I’m happy in Utica. Everyone I’ve met so far seems super nice, produce in our local market looks good, there are local farms-a-plenty if I’m feeling jiggy, a whole ski resort in a neighborhood park up the street, a zoo, cute restaurants of every sort, a health food store, a decent Target and a TJ Maxx. What else shall I want? After ten months here, it turns out there are a few things I miss. Here are my first 5 (of 10).
Every once in a while, I drive by the TJ Maxx in Consumer Square in New Hartford and sigh. How I miss wandering up and down the aisles, shopping for just a few more throw pillows, and dresses...and...I just really miss that store.
