Pennsylvania

Can we just be honest? May was a bit of a blur.

I remember about half of it.

The rest feels like something between a dream and a hallucination.

Since I had a fever for at least part of the month, it’s possible a good section of what I remember was actually a hallucination. When I figure out for sure, I’ll let you know.

The craziness that was May started with a friend’s wedding. My editor’s wedding, actually. She married the best guy. I’m so happy for them both. I flew down to help her with all the last minute details for the wedding, walk in her gorgeous, glorious woods, and fulfill all the duties of a bridesmaid.

All of this included being away from my husband for five days.

I was not prepared for how badly I missed him. Guys? I’m officially clingy.

Ouch.

After the wedding was over and we waved off the lovely bride, my husband and I set off on the second part of our trip. See, we figured that we’d made it all of eleven hours away from Colorado, and we might as well go a bit further and see a few things while we were at it.

A bit further meaning another fourteen hours to Philadelphia, PA.

Pennsylvania was a whole new experience for me. We stopped in Pittsburgh on the way to spend the night, and I instantly fell in love and was disappointed that we had decided to only spend one night there. The next day we drove to Philly, ate the best Philly cheesesteak sandwich available (according to Yelp), and had three glorious days to explore downtown Philadelphia.

We got lost. Like eight times.

Why can’t you turn left, guys? Why?

After Philly, we stopped in Scranton so that my Office loving husband could experience the Electric City, then went camping up at the most beautiful camp site I think I’ve ever explored. Pennsylvania is lovely, guys. Absolutely gorgeous.

Despite a few road bumps (fevers, bedbugs, a hotel room that smelled like smoke, and an encounter with what I was pretty sure was actually Bigfoot but was probably just my imagination going nuts in the middle of the night), we made it through and made it home and had an awesome time connecting with each other and exploring.

I’d call that a win.

When was the last time you took a road trip? Tell me about it in the comments!

  1. I’ve seen a tiny portion of Philly via the AmTrack train on my way to New Orleans. The only insights I have of Philly are via the TV shows. I would love to see it properly one day.

      It’s really lovely. I have only been to New Orleans once, and not when I was old enough to really appreciate it. That’s definitely on my list!
