My travels began immediately after school on Friday, March 30, when the hubby and I, and another couple took off for Kansas City to watch two of our good friends get married the next day. We drove through Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and FINALLY into Kansas City... at about 3:00 a.m. And yeah, I am waaaaaay too old to travel through the middle of the night. But it was a really nice trip, despite being in a lack-of-sleep-fog the whole time. And like I always do, I find potential stories everywhere I go.
For instance, this beautiful mansion where the lovely couple exchanged vows. How atmospheric is this place? Can't you just imagine a historical romance set here? Or maybe a contemporary romantic suspense? I mean, really... the possibilities here are endless!
Our drive to Lynn's Paradise Cafe took us through the part of Louisville where "shotgun" houses abound. I loved looking at these houses, imagining the stories that have taken place there over the years. The neighborhoods had such a "family" feel, and again, potential stories brewed around in my mind as we drove.
