Well, you guessed it! I spent last week helping my brother move all of his worldly belongings from one side of the country to the opposite side! He had plans for movers and car shippers and all the works…which all began to fall apart at the eleventh hour. At the last minute, he became the packer, mover and shipper all in one. His wife had to fly ahead to California in order to begin her new job and, so, I went along for the drive:) Truly I did not drive much – the driving a “big rig” really is a guy thing, I suppose – but I totally was the entertainment along the way….and the official snack preparer!
I do have pictures from along the way that I hope to put together for my brother – and can hopefully share more later. Here are a few of the better ones from California. (Most of the others are taken from inside the truck looking through the window – ha! but they are good memories for the two of us.) It has been a long time since he and I spent much time just the two of us….and I was thrilled for the opportunity. My brother is not only smart (I’ve mentioned this before) but he is also funny. I loved our talks and even the quiet times while we watched the always changing landscapes across the country. It was a once in a lifetime trip – and probably one you would only want to do once:)
