I have only been home for Homecoming a few times since graduating high school years and years ago.
Once you have a 4 year old who loves parades, things change.
I was at home last year with a new born little babe and Ollie got to spend a few days with his Grandma and Grandpa on the farm. He had the taste of his first parade – and his first tootsie roll 🙂 (He leads somewhat of a sheltered life when it comes to sugar).
This year we decided to make it a family occasion and all came home for a few days to celebrate the Homecoming festivities. There’s something about being at home that’s makes you feel a little nostalgic.
No recipes today. I am taking a break; having a tootsie roll – or 2 and watching a football game in the great outdoors.
