When I first Google Mapped this, I thought Google had malfunctioned, & it wasn’t rendering. But nope, Nebraska just looks like this. Ironically, the midpoint between Bella and I — between her home in Richmond and mine in Hercules — is BEAVER CITY, Nebraska. We decided our three month escape plan will take us to Boulder, CO instead. I don’t think either one of us would flourish in a town without a nail salon.

Does you liking that mean you wanna explore sometime?
Asketh - subject-to-criticism

I’d be down, especially if you feel like venturing before summer gives way. Any places on your local travel wish list?

Excuse me for a while,
While I’m wide eyed, and I’m so damn caught in the middle
