My Favorite Place in The World
Ever since I was in diapers my family has been coming to Lake Tahoe. My grandpa built his cabin in Truckee and soon after my parents got a cabin there. ever since it has had the biggest place in my heart. Truckee is where I have some of my fondest memories. Sleepovers with cousins, my aunt making the best bacon in the mornings that I called her TT bacon, playing at the lake all day, bear sitting, fort building, learning to ski, breakfast at Coffee And, staying up late making s’ mores. Man, I just get the best feeling when I think about lake Tahoe.
As we grew older we still would go as a family all the time. My dad and I would backpack up in the mountains and on the Tahoe Rim Trail. And I grew an appreciation not just for the memories it’s given me but for the love it’s filled me with. This place has a way of hitting me at my core and filling me with love. With love for nature, for silence & solitude, for my family, and for just getting another day on this beautiful earth.
I can’t tell you how much joy it brings me to share this love now with my family. It truly is my favorite place in the world and I’m so grateful for it. I can only hope that Ford will feel that gratitude as well. Do you guys have a place like this, that just fills you with love and gratitude? I’d love to hear where that place is!
