The other night we went downtown to get pizza.
I have lived in this area almost my entire life.
I have seen this downtown area change from the 70s to the 80s to the 90s to today.
I have memories of this downtown area that I think may cloud my view.
Maybe it was the Christmas lights,
maybe it was the spirit of the season,
but as Jason drove down the familiar streets
I saw our downtown area with new eyes.
It was glittering.
It was beautiful.
It was quaint.
It was so cozy and homey...and so comforting.
