The trip to Pennsylvania took us through Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and finally PA! I added a few new states to my “States I’ve Been To” list. Those would include North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. And do you know which states I hated? North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan! Michigan was the biggest offender. I’m sorry if you live there, but good grief it was a horrible drive! Never let me go there again!
I’ve been neglecting this little blog of mine! Things have been so busy the last two weeks with preparing for the wedding and our Kickstarter project. Yesterday I realized that it was exactly TWO weeks until we leave for Pennsylvania. That’s TWO weeks until I’m off for a month. Woo hoo and OMG I didn’t realize that I only have two weeks to get ready.
I’m ready for the planning stage for the wedding to be over with. So much planning for a small wedding!
Another worry of mine is leaving my little cat behind. It really makes me sad and I try not to think about it, but I can just see her now looking out the front window, watching us drive away. Baby kitty! We do have a close friend coming over to the house everyday to check on her and feed her and play with her, but I feel so guilty! Baby kitty, if we had a camper I would take you with me in a heartbeat!
Other things on my mind lately…holy tornadoes in the Midwest. It’s making me really nervous to be traveling through that area on Route 66. Oklahoma City is being slammed yet again with tornadoes today. We’re going to be driving right through Oklahoma City. Get out of there you mean old tornado!
Tomorrow there will be a day trip fun! I’ve been so stressed out this week, it will be wonderful to get away for a day!
“Following our June wedding on the east coast, Sarah and I will be embarking on a honeymoon trip along Route 66. For three weeks, we’ll be photographing the Road and the oddities along it with vintage Polaroid cameras.
Unlike many Kickstarter photography projects, our end goal isn’t a book – it’s the photos themselves. We want to travel Route 66, take photos with vintage Polaroids and send them to people – friends, family, even strangers. Each photo will necessarily be a one of a kind, you will have the only copy in existence. We won’t even have one! . Each will be taken along Route 66 and will in some way capture the essence of the old road. And to be clear, regardless of whether the project is funded, we’ll be traveling Route 66 this summer. The support you give will allow us to purchase film, additional cameras and needed supplies for shipping the photos. Rest assured you will not be funding our vacation.”
In less than two days we actually reached our funding goal! We were so surprised and thankful that people wanted our photos! You can still support the project and we’ll send you photos from the road if you’re interested. Head on over to our Kickstarter page to check it out!
This post needs a cat photo.
I’m here! And so is spring! I’ve been gone, but don’t think I haven’t been doing exciting things. Last week I took a trip to Pennsylvania. I didn’t tell my sister I was flying in so she was quite surprised! My sister is pregnant now so it was soo good to see her! I felt the baby kick too. It’s really exciting. I can’t wait to be an aunt. We spent quite a bit of time with my parents and my brother-in-law too. We went out to eat, bought some Italian ice AND had a surprise baby shower for my sister! I have tons of photos to share with you over the next few weeks.
