and recreated our very first photo as we said goobye to our home:
J drove the girls to Providence to meet my mom. I missed them right away but seeing pictures like this puts my mind right at ease. BB time is always magical.
We vowed to not rush this trip. It's all about stopping when we want to stop and taking the scenic route.
So when we saw these outlets right down the road, we had to stop. ESPECIALLY when I saw they had this store:
and y'all...I hit the mother lode. All handbags were half off. I promptly decided (and J agreed, even if he was chuckling when he agreed) that I needed a new bag for Italy. And we all know my affinity for obsession with Kate Spade.
After the outlets we had lunch at Danny's Drive In. SO good. The burger was delicious. I totally recommend this as a road trip pit stop.
Side Note: I'm using the Best Road Trip Ever App to help us find quirky attractions and non fast food restaurants. It rocks.
Through NY, NJ and some of the most beautiful land I've ever seen in PA, 5 or so minutes in Maryland...there was a very brief foray into West Virginia and then we ended up here.
Winchester, VA at the George Washington hotel. Note: rooms are 77 dollars right now and it's really nice.
You know J is dying at all the Civil War battlefields around here. In his element.
So as I type this we are in VA. Today we book it to Nashville. We have lots of fun places to stop along the way.
Our first stop is Natural Bridge.
Wish us luck, see you soon. On the road again...
