My mom’s in town for a few days so we took a walk around the neighborhood to visit some of my favorite spots. (Don’t worry, mine is 100% dairy-free sorbet… and it was good!)
It’s funny to walk through a place you know well with someone from out of town—you start to see the same old street through new eyes. Stuff you pass every day suddenly becomes novel.
The stores you’ve been in a million times are filled with brilliant new products. And maybe the best pillows you’ve ever seen.
The little things you took for granted suddenly appear brighter, more alive.
And the tiniest details reveal themselves—if you take the time to look.
You start to see all the incredible possibilities for even the most mundane, everyday objects.
I recommend taking a walk in your neighborhood with an out-of-towner as soon as possible.
