    » Oh hey, surprise road trip! I didn’t mention it before, but if you follow me on Instagram than you know that for the last week and a half Boo and I had been on an all-American road trip across the midwest! I have a crap ton of pictures, so expect a whole couple of weeks full of trip-related posts.
