Final Post: New England, 2016

This will be my final post from our New England, 2016 trip. I started emotional, and I'm ending emotional ... I'm sorry, I'm pre-menopausal. We have one more (official) trip remaining of Driving the Dream. Next summer we plan to take a cruise through Alaska, which will be state #50. I can hardly believe this dream, which feels like it started so many years ago, will be coming to an end in 2017.

We are sitting in the Detroit airport, waiting for our flight back to Minneapolis. 

I think they coordinated hair and shirt colors today.

Yep, a selfie smile from both of them (although Anna´s is a bit sarcastic)

I think she is actually reading this ...

In their Happy Place
Although I didn't track stats like usual (and I´m going to apologize one more time for those I received messages from), here are a few:
  • States: Six (6)
  • Fights: 0
  • Injuries: 0
  • Views on this blog: 12,609 since last trip
  • Knitting Projects: None. Bottomline: I didn't knit.

I can´t thank all of you enough for following me. I'm not sure how this blog has received nearly 31,000 views, but someone must be reading it, and I am grateful. 

I am also grateful for my traveling team. I started this dream to share my love of travel with my girls, and they have given me more than I could ever give them. They keep me young. They keep me alive. So get out there and explore this great nation of ours my friends, and live by the words of Ben & Jerry ... "If it's not fun, why do it?"
