Showin’ Some Love for Des Moines

09

Do you ever get hit with a bout of nostalgia, seemingly out of no where? That’s been me today. Maybe its because its “Throwback Thursday” and my news feed is littered with college pics, or maybe its just because I miss my best friends from Drake. Whatever the reason, today’s ensemble seemed quite fitting.

This Raygun tshirt brings me back to the good old days … where life was simple, Drake was pretty awesome, and Des Moines was the greatest city in the world.

I was telling someone today that “I wish I could go back and tell my college self — ENJOY THIS WHILE IT LASTS!”  But you can’t, she’s right. That’s just kinda how life goes. Those memories will be just that … memories.

Clothes can be just as comforting as memories though, whether its a pair of well-worn jeans or an ultra-soft tshirt. They wrap you in a comforting feeling of familiarity and love.

So today I’m throwin’ it back to the best years … the years that make me smile … rockin’ a tee that pretty much sums up the greatest four years of my life.

So while we can’t really go back to the so-called “good ol’ days”, we’ll always have reminiscing … and that favorite tee … to remind us of some pretty great times. Hell yes.
