Walk around yo' city

I live in beautiful and historic Downtown Saint Augustine, which (fun fact) is the city I've dreamt of living in ever since I was in 7th grade. I am a resident of Lincolville which is filled with a TON of history. (Another fun fact) Martin Luther King, Jr. once walked the streets of Lincolville as a peace rally. I have so much history right at my door step, yet I don't acknowledge it very often.

The other day, I took a stroll around town with two friends. We started off by going to get a cup of coffee which continued into trespassing into a building and trying to access their roof ( luck...needed a key) then went into Flagler and tried accessing the solarium (also no luck...there was an event up there that night) and then it ended going to the top of the Lightner Museum and watching the sky turn colors.

I guess the point of this is just a reminder to acknowledge your surroundings. Something as a simple walk through the neighborhood reminded me of the reason why I chose to live in St. Augustine and why I continue to. I love this town far beyond it's history. I don't think I will ever love a city more than my beloved St. Augustine. I have grown and learned so much during my time here. I cherish this town far beyond my words could explain. It is humbling to me the thought that living in this town was never really apart of my plan but more of the Lord's plan for me. I was meant to live here. My heart will always be in St. Augustine.
