The Open Road.

I've had our little blog here for almost two years and have truly grown to LOVE escaping to this place to reflect on our life as a young married couple.  It's been a dream of mine for a while to be able to spend more time and energy here writing about our experiences and I think I may be one step closer!

Wyndham has an online resource for women who love to travel called Women on their Way and I recently entered a contest to be a featured blogger on their site.  The bloggers are determined by voters so I am hoping that my loyal followers will take a few moments and vote for me here!

I've put my entry below but you must head to the website (click here!) to vote.  You can vote once a day between March 2 and March 31.

Again, thanks so much for voting but more than that thanks for stopping by and reading my ramblings week to week!

My Open Road!

I've often thought about the open road like a blank canvas, a clean sheet of paper or a brand new Microsoft Word document. It's a place to write your story and that's just what I've been doing these last few years.

My husband and I have been married for a little over a year and upon getting married, we packed our bags and set out on the adventure of a lifetime. Ok, let me rephrase that, he accepted a job with a company that moves us every year for three years. But, as I said, we view this as "the adventure of a lifetime."

Our first stop was to Portland, OR and we spent a year of our lives delving into the culture of Portland (and as many surrounding areas that we could get to - Victoria, B.C., Seattle, Napa, Palo Alto, Eugene, Vancouver, B.C., Bend, OR and everywhere in between). Long story, short, we loved every minute of it.

Since then, we have relocated to Melbourne, FL. That's right; we literally DROVE from one coast to the other. Between an engine breakdown, many national park stops and some wonderful food, we quickly learned that no matter where you go, there you are.

We both love the adventures that traveling brings especially when set against the backdrop of a new marriage. We tend to write about our travel with a lot of humor, a little love and a bit of reflection. Ultimately, the dynamic of my creative spirit coupled with my husband's literal mix of army turned lawyer turned engineer always brings a different perspective on our open road.
