Well, we made it back to the South. It was an awesome trip across the country, and our Honda (whom we affectionately call 'Rhonda the Honda') purred like a kitten the entire way. We started with a long driving day, leaving Los Angeles at 5am headed towards Phoenix. In Phoenix, we stopped at Last Chance, our favorite store, and stocked up on great deals. Then, we managed to make it all the way to Amarillo, TX, where we spent the night with Ryan and Rochelle Chancellor at their new home. It took us 16 hours to drive the first leg. We took Sunday off and spent time with them at church, and enjoying celebrating their life, business and new marriage. On Monday, we made a pit stop to visit Ben Bainbridge in Oklahoma City for lunch, and then made it to Little Rock, AR (home of Bill Clinton). Then, we boarded again and made the hop, skip and jump over to Nashville, where we hung out with Shannon and Patrick Jordan and their daughters, Lindsey Miller and Brooke. It was so good to catch up with old friends and let each other in on some of our out-of-town friendships. The next afternoon, we hit the final destination...Greenville, SC! We unloaded our car and headed to church with Brandon's parents andd were so glad to be home! Thanks to all who put up with us! We look forward to being home.
