SPRINGFIELD, I’M PRETTY FOND OF YOU

Springfield.
A good “college town” but we’ll settle down somewhere else, thank you.
This was the Morris motto.
{Har. As if the words “settle down” ever occurred in the Morris lexicon.}
But recently our Saturday morning breakfast chats have been speckled with things we love about this city.  The coffee shops, the weather, our people, our church.
A casual, “Hey look at this loft.” every once in a while.
With the subtle, “This means we’ll be here another year.” behind it.
And the non-panic that follows the reality of being in Springfield one more year.
Seriously the coolest barber shop.
I felt manlier when walking out.
You win, Springfield, you win.
