Rachel and I leave for our road trip across America tomorrow morning (before sunrise no less) and the car still isn’t packed! Oy.

 I can’t believe the time has finally come to hit the road. I am feeling pure excitement at this point and I am not sure if I will be able to sleep tonight! It feels like this dream has been a long time coming, 29 years actually.

I am pretty sure the trip will end up looking entirely different than I imagined, but luckily, I like surprises.

We look forward to bringing you all on this adventure with us!

 I want to be on the open road so bad! I was researching hotels last night and found myself grinning with excitement- the haunted Hotel Provincial in New Orleans…the gorgeous Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin…the Abiguiu Inn in New Mexico…each one excites me for a different reason. Everything about the trip excites me actually. I still can’t believe I am finally going to drive across the country!

Have any of you guys made this trip? Any tips??

I also spend waaaaaaaaay tooooooooo much time pinning road trip inspiration photos on my pinterest account! Here are some of my recent favorites…

-What inspired me this week?-

trapeze class

daydreaming of Paris

The woman in this video knocked my socks off!! She’s 108 years old and a Holocaust survivor- I found her spirit and outlook on life inspiring . My favorite line was “Everything is a present”….

 -What am I grateful for this week?-

My sweet boy who planned a lovely Valentines Day! He took me on two great dates…our first date was a burger and movie night- we saw the old film The African Queen which I loved. On our second date he surprised me with 4 dozen roses and dinner at Lily’s which is my favorite French restaurant.

 Bethenny Ever After starts again next week! There is a God!

-What surprised me this week?-

I surprised even my-crazy-self when I booked a one-way flight to Paris- I leave on July 15th!! I had exactly enough miles to get there and I thought why the hell not and booked the flight. If I can’t get back then I will move to Paris…how bad could that be? Kidding I would really miss Brian! I plan to rent an apartment and pretend I live in Paris for two weeks. Most likely I will be going by myself unless any of my girlfriends decide to join! (hint hint Taline, Crystal, Jen and Rachel) Either way I am fine with it…I think Paris could be kinda fun alone- I would practice my French, write, eat, drink, sleep, explore…can you say heaven??? Of course I will be bringing you all there with me as well.
