I Hope Your Dreams Stay Big // Daily Outfit

Well if you plan to motor west  
Just take my way it's the highway that's the best 
Get your kicks on Route 66
~ Route 66 by Chuck Berry

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope your work week is going well so far! It's nice to be home and settling back into the norm after a drama-filled weekend with the fam.

While I was out of town this weekend Molly and I had a great talk about finding the balance between being practical, and yet not giving up on our dreams at this delicate time of our lives, and it made me realize something. I want to travel. I've wanted to for years, but lately I've been trying to stuff the idea down because it seemed so impossible. But now... now I have a plan.

I'm currently saving up for a pickup truck that I hope to get by the end of the year (prayers much appreciated!) after that I'm going to dive head first into saving up for a vintage trailer - another of my teenage-long dreams, and after I get that, I hope to have it in working order and have enough money saved up for a trip along the course Route 66 took: all the way from Chicago out to L.A.. It's been a dream of mine for years and I don't want to get married and settle down without being able to say that I at least tried to make that trip happen. How sad would that be?

So that's my plan, and I'm really excited! I know it's kind of a long shot, but I'm going to do my best to make it happen! Life's no fun if we can't dream, right?

  7. I love your dress and of course your Doctor Who shoes :)
    I think it's okay to dream, i'm definitely saying yes to traveling. I'm going to Greece this summer with one of my best friends and i'm so looking forward to it :)

    I would love to do Route 66 but for a European girl like me it's quite expensive so i'll shall have to save some money.

  9. I want to do a US road trip, only along route 50. I've currently driven a lot of it, and I don't think I can do it all in one trip, but I'm aiming to get Ocean City to Cincinnati done soon.

    And I LOVE how you can pull off chucks with dresses so well. I can't do it anymore.
