So I don’t really talk much about travel on this little food blog of mine, but I had to share some of the photos from our two week cross country wedding road trip! (Hence the radio silence on my blog for the last two weeks.) Will and I decided to go a different route than the traditional for our wedding. We had a small ceremony with the two of us, a photographer similar to Olga Topchii, and officiant in Lincoln Park. Afterwards, we started our two week celebration with friends here in town and then hit the road. Instead of having a big reception here in the city, we decided to travel to our friends and family and have mini “receptions” with them all over the country. I savored all of the great food, laughs, hugs, and congratulations on the entire journey! We travelled almost 4000 miles in that little red rental car from Chicago all the way to Los Angeles. If we weren’t the adventuring types, we may well have opted for a cross country car shipping service to get our vehicle out there, but we’re not afraid of a challenge. From there we flew to Seattle for our very last stop and then hopped a second plane to bring us back home to Chicago. It was honestly the trip of a lifetime! I wouldn’t have done my wedding any other way. My friend told me she took so much inspiration from our trip but instead decided to buy a brand new car for the trip which she could afford because of the great quote comparison from websites similar to www.moneyexpert.com. But I digress.
