Okay so first of all, it is very difficult to access this website from my phone. Part of me is wishing I gave into the whole iPhone idea....but, nah. Instead I sit in the car now typing on my Nokia with windows down andmusic blasting. The first leg of our journey was actually incredibly relaxing. After my packing paranoia I wasnt sure how I was feeing about the trip; it was already so stressful! Thanks to my Aunt and Uncle, upon arrival I got to swim in the pool in the glow of Christmas lights on the trees. Steps away from the pool was the screened in porch, "Summer House" where we stayed the night.
I fell asleep to the sound of deer walking in the woods right outside. Frogs, too, and the record player playing Nat King Cole. Ah, that was awesome. We woke up around 11 and began our journey to Chicago.
