road trip day 4: as far as the eye can see

Planking on a country road in Iowa. Yes, this was what we lived for today as we traveled through what seemed to be millions of miles of corn fields. It was so gorgeous.

A nice man in a beat up red car pulled up as we were getting out of the car and asked, "Do you need help or are you just peeing?"

I replied, "Neither. Thanks though. We are just, um, enjoying the quiet."

"Well, ok, then."

Tonight we are in Chicago visiting for a few days with one of my closest friends and her wonderful family. Life is so so good.

Not sure what would be more fun, planking on a country road or peeing on one. I think you guys would have fun no matter what!

That story about that man makes me love Iowa without ever having been there.
