I moved to Providence, Rhode Island in January 2005. It was an impulsive decision– in November, my best friend and I began talking about leaving Indiana for someplace else, and by the first week of the new year we were in New England. The move was a bit of a culture shock for a girl who’d never lived outside of the Midwest– the winding streets and densely-packed city, the lack of greenery, not to mention those strange new terms for things— shopping carriages, jimmies, cabinets, bubblers. I got used to it, though, and eventually learned to love so many things about living in Providence. In no particular order, here are a few of the things about living there that I miss the most.

Looking back over these pictures, I think I’m overdue for a visit.
