We spent the day Saturday shopping downtown at the most adorable little boutiques I've ever seen. I bought a few outfits for upcoming wedding showers, and we even found a dress for my grandmother to wear to the wedding (75 days to go!). I love the occasional get away back to my original hometown, but if I were to be honest, I could never see myself settling down there anymore.
You see, I like a fast pace lifestyle. I like meeting up for happy hour after work. I like having multiple malls within a fifteen mile radius from my house. These are all things that Florence is most definitely not known for. In fact, I think they have one bar in the entire city. One. Even more confusing, there is a fairly large university in the middle of the city. What the hell do these kids do for fun?!
At one point I saw my life panning out in the small town of Florence, Alabama, but these days I can't see Steven and I starting our life and raising our kids anywhere except for Birmingham. It's my home, and I love everything about it.
