It was my last day at work. I was happy that it was pretty uneventful because so many people were out for the holiday weekend already. I wrapped a few things up and left peacefully :)
When I got home, we packed up the last few things into our POD and hit the road! We decided to play the Flat Stanley game with a twist! :)
Of course, it was raining, so it was a gloomy drive. We made it to Madison, WI around 5:00 and settled in for the night.
Hidden gem: La Mestiza Mexican restaurant
It was a very boring drive from Madison through Illinois. VERY boring and cloudy. But, I was happy to have an uneventful drive and get some more hours under our belt!
Hidden gem: Tuscan Hills Winery in Effingham, IL (We crashed a wedding! Congrats to Josh & Erin!)
This was easily our best day of driving! We drove from southern Illinois through Kentucky and onto Nashville. It was only a few hours long and very beautiful. We'd never been to Nashville, so I was excited to stay downtown and explore the city.
We made the best of our day visiting the Titans stadium, the Parthenon and a few local places to hear some music.
Hidden gem: The Palm
This was our most stressful day of driving! We were on the road for a good 10 hours and endured the mountains in Chattanooga, Atlanta traffic and Florida rain. I was so happy when the day was over!
Hidden gem: The Florida Border!! (Not really hidden, but it felt like it when we were driving!)
It's back to work on Monday. I'm looking forward to getting back on track with our meals and figuring out my new workout plan, which will certainly include a lot of water activities and pool workouts. SO happy to be here and see my dream of living in a warm climate realized!
