In the past year and a half since we moved to California from Chicago, my boyfriend and I have been on a lot of adventures. But I didn’t blog about them as they happened as I should have. But I figure better late than never right?
So let’s take a little trip down memory lane. Back in October 2014, we made the big cross country move. 29 hours, 2,021 miles, across 5 states. What can we say, we like a good road trip. 🙂 We, of course, made stops along the way.
I lived in the suburbs of Chicago my whole life. We briefly lived in Washington DC for 6 months and we got furnished apartments so we only packed our cars full of our clothes and things, but no furniture. So this move to California was my first time ever getting a UHaul.
Here is it empty:
I found this fortune a few days before we left, it was perfect.
Even though we drove through Nebraska I didn’t take any pics of it. But we love Colorado and have been trying to move there for years and years. It’s still on our radar, but work keeps pulling us in different directions. Anyways here are gorgeous pictures of Colorado in the fall.
And this year, (which will be our third year of this blog!) we’ve decided to start sharing a few pictures of us, so you can all get to know us a little better. We are pretty private people, but I realize one of the reasons I love and follow other blogs is because I feel like I know the people I’m reading about and it feels like catching up with them when I read.
Here Dave and I are with the pretty fall Colorado leaves in the background. And yes I’m wearing my Chicago Bears sweater. 🙂
This trip we were able to visit our friends in Iowa, Colorado, and Vegas. It was a successful, no break down, beautiful, memorable, cross country road trip. I usually like to keep track of where we eat along the way, especially if it’s local, but this trip was so long ago that I don’t remember where we stopped.
Anyway road trips are great for so many reasons. They give you time to talk to and really get to know your car-mates, listen to podcasts, sing your heart out to your favorite songs, you get to eat fun local foods, visit friends and family along the way, and you get to see the open road. I’d definitely recommend a road trip in your near future. 🙂
