road trip

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

Two weekends ago Mike and I went to Bluebell, PA for the wedding of some good friends. It was a wonderful. Per usual we decided to drive down instead of taking a plane or the train. While many people dread six to seven hour car rides, I happen to love the drive. I love flying […]
