The Open Road....Or, a case of Wishful Thinking

The open road......Now that I'm buried in exams and papers, the miles of highway seem so appealing.

In January, S and I took a LONG road trip, from NJ to Ohio to Charleston, SC and back to NJ. The first few hours were awesome--and then after a while you just want to get out of the car. But you can't. Because you're in some completely random state and nowhere near your destination.

But that beginning part, with the miles of road just waiting.....that just makes it worth it.

I made this page to capture that beginning part. Don't know if I want to remember, let alone scrap the six hours of foot cramps and having to go to the bathroom:)

Supplies used: Studio Calico April kit (lots of bits of Crate Paper, Sassafrass, Studio Calico, etc. Lovin' the Pink Paislee Artisan tape and Jenni Bowlin butterflies, which I am pretty much out of.

Last Friday, I had the best time meeting Jenni, who I met on the SC message board and the bloggy world. She is such a wonderful person, AND a fantabulous scrapper, so you should pop over!

This was my first experience meeting someone from online in person (other than meeting my husband--which has generally been a success:)) and it was so natural.


And topping off the weekend, a wonderful date night...


What are you up to this week? How was your Mother's Day?
