a couple of weeks ago, joel and i roadtripped to nashville
for a counseling conference he presented at (he amazes me).
i absolutely love going on trips with joel.
it was so.nice. to get time away to reconnect & just enjoy each other,
as we don't get whole lot of qt during a normal week
(joel is a full-time PhD student AND works full-time. he's cray-cray.)
while in nashville, i unexpectedly fell in love with the South.
i learned that southern hospitality is most definitely a real thing.
i was blown away by how friendly and personable people were there!
i even had an extended conversation with the woman who rang up my scarf
at a little boutique in Franklin (cutest town ever). she insisted that we try to move
down there once joel is looking for a job as a professor :)
i think i could very much picture myself somewhere in the South down the road.
for some reason, i get a sense that Charleston or Savannah would fit me perfectly,
though i have yet to visit (soon, hopefully!)
unfortunately i have little photographic evidence of how fantastic our trip was,
but i did snap a few.
now i'm ready for our next trip! we want to get as many fun little trips in before
we have kids. thank goodness i'm able to get comp hotel rooms via the day job!
we are thinking of possibly driving to asheville, NC for new year's.. anyone been?
