Road Trip Across America... thus far.
Anyway, Kim’s wedding is the real reason for this crazy trip. I decided, that instead of driving home from TN to Virginia and hopping on a plane, I’d just drive to the wedding. Soooo here I am now, in Nashville hanging out with friends. I’ve been staying with my friend Laura, who was an incredible friendship that came out of my time in seminary, and it’s been so much fun to spend time with her. Monday, while I was waiting for Laura to get off work, I also got to see Stacy and hangout with her for a few hours, before I crashed on the couch in her husband, Lace’s office at the church. Sheesh, I was so tired. It was like, all the sleep I missed at camp, all caught up with me. That was the best, short nap I’ve ever taken. I’m excited to see Stacy again today for lunch and then I’m also going to stop by the fuge office for the first time and drop something off and then hopefully see a couple more people, before I head to Memphis to see some friends.
I love Nashville. I should try harder to find a job, so that I can move here and hangout with these amazing people all the time. Last night, it was so much fun… Our bass player and drummer from this summer are in another band, Reverie, and theydrove up from Chattanooga to play a show at the Rutledge here in town. Seth, our worship leader, heard that I was going to come, and since the 24 hours we’d already spent apart, had been hard on him, he decided to come to and hangout with me at the show too. It was great to see them, even though I had just seen them the day before… knowing they were coming to Nashville made it a million times easier to say goodbye when they left Caron Newman on Sunday. The show was great. I also saw this other band that I’m going to check out on Itunes and you should too, “Dinner and a Suit” and I thought they were pretty great.
Sooooo, from here….
I’m heading to Memphis to see Blake (a Fuge friend) and his wife Joy, and Rob (another Fuge friend)
Then Thursday morning I’ll head down for the wedding.
Then Sunday I’ll drive down to Dallas to see all my girls from seminary. I’m super excited about it too.
Tuesday, I’ll head to Longview Texas to see my friends Ashley (friend from elementary school) and her husband Tony (friend from seminary)……
Wednesday, I’m heading to Birmingham where our band from this summer is leading worship for a youth event and our program director is preaching one of the nights.
THEN… holy cow this is a lot of driving…. I’m going from Birmingham to Atlanta to see my friend Wes from seminary, and hopefully one of my best friends from high school, Kacie.
Eventually, I’ll be heading home to Virginia.
So that’s where I’ll be the next 2 weeks. I’ll probably be in my car a lot, so maybe you’ll get a phone call from me… so get excited… and get excited about pictures… because you know I’ll take some!
