I Heart-Sign Montana

Originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia I moved to western Montana in 1998 after my first year of college, which I attended right out of high school.  While the east coast will always be my native homeland and have special meaning, as the place where I was born and raised, Montana’s where my heart is.  Our humble university town of Missoula is a liberal oasis in our expansive Big Sky state.  Summer in Missoula involves floating the rivers, hiking, biking, camping, berry picking, festivals, music, local foods, gardening, and our 3 weekly Saturday outdoor markets for produce, food, and arts & crafts.  I love it here in Missoula and I am grateful for the opportunity to live here and call this home :)

Here’s a visual display of some of what I love about this area:

It’s a good practice to ramble about one’s own home locale and absorb the surroundings as one might while on a vacation.  To look upon those everyday places and occurrences with a fresh, new perspective (and maybe even check out some new spots!).  And it’s also a good practice to get in touch with and remember why it is we live where we live and what we appreciate about it.  I’d love to hear from you in the comments section about what it is you love about where you live!

    Thank you Esther! I’ve been really enjoying picture taking lately – and Montana abounds with good subject matter!
