Missing my home

Okay... so I (we) have been missing home rather badly the last month or so. There is just something about incredibly gloomy weather all the time that tends to put you in a fog of depression. It is not that I don't love it here in the Northwest, because I do...we do. It is beautiful (most of the time), and nature abounds. The people are generally friendly and welcoming as well.

But, there is just something about home--you know... the place you grew up... are familiar with. Home is where the relationships you nurtured since childhood still lay un-kept and wanting.

For those of you who do not know where we, the Hecks, came from, we are from SLO (San Luis Obispo) county on the beautiful Central Coast of California. I have included some pictures of our home area so you can get an idea of what our hearts, eyes, and winter skin has been longing for.

P.S. Please don't read this as negative. I don't mean it to be. It is just hard for this California boy to feel at peace in the gloom I know call home.

Blessings on you all.
