These beautiful souls made my first night in Indy the best homecoming a girl could have imagined.
As we swayed to the smooth tunes of #yachtrockrevue with the back drop of a city I called home for 20+ years and fireworks lighting up the night sky, I could feel my heart swell to the size of my smile. (Yea, THAT big.)
I totally get the irony of my return. My whole life I kept "waiting" to move out of Indiana. Always feeling like there was something more I needed to experience... someplace else I needed to be.
I knew I wanted to... needed to... move out of state but there was never any energy behind the desire.
It was just a half-assed wish I'd cast out in the hopes that something or someone would lure me away.
So I waited... and waited... and waited.
Until finally, one day almost 4 years ago, I decided that it was time.
I decided that there would be no better time than the moment I was in.
I decided that I was ready to go, so I went.
The timing was perfect. I can't think of a better place to have quarantined during covid than the #blueridgemountains .
I can't think of a more perfect place to live.... the mountains, nature, waterfalls, outdoor activities, true acceptance and kind souls.
And even with all that... maybe because of all that... I realized that it's not so much about where I live but who I surround myself with.
That even living in paradise wasn't enough without the people I love the most nearby... within hugging distance. #family
That the place I'd spent my whole life wanting to leave was the exact place I couldn't wait to get back to... this time by choice.
I wouldn't change a thing about my time away. It was exactly what I needed to fall back in love with this amazing city... the beautiful souls who live there... and myself.
There's nothing quite like coming home to truly realize how much you've grown. #blessed
