It's almost like a dream. Like I never left Chicago.
I'm home now and after getting back from my returning flight this evening, I have to keep telling myself that my time in Lexington was very REAL.
I got to meet my budding boyfriend's coworkers, his friends and members of the community. We explored the city, cooked for each other, and he even taught me how to play pool at a dive bar late into the night!
We still have things we both need to work on but now we can face those things together.
It seems like a world away in Kentucky. A place to escape my troubles for a bit. Nothing else matters when I'm in his arms and just knowing he's waiting for me is enough. No wonder I wish I never left there.
One day--when the time is right--I won't.
Until then, my southern honey.....
