Ashland, Virginia –The Center of the Universe.

Through the Lens Thursday

Home, sweet home.

This weekend I’m heading home to Ashland, Virginia to attend one of my oldest and dearest friend’s wedding. Even though my hometown is only 1.5 hours away from D.C., I know I don’t make it home quite enough!

There are many things I miss every day about this small, sleepy train town like my Sunday dinners with my mom, afternoon ‘tinis with my favorite Aunts (and pups),  waving at every passerby as I rock on my front porch, hearing the train roll by as I fall asleep, snuggling up with my household pets, and visiting with high school friends….just to name a few :).

I still find it quite humorous Ashland’s tagline is “The Center of the Universe”, and I can’t help but crack a smile every time I drive by our town welcome sign. As I’ve grown older though, I’ve realized when I come home I do feel just that way, in the center of my universe.

Needless to say, I’m super excited to see my family, friends, and somehow squeeze in an amusement park visit to Kings Dominion on Sunday.

Here are a few night photos of my home town:
