Jon and I finally arrived in Alabama last night. The 10-hour road trip went surprisingly smooth with our travel buddies. Remington rode with me, while Riley held shotgun in Jon's car.
Not too long after we crossed the state line, we stopped to let the dogs have one last potty break. And as soon as we got out of our cars we could smell "the South." Even though I've lived away from Sweet Home Alabama for over four years now, I've never been greeted so sweetly upon my other returns as I was with this one. Neither Jon nor myself had ever noticed the smell of the pines until now. Oh how we've missed trees. That, coupled the temperature gauge reading 85º at any hour other than two in the morning, had us beyond giddy. So giddy that Jon called me during our convoy just to inform of the temperature :)
After arriving at my mom's, we quickly unloaded all our stuff, had a nice home-cooked meal and settled in the for the night. As you can see from the picture below, we have a lot of organizing to do before our temporary "home" will be a little more livable, but we're working on it.
Cohen's nursery. It will definitely be a busy, but exciting time, and I look forward to sharing it all with you!
