I spent the four best years of my life in Norwood. And although people like to give it a hard time, the neighborhood will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s where my mom grew up. My grandpa used to frequent Norwood’s very own historical landmark, Dana Gardens – a bar that’s still (somehow) standing today. It’s where I made the best of friends, and shared many memories, drunken nights, basketball games, a special first date and more than my fair share of all-nighters. Let me stop here before I take a long stroll down memory lane…
Yesterday, my friend Annie and I went on a walk from my apartment in Norwood to Oakley Square. The weather was absolutely perfect. We stopped at a few parks along the way, and laughed as people drove by and stared at us like we were crazy. This whole posing by yourself thing…it doesn’t get any less awkward.
The warmer weather really lifted my mood after a long work day, and I can’t wait to spend more days outside. A little fresh air and sunshine are the perfect remedies to spending most of my days indoors. I don’t want to speak too soon, but I think spring is finally here. And I’m pretty excited about it.
