My Favorite Places

Random 5 Friday is a weekly meme over at A Rural Journal.

Today I want to tell you about my five favorite places!

1. Pine Haven Christian Assembly, specifically anywhere in or near the bay.  I have had incredible conversations with both God and friends here.

2. My family’s farm in Kimball, Minnesota.  This is where I grew up and where my parents still live.

5. My apartment, which we lovingly refer to as Cair Paravel.  The stories those walls could tell!
