Day 1…. Leaving Florida for Georgia

Tuesday, 6.1.2021

I woke up at 3:30 a.m. incredibly anxious to get going. Funny thing I wasn’t planning on heading out until 5:00, but once I’m awake then it’s game over, time to get up. Most of my car was packed last night, so it was just about the small stuff and the sad goodbyes. I made my protein shake, hugged Craig and the kids, and took the deepest breath before getting into my car.  I made my “Morning Musings” video of my thoughts this morning before heading out, and thus, Day 1 was born.

Starting Mileage 6.1.21

It took me from 5:30 a.m. to about 1:30 p.m. to get from my home to Newnan, GA.  I stopped at several rest stops, and got the idea to get pics of Walter with the State signs.  I laughed probably more than I needed too at taking this first one….he looks like he is running at the camera. I LOVE it!!  I was feeling the stress and anxiety washing away with each mile, but with that new relaxed feeling came a feeling of wanting desperately to sleep.  I stopped for caffeine and a cheeseburger and was recharged again until I got to Christa’s home.

Leaving Florida and heading into Georgia
Walter’s FIRST appearance on the trip, get used to him, you will see him a lot on this adventure and many more to come!

We enjoyed some great girl time and chat, catching up on life and Disney. The time flew and it was already time to head to Dunc’s for BBQ with dear friend, Martha.  Such a great hug from her and we had a detailed chat about her house being blown away by the recent tornado in Newnan this past March. Yes, you heard me right. I joked with her that there was no “Sorry your house was eaten by a Tornado” card…. but I gifted her best as possible to make her heart feel lighter.  Martha spread kindness to Christa and I as well, and it was just a beautiful evening of three women sharing stories and love.

One of the Disney gifts I gave out on my Road trip was this Disney frame- Martha was the first recipient but not the last 🙂 I had so much fun buying presents at WDW for my friends and strangers on the trip.
Dunc’s BBQ- Yummy chicken, coleslaw, corn bread and fried okra- delicious!
I love my ladies, Martha and Christa- thanks for having dinner with me gals!
Christa and I stopped for ice cream on the way home, my host for the next couple of days, SHE IS AWESOME!

You may see this first day as a “that’s it?” Whereas I am exhausted.  It is taking all of my energy left to write this as I am committed to getting one done every day. There wasn’t much video taken today so there will be a combined video coming later in the week.

I crack up every time I see this picture, it summed up all of my nerves and butterflies for my first night on my Road Trip. Walter pulls is off beautifully.

It has started. I am doing this. It is VERY real. I think. Who knows. I need sleep. See you tomorrow.

Thank you for helping me spread kindness with your support!!!

I LOVE sharing the joy of Adventure, and Travel! Every dollar you support me with goes right back into my mission for equipment, gas, and essentials. But most importantly, when you support me financially it tells me you BELIEVE in me and MY VALUE, and that means more to me than ANYTHING! Spreading the kindness is my goal on this amazing journey, and I thank you for helping me make magic for so many people. So THANK YOU for YOU!!
