I’ve lived in the Midwest for most of my life and it still surprises me sometimes at how I haven’t explored some places yet. Saint Louis isn’t very far and yet this weekend was the first time I got to visit. I was able to surprise the BF 100%. He had no idea where we were going or what we were doing (let alone that I had planned on meeting up with some of his family). It was a great weekend with perfect spring weather.
Saint Louis is known for its arch, its blues, and the Cardinals. Although it’s still spring training we still got to see some games on TV. Kansas City blacks out the Cards spring training here… something about having two teams in the same state makes people a little crazy. We spent some time by the mighty Mississippi River and the Arch. We actually stayed just a couple blocks from the arch so we were able to see it in all it’s shiny glory (and almost everything was within walking distance). Now the blues in this town is of a caliber you have to see to believe. Absolutely amazing shows in the small dive bar we found on our first night in town. I can’t wait to go back.
Overall the trip was grand but, as always, the company was the best part. Sharing good times with good people makes everything better. I’ve been blessed with such great people in my life (both my family and his). Spending time together with the BF always makes separating harder but it also makes us stronger.
