 Blog Everyday in February

Schwell, I live by the phrase Home is where the heart is. Cheesy, I know, but the saying makes me feel a little bit better when I don't feel at home where I live. 

Don't get me wrong, I love Georgia, but I never really felt at home in my town. Something for my entire life felt off. It's like I could never really picture myself living here if I hadn't been born here. I am glad had been though because it's such an amazing community to grow up because it's so safe, and I am so blessed to live here. But it's not a great to live when your in that awkward teenage/early adult phase. I don't know if it is like this everywhere else, but in high school especially, everyone knows everyone else's business even if you don't want to. Everyone jokingly calls in the Bubble, but it truly is a bubble, and I am not a huge fan of that feeling. 

University of Kentucky's campus! 
There has been one place I have felt at home though... and I am sure you all saw this coming. I definitely feel most at home while in Lexington. I seriously beg my mom to let me go there every spring break. While all my friends are at the beach, I am in Kentucky. #NotEvenSorry 

I first went to Lexington (a time that I can remember) when I was in eighth grade, and it was after they won the NCAA tournament for basketball. The minute we got there I fell in love and felt at home for the first time in a while. I went back last year, and I still pretty much in love. Hopefully, I am going again this year, and I will be heading over to Keeneland! (As long as my Spring Break doesn't get messed up due to snow days!)
