Over the river and through the woods..

Its tradition.
As in... We do it every year.
It's 3:30am and I am in our family car with my mom and dad (writing this on my cell phone)... Heading to Oregon.  I grew up in Oregon, and the majority of my family still lives there. So every year, my mom and dad and I make the 17 hour trek up the 5 to my grandma's house.  

Some may think its crazy... Others may question why we don't just fly... But hello people... Experience! Every year it is an experience. Every year my mom and I stay up all night the night before while my dad goes to sleep extra early so he'll be wide awake (during which my mom and I always crash).  Every year I bring one pillow. which really should be enough... but it never is. So this year, I brought 3! Because THIS year, I will sleep well!

So now I'm going to turn off my phone... plug is my headphones... and finally go to sleep. It is 4am and I'm just goin to sleep :) I have all kinds of sessions to blog in the upcoming week, as well as a look back on the year, some of my favorite photos from 2009 and probably some fun stories from our trip... so make sure to check back!

yeah, when a person has 3 pillows, you would think they could share--or at least drive for a while so someone else could enjoy all that soft cushiness for a little while . . . :)
