I grew up in Apartment 5E. I’ve said more than once, but it wasn’t until I was in my twenties that I actually saw grass that didn’t come in a baggie! Being in the ‘burbs is a crazy departure for me.
This week marks 21 years of our living in the Mt. Carmel section of Hamden. It’s not only the first house I’ve owned, it’s the first house I’ve ever lived in!
I drive to work driving behind Sleeping Giant State Park. Maybe it’s not the prettiest place in the world, but it’s on the list.
I drive down a road canopied by mature hardwood trees. Off to my right are open fields. There are a few horse stables. It’s pretty idyllic and nothing like what I was used to growing up.
