can you be in love, even though you've never "met"?
some days i feel like my heart is in the west coast, but how can this be when i've never been? i haven't stepped any further west than my good 'ol state of MI...the east coast are where my roots have been planted. maybe its not even the west itself, maybe i'm just in love with the "idea" of it.
ever since i was little i remember wanting the california winds to whisk me away. i've mentioned this before, but i've always been a little "hippy-ish" ever since i can remember. when i was in junior high and my parted hair ringleted down to my waist, i was deemed "the flower child". i love the freedom vibe. the culture. the love. no worries.
i have since fallen out of this mode in a sense. i get so wrapped up with school and work, it sucks. i remember when corey first met me, he said one thing that drew him was how carefree i was. i want to regain this "less-stress" mode once more. i'm not advocating that i will pack my bags, drop everything and move to california...but i do know that something must be done to get rid of this mid-winter michigan rut!
i'm longing for sunshine...
