I thought I’d be more diligent about posting. For some reason, I assumed I would have a lot of extra free time. There have been many moments that I could have used to blog, but I think knowing that we are going to be SO far from each place we have visited I have stayed (I like to believe) very present in our day to day affairs.
At this point, I’m telling myself when I get back to my desk and desk top, I’ll post a stop by stop review. For now, here are my highlights. They mostly center around seeing family and friends.
We stayed in downtown St. Louis and it was a favorite all around. We spent some time in O’Fallon, visiting a friend’s soap and vintage shop, Larkspur Lane.
The next handful of places are hard to rate. Each one brought me SO much fulfillment.
My friend, Liz. Before we even arrived at her home, I knew I wanted to do an indepth blog post about her and her home. I WILL, but not today. For now II’ll leave you with ONE of the books I was greeted with, the table that never slept and the photo that will be framed in my office for the rest of my life.
White House Ruins.
I’ll wait to write more on this region; as always, it stirs a deep part of me.
Barstow: because that’s what friends do!!
Half Moon Bay. There’s a part of the soul that only family can fill.
Dundee, Oregon. Literally my heaven on earth.
My hope is that before the end of the summer I’ll be able to write a bit on each of the places we’ve called home, over the past handful of weeks. We have a month more of travel before we reach our “home.”
I’m already feeling the pull to be in my own space.
