Stops along the way

This will be the last post of all the wonderful friends who saw us off to Roswell!

Saying good bye to Bethany, I will miss living so close to her! 

My Best Best Best friend Janelle drove from Seattle to say good bye! 

Our first stop on the way down was in Denver to spend some time with Rachel! We got the royal treatment while staying with Rach; A comfy bed, a homemade soy latte, a walk in Washington Park, taco lunch, wedding-magazine reading, tasty wine, and great conversation!

A walk through Washington Park!

Lunch at Marg's Taco Bistro

Drew, Rach, and I went to dinner at Cora's (my Young Life leader from High School)! It was so fun to be with Cora, we hadn't seen her since she flew to Spokane to be in our wedding in '09!

Our 24 hours in Denver were wonderful, and after spending 18 hours in the car we needed an entire day to relax!

Nashville was our next destination! Nashville was almost 1,200 miles from Denver. We left at 5:00AM and arrived in Nashville just after midnight.  Needless to say it was a long day! We decided to drive that far to avoid staying in a hotel. Josh and Lauren, our very close friends that we met in Pasadena live in Brentwood, TN so we were so excited to stay with them and catch up on life.

It was fun enjoying brunch with J & L and seeing both their girls, Sophi and Maddy! We are looking forward to future trips up to their place. Since Nashville was the city we set out to move to (before Drew got this awesome job) we were excited to have some time to see the city.  I really wanted to go to Jeni's ice cream shop but it was going to be out of our way. I was bummed, but as we were driving away from brunch figuring out our plans and this is what I saw...

A Jenis food truck! It was awesome, and even better it was free scoop day to celebrate being voted best ice cream in Nashville. This is hands down the best ice cream I've ever had.

Enjoying some brown butter almond brittle and dark chocolate ice cream!

We were welcome to Roswell with excitement and Love! Thank you everyone who helped make our travels as easy and cheap as possible!
