This post has been a long time in the making- 3000 miles, 11 states, 1000 photos, and about two buckets of coffee, to be exact.
A month ago, my mom and I set out on a cross country road trip, from Boise, Idaho to South Florida. Here are some pieces of our journey.
With a little convincing on my part and a lucky condo rental, we spent two nights in Nashville to get a taste of the city. It turns out I love that city, and will undoubtedly be back.
After a week of driving, digging our feet into the sand for the first time felt like pure bliss. It was then it sunk in that we had arrived!
Our priority during our time in Florida was family. We spent lots of day laughing and reconnecting with relatives and friends, and enjoyed lots of meals and Christmas movies.
Just an hour south in Miami, Art Basel was going on during my visit, so we took a few days to explore the countless events, exhibits, and street artists who came in from all over the world.
This was a trip for the books. There's a lot of beauty in this country of ours, and I'm so thankful I got to experience it with my mom. We made it over snowy mountain passes, through map misreads, early mornings, and fifty hours in the car together. And we still like each other!
As for Florida, I hope to see you soon. There's a lot of people and beaches who have bits of my heart there.
Mom- thanks for the ride and endless photo stops and laughs. Here's to next time!
