Things Are Sweeter in Tennessee

Today is sunny and warm, and I am just a drive away from most of the people I love. I get to smell the scent of New England air and listen to the sounds of familiar laughs, and drive down streets that I could probably drive with my eyes closed. I get to bounce through the morning rush, and I get to hold doors for people, and be okay with the fact that most won't say thank you. I get to see MA and NH license plates everywhere I go, and feel comfortable that mine fits right in. This is my home, this is where I belong, yet I can't help but miss where I was last week.

I miss Tennessee and everything about it. I miss the clean, calm breezes and the laid back feeling. I miss the accents and the fact that people there actually care how my day is going. I miss that no one is pushing to get in front of the next person. I miss the clarity and the way my brain works while I'm there. I miss the comfort. I miss the excitement and the talent and the country music spilling out of every bar. I miss 2 for 1 beers. But most of all, I miss my sister. It's so hard being away from my best friend.




But I love the way I fit right in too, like I'm a Tennesee regular. Part of my heart will always be there. Nashville, can I come back soon??
