I live in South Carolina, and I'm okay with that. It wasn't my plan, but what 21-year-old makes plans that actually materialize? After college in Montréal, I was happy to come home for what I thought would be a year or two, but it turned into nearly twenty. Things happen (hello there, husband and kids!).
I don't look back often, but when I do, my thoughts turn to bagels, as they did the other day when I was walking to my oldest son's school to drop off a forgotten lunch. This time was different: I didn't just wax nostalgic, I whipped out my smart phone and called a couple of Montréal bagel shops.
