Roadtrip: ‘mericuh

A few weeks ago, I packed up my CR-V with three years of belongings from Los Angeles and, with my mom, drove across the country, back to Chicago. We drove from Los Angeles to Flagstaff, Arizona (six hours), then to Amarillo, Texas (nine hours hours) , then to Rolla, Missouri (eight hours) to visit my brother at school. Then, Sunday afternoon, we drove the remaining seven hours back to Chicago. 

It was such an interesting trip, doing a cross-section of the US. The landscapes were breathtaking, driving through New Mexico we felt like we were on a different planet. We tried to stop at local places to eat and wanted to see the sights, but unfortunately didn’t have enough time. 

Here are some photos we took –enjoy!

The perfect ending to this long trip was coming home to my family waiting to welcome me back. So happy to be here in Chicago and starting a new chapter in my hometown!
