Galesburg For the Weekend

I was able to steal away for a quick weekend trip to visit dear Lexie in Galesburg this past weekend, and I honestly can't remember the last time I've had a vacation this good. Between walking my favorite streets, making an impromptu trip to Iowa City, visiting the antique mall, drinking delicious coffee at Kaldi's (not the Bean Hive), and playing catch-up with Lexie and my art history professor, I couldn't have asked for a better time away from home. I came back renewed and well-rested, grateful to have found such an amazing friend in Lexie and happy that almost nothing about the old 'Burg had changed.

    1. I had the best time. You have no idea how proud I am of you to see that you are thriving in your home there. It's nice to know I always have a place to stay in a town that I hold so dear.
