robert and i spent the day in lexington on saturday. a place with people! after being quarantined in our cottage after my bout with a cold that just wouldn't quit, to be among the living again was a sheer blessing.
the thing i love about lexington is this: it is frozen in time.
it's like the downtown portion of main street that's filled with old storefronts that, when the sun hits them just right as it sets, fill you with nostalgia and make you want to walk among them for hours.
but the whole town is a little main street. with old evening gown and tuxedo rental shops, reminiscent of a time when people got dressed up more. an old hardware store right in the middle with millions of aisles filled with little knick knacks and farm tools only desired by red-faced men in overalls.
i swear, there are times i wish the whole world was a main street, and all we did was hop from one cute little shop to the next as we lived out our days among the concrete.
but life's pretty sweet, if not downright delectable, where the concrete ends.
but to sit at an old pharmacy soda shop and sip a sour limeade isn't a shabby way to spend a saturday morning, that's for certain.
