I found a memory card from last summer’s trip to New Jersey. I had a good time while I was home. I went to the beach, hung out by the pool, and ate funnel cake on the boardwalk. I also took a joyride with my brother and sister through our old neighborhood of Elmora Hills. A section of Elizabeth, NJ. It’s where my three siblings and I were all born and spent our early years. I think growing up here had a lot to do with my love for older homes. I was so lucky to be surrounded by such beauty. When I think about my time there, my mind is flooded with some of the happiest memories of my life. I cherish those moments, and I enjoy driving through every now and again. I guess I’m just nostalgic like that!
I love to observe all the detail, age, and character each of these homes exhibits. Think about all the stories they could tell. I just snapped a few pictures as we drove around, I hope you enjoy!
I look forward to the day I can show my children the hill that Aunt Lisa and mommy used to sled down… in the summer. Yeah, we did that.
