We just got back from a mondo roadtrip to Wisconsin. My inlaws were married in my MIL’s hometown 65 years ago, and though they have lived in California ever since, she wanted to go back to celebrate it. We drove across country, running into bad weather outside of Salt Lake (ice storms and snow) but managed to get to Wisconsin in one piece. I did, however, lose one of my favorite earrings somewhere along the way. This earring has always had the wanderlust, so I hope it is happy somewhere in the farmland of Iowa. We also had both of our big pieces of luggage decide to disintegrate – three handles on my husband’s suitcase broke within a day of each other, and the handle on mine broke too. We found ourselves shopping for luggage right before we had to pack up again for the plane flight back home.
Now that the trip is over, I have to get my sewing machines into the shop and repaired, quickly, I hope.
