Last week, I started a series called "Where We Live," inspired by my trip to Long Island to visit a dear friend. She had no idea how cute her neighboring town of Babylon was until I pointed out the 500 million charming things within a three block radius, and then she was like: "I am definitely moving here." (And guess what? She is. No joke.) The idea behind this series is that sometimes when we've lived in the same place for so long, we don't really see it anymore, and sometimes stepping back and looking at things through fresh, appreciative eyes can be so enlightening and cathartic. Would love to see where you guys live and what stands out the most and why. Send pics to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post them here in the coming weeks. Have a fantastic weekend! xx
First up is Becky Robbins of Hudson + Daughter. Thanks so much for kicking off this series, Becky:
"This is a photo of the laundromat on Main Street in Dobbs Ferry, New York, where I live. My family recently bought our first house here after a decade of renting all over the place, so it's nice to finally have a place we can call our "hometown." I like that we're able to walk from our home to shops, restaurants, and to the train station. It's what makes our experience in Dobbs feel less like "the 'burbs" and more like the connected, pedestrian-friendly village that it is. I hope all the vintage signage like the one on this laundry bar sticks around for a while."
