"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

14 July 2009

it's beginning to seem more real...

like he's really going to come back...
and it's not just some ambiguous reference point in the distant future.

Tonight I was pleasantly surprised to find
boyfriend online after his bedtime.

{he goes to bed early because he has work early in the morning}
I asked him why he was still awake and he replied with,
"Working on some tidbits for the trip downward."

It took me about a millisecond for my brain to process that.
"you mean the trip to provo? could he really mean that trip?"

Then I asked him if he was talking about the same trip my mind so desperately wanted it to be, and not some family vacation to some town South of theirs.
Indeed, it was that very trip here, and he told me about some of the plans he's made to visit people along the way.

he really will be back here next month.
Happy day.
