After a month of travel across the US we’re back on the west coast!
I wish I were still on the road, but I’m happy to be reunited with my little cat, Juniper. She stayed at the house while we were away and we had a good friend come over every day to take care of her and to hang out with her. She was so so happy to see us, but it kind of made me feel bad because she must have missed us so much from the way she’s been acting. She was glued to me the first few days back at home.
So what we’re we doing traveling for a month?
- We drove to Pennsylvania.
- We got married complete with a 100% vegan wedding and 100 cupcakes made by me!
- We drove to Chicago and honeymooned all the way to Los Angeles on old Route 66.
- We drove up California State Route 1 along the Pacific Ocean.
- We also saw some friends along the way and stopped at many many roadside attractions, oddities and museums.
Over the next few months I’m planning on posting photos from the trip and wedding. I want to do a post for each of the main attractions we saw along with photos from all over Route 66. I’m kind of excited to get back to blogging! I felt burned out by it a few months before the trip, but I think maybe I just needed a break from it.
Our friend, D.J., performed the wedding ceremony. The night before the wedding Eric and I went to a local amusement park in PA call Knoebels. Eight friends who were in town for the wedding went to Knoebels with us and we had such a fun night! My best friend Aaron and I went on a ride call the Tilt-A-Whirl with D.J. The ride tilts and whirls you around and around in a circle on an incline. As we were tilting and whirling around in the dark with bright lights flashing I declared that this was the best bachelorette party ever! Girls night!…three girls and seven guys.
Most of the food at the wedding was homemade aside from the veggie burgers. Eric and I took control of the grill and served our wedding guests. Now we want to buy a grill for our house! All I can think about are grilled veggie burgers, roasted corn and kabobs with pineapple on them!
