These are all on Center Street and University Avenue. Provo is the perfect little place.
But, THIS. This is my very favorite part of the whole city. Velour Live Music Gallery. Some of the most incredible music I've ever had the privilege to hear has come out of Provo and, more specifically, Velour. It's where I feel so at home. Everything is right when you're inside this small, magical part of the world.
Speaking of Velour and local music in general, one of my very favorite artists (believe me, the absolute definition of artist) and former neighbors is playing two album release shows this coming week. I'm heartbroken that I can't go. Watching Joshua James play a live show is something you'll never forget. He just dives right into your heart and soul and it's really an experience that will change you. Absolutely brilliant.
I know this post has been so long and drawn out but I just have one more thing for you. Just one more.
This boy right here is the most important thing in my life.
We've been together for nearly a year, almost four months of that has been spent 125 miles apart. He takes lots of pictures for me and dyes my hair and has the wonkiest knees I've ever seen and refuses to take a serious picture. But that's why I love him.
There's a good chance he'll be spending the next two years away from me in some fancy foreign country and I'll be here, or wherever I am, doing whatever I'm doing, figuring my life out. I'm so happy for him and I can't wait to see where life takes each of us, separately and together in the future.
Anyways, here are just a few pictures from our Provo photo adventure. He took the majority of these, because he's smart and talented and snazzy and I absolutely adore him.
