Miriam's Favorite Thing About Boise

The people.

I cannot list them all, for there are hundreds. But the people of Boise, especially Cole Community Church, have been my friends and family for over eight years. We have shared secrets and love and food and laughter and I will always remember them.

*waves and sniffles to herself*



  1. #12 is the only one I've read. Guess are tastes run a might different.

  2. I used to read the Pooh books to my daughters when they were little. I just asked my younger daughter if she remembered that, and she said yes, it was soooo comforting. So Pooh's a great choice!

    Are you moving now? I know you were packing, and this post sounds like a goodbye to your town! Does this mean you're losing your favorite Pizza joint??
