom was still here.  She was from New England and would have loved the reminder of home--I wish I could have taken her there.  
  • Tayla of Grits, Grace and Gardening shared a beautiful comparison of Spring and Fall in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

So, if you missed any of those last week I hope you'll take the time to check them out now.

And, if you're new to Wherever Wednesday and are wondering what's this all about...every month we share those little moments that really show the character of the places we live:  your "This is Wisconsin,  Boston,  India,  WHEREVER" moments.     If you're still a little uncertain what that means, this post over at Budget Blond will help you out.  And, though it's not required, I'd love if you would grab the This is Wherever button on the sidebar and share it in your post or somewhere else on your blog!  

The linky is open all month!  Thanks for participating!
