Last week we made our way back across the country, from San Diego, CA back to Florida. I’m not going to lie, it was a long trip. It was a rough trip. We didn’t sight-see or dilly-dally. We have amazing friends who will fly out to California to help with the drive back since I couldn’t. It has taken me a week to do laundry and start to un-pack. I’m exhausted. I almost feel like part of me is trying to catch up to the other part of me which is in a different time zone. Every now and then I look back through some of the pictures and it’s almost like a dream. As the scenery flew past I captured brief moments of it and so glad I did. I had already forgotten how beautiful a lot of the landscape we passed through truly is.
The variety of landscapes and climate was amazing. From 84 in California to a scorching (yet dry) 116 degrees in the Arizona desert, to a balmy 70 degrees in Flagstaff… all in the same day.
Next time we make a trip like this we will have to plan some stops to not only make the journey more bearable but to allow for a little more enjoyment. This country of ours has so much to be seen and explored.

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep…” -Robert Frost
