After Columbus, we headed to Virginia, our home state. It wasn’t until we started in to familiar territory that we fully comprehended the length and impact of our journey: we had just driven across the entire country.
New friends, old friends, new business, unfamiliar landscape, insane rain, summer heat burning off, leaves changing…all a perfect combination to lead us right into the warm, loving arms of family. What a trip. When I saw the sign for Roanoke, I knew we’d done something big. For us. If friends and family weren’t a part of it, it would have been nothing, really.
The rest of our trip was full of laughter, birthday cakes, museum exploring, home cooked meals, good conversation, new restaurants, perfect hugs, unconditional support, love (lots of it), nostalgia, nostalgia, nostalgia. I am so grateful for the people in my life, the people I’ve met because of W, and the people I’ve met since starting this crazy business.
Thank you for everything, people! We love you.
