Saturday I went to Richmond to visit Emily, the beautiful lady in the first photo. Over the weekend I discovered a few things I'd like to share with you. In just two days I fell in love faster and harder than I had thought possible. Ever since my first visit to Richmond (December 2009), I had known I liked the area but it wasn't until this weekend that I knew I loved it.
I fell in love with Emily's townhouse with high, chipped ceilings, white walls, wooden floors, open windows, and simple, hippy decor. I fell in love while walking to the coffee shop and to the restaurant where we ate lunch. I fell in love with the brick buildings lining the streets where every porch held a mishmash of furniture and empty wine bottles and beer cans. I fell in love with this city and now I know somethings. I know that in a year I will graduate with a B.A. in History. As soon as possible after that I will be moving to Richmond to live in the Fan (hopefully with Emily). I know this to be true. For now though, I'm tired.
