I spent more of my childhood in Roanoke, VA than in any other city so I consider that my hometown. When you grow up in such a beautiful town, it is easy to forget how pretty it is until you move away. I went to undergraduate college in Harrisonburg, VA, which like Roanoke, is also in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It wasn’t until I moved to Raleigh, NC that I realized mountains weren’t everywhere. It is always nice to visit your hometown but with this scenery, going home is so much sweeter.
