We started out the journey on a relatively mild note. I mean, who really likes to wake up at 6 in the morning after going to bed 5 hours previous, only to understand that you will be driving for the next 14 hours? Despite our sleep deprived state, we were relatively excited. I personally started screaming as we left our home Starbucks: "WE'RE GOING TO SEATTLE!!!!" I personally couldn't believe it, and it sure didn't feel real.
The trip was an almost constant conversation. Ripples of laughter layered the interior of the car as we bantered. We weren't driving, we were flying.
Though rather uneventful, we managed to get in the first two Starbucks stops of our trip. We met some cool baristas, probably creeped them out by asking to friend them on facebook, and got back in the car for the long haul.
It was a great start to the our nine day excursion across the United States.
The drive ended up being shorter than expected, (Which was awesome) and we ended the evening dining at a really awesome place called Aretha's.
Andrea and Justin are an awesome couple, entertaining us with silliness and stories of adorable toddlers. End of first day: An exhilarating start to what seems to be becoming a beautiful escapade.
