And I’m just a tiny bit homesick. I have insomnia, and I miss my bed. We brought our own comforter and pillows, which helps a lot, but it’s still not the same.
The Bordeaux here is really good though. Good wine. Good company. Today should be a lot of fun. I just wish I could get some sleep.
This bridge always brings up a very specific memory for me. When traveling on 70 East, you cross this bridge to get into Boone County. Back in 2002, I spent the better part of three days stuck in a moving truck with G and our mini dachshund puppy on our move from Los Angeles to Columbia, MO. I remember crying when I saw this bridge because I knew we were almost home. I knew our good friends were impatiently awaiting our arrival, and that a new chapter of my life was about to begin. I get all the feels whenever I cross this bridge.
In Sweet Springs, MO. I’m a bit tipsy. No worries…D is driving.
We’re gonna hit it hard this weekend.
I couldn’t pass through Columbia with my boo and not stop here. Oh the memories!
Our dream of playing the gas station slots we found here five years ago has finally come true.
I won a dollar. Yessssssss.
The drive down to Nashville with my bestie will probably end up being my favorite part of the entire trip. We took our time, making stops at various places. We laughed pretty much the entire six hours. I love this lady. ❤️
Don’t worry I’m not the one driving.
We’re about 22 miles to the Illinois border.
I’m so ready to see that Welcome to Missouri sign. Just 149 miles to go.
We rented a mini van so that Bismarck could have an entire row to himself, but he prefers to be close to his pack.
I love him a ridiculous amount. I’m happy we brought him with us, despite the rough start. He’s part of the family, after all.
Every once in a while my husband looks back and says, “You wanted a lap dog…”
Is it weird that I think my husband’s ability to pack a car so well is sexy? I didn’t think all of this shit would fit. Engineers 😍
Somebody is scared…
This was taken right before he climbed into my lap. 50 pound lap dog.
