In the first episode and throughout the series, it is very clear that she loved her first childhood home which was very close to the woods, miles away from anyone. She loved adventure and going out exploring with her beloved companion Twig. She also loves drawing certain things she comes across in her sketchbook.

After her mother Johanna put the raven outside without knowing it was the raven the parade was dedicated to and tells Hilda that the parade is about a great raven (though Johanna didn't know that the raven she put outside was the specific raven), Hilda tells her mom that the raven inside there house was probably the specific raven the parade was referring to.
