Travel Month: Road Trip

To me there is nothing better than a good ole road trip. Pack up the car and head out on a grand adventure. Yes the highway in the sky will get you there faster, but there is so much you don’t get to see by just flying above everything. I am not a huge Jason Alden fan but his song “Fly Over States” hits home with me. By not flying I have seen so many interesting things: a heard of sheep at a cow crossing in Wyoming, Wall Drugs and Corn Palace in South Dakota, and I have taken “a ride across the badlands” as the song suggests. I have no desire to go overseas when I still have so much more here on mainland USA I haven’t seen yet, and maybe some of Canada.

My View One Year Ago

This was my view one year ago. That was a great trip. This year I already have one Disney Trip down and one more on the way, plus a Disney Cruise. 2018 will be the year of Disney for this Southern Belle.

35 ‘Ears

Last Monday my parents celebrated 35 years of marriage. And now that my mom has been given her surprise anniversary gift, if I had a mountain top to shout it from I would. I am going on a Disney Cruise! I am so excited and we are going to Disney World again. We are not going till much later this year but I have something to look forward too. My aunt and cousins will be going to Disney World with too. I’m super excited to see what a Disney Cruise is like, I have heard they are amazing!
