road trip day 26: reunion

I spent time with three friends today that I had not seen in 20 years. It was incredible. The nostalgia. The laughing. The confessions.

I spent a good amount of time out and about meeting up with these friends, and while I sat at a red light (singing Adele at the top of my lungs), I looked out the window and snapped this photo so I could remember what surrounds you here, like soldiers, at every turn. They are flooded with cicadas right now, which means the trees are buzzing and humming with locusts. It is a jungle.

My audio system in my car. Good 80s stuff.



Tomorrow we are driving to Louisville as we turn our ship westward.

I'm feeling some Boston and Kansas coming on!
At the top of my lungs.

You are all so stinking cute. No way could you have met 20 years ago.
You were all still en utero!

Happy! All of it!

I can't wait to catch up on the days I've missed when I get a chance...

Cute picture of you and your friends!
You must have had so much fun!

I'm heading out to run right now, wish I had some of that 80s music on my iPod!
Be careful coming home.
