This guy and I went on a date last night. For the first time in over a year, just the two of us. We walked down old Route 66, took in the old neon lights and sites. We held hands and he opened doors for me. I took a few photos and we meandered the fun shops. It’s was perfect. Slowly but surely I’m finding myself pulling myself out and doing “normal” things that felt overwhelming and hard after the trauma. Tonight was fun and it felt so good to feel that again.

The Disney movie Cars was modeled after this cute little town in the middle of nowhere on Route 66.  We heard that the movie artists visited before they began working on their first renderings.  It’s so easy to see and feel how similar it is.
