This may not seem like a big deal, but first time I’ve had a license plate other than a North Carolina one.

I love this place.

Slowly but surely getting connected. Tonight I will be attending a town council meeting.

Tomorrow it’s weeding the grounds of the local community health center.

Next week it’s dinner with some fabulous women who grew up here.

Twelve step program, the local gym, the one and only yoga studio, the post office and Porter’s Grocery Store have all become places of connection.
