Packs in tow, Lexi and Leroy walk to the shelter on Rosemary Street for breakfast. "We're celebrating our anniversary," Leroy, 26, jokes. They wear their groovy urban style with confidence, revealed as they pose for pictures -- mouths agape, tongues out, arms gnarled around each other. I ask the couple if they envision life outside Chapel Hill, and Leroy says with open arms and head cocked: "Whatever the world brings me."
Lexi, 19, is a bit more risk averse: "I can't imagine being anywhere else. It would be weird living anywhere else but here."
