i’ll admit this.
wherever i live is cool. that is not to say that because i am somewhere that is why that place is cool. it’s just i can’t possibly live somewhere that isn’t alive.
full disclosure, i love chicago. that will always be my city and only my city. i embraced it with everything i was when i was in my teens and 20’s. i grew up there and i drank that city in every morning and celebrated it every night. i never, ever took it for granted.
then the move to dallas. at first, i hated it. i didn’t know her and for that matter, didn’t know anyone else. luckily i had a job i loved and met my husband whom i love more. dallas is to rof just as i am to chicago. his passion for dallas transfered to me and we’ll always have the warm friendships we’ve made and we’ll always be texans.
but now we’re all about a new place.
this is a place that people have no problem feeling free to scrinch up their nose and say “EWWWW good luck to you” based on absolutely nothing. they’ve never been here. a place that does have it’s issues but more than that has a tenacity, passion and extraordinary beauty.
take a look at these pictures. know where we are now?
