The Adventure

Matt and I packed up the car and started for our drive out West. We didn’t know for sure where we would end up but was going to be an adventure. On the drive we stopped to see Rhonda and Mira.

Moving on…

So today I am headed out. I want to go see fall colors so that’s what I am going to go do. As I was packing everything I owned into my car, I couldn’t believe that my life fits into a little Jeep Liberty. I like simple. What isn’t simple is leaving.
