For the past 5 years I’ve been having an affair. What started out as lust has escalated and I’m now deeply in love. There is an “us” and a “we”. Some may not consider her classically beautiful but she has great depth and inner beauty. She has so many layers and slowly reveals them one by one, leaving you wanting more every time. She knows how to let her hair down and have a good time. Furthermore she can more than hold up her end in a conversation. Despite being my bit on the side it didn’t stop me from showing her off to my parents, how could you not, she is the hostess with the mostess.
Melbourne I think I love you.
I love that you accessorize with trees
I love that breakfast is a huge event
I love that restaurants feel tired 6 months after being the new kid on the block
I love that the real you is discretely tucked away waiting to be found
I love that you’re so hip that even hipsters aren’t seen as being hip
I love that so many different cultures make you who you are
I love that you use a woman’s right to change her mind and regularly treat us to four seasons in one day
I love you
I have been in Australia long enough to know that I would be straying into some deep and murky waters if I were to declare Melbourne the best city, I will simply say that it’s a very nice fit for me and mine.
Where is home for you? What is it about home that makes you declare your love? Can any Melbournites add to my list?
