These last couple weeks we’ve really been enjoying the Florida weather, longer days, and tropical scenery. However, all of these same elements make it difficult to get into the Christmas spirit. Christmas lights on a palm tree just don’t have the same nostalgic feeling as the snow, pine trees, and fires on a cold day that we are so use to experiencing in New York. Fortunately we have been able to experience this vicariously through photos sent from back home. A little while back, the town of Pultneyville went Christmas caroling around town; great way to start the Christmas season! We were very sorry to have missed out but enjoyed looking through the pictures.
We hit the road once again, this time bound for New Orleans. We had been staying at Aaron’s place for the last few days and it was extremely difficult to say goodbye to Aaron, Elisa, Kayla, and Ashlyn. We really miss being with you guys and we hope you catch up with us again soon! We had a great lunch with Aaron before getting back on the road. Afterward, we road off in style with our newly received “Carolina’s Fight for Life” t-shirt’s. Everyone needs one of these! Check out Carolina’s story under my CCS Friends link, or better yet look her up on Facebook at Carolina’s Fight.
We stopped for the night in Pensacola, FL just a few hours from our destination of New Orleans. We’re looking forward to meeting up with cousin Katie, who has the insider’s perspective of NOLA, tomorrow afternoon. Tonight Shannon and I wound down on the pullout couch of the hotel with a beer and glass of boxed wine; riding with class!
