My husband and I haven’t lived in Maryland for over five years, so it was nice to travel back for a women’s conference a few days ago. As we traversed the familiar terrain, memories from long ago filled my mind. A particular street reminded me of my long commutes to work. An old building triggered thoughts of early dates with my husband. The restaurants reminded me how much I missed the crab cake. It’s interesting how one sight or experience can remind you of another.
