I went on a road trip this past weekend to the Midwest. For a Navy brat, this was quite the adventure–I’ve never been so landlocked in my life. The sky out there is so big! I marveled at the beauty and majesty, of course, but I also struggled with feeling rather exposed.
A few of us girls drove out to Wisconsin for a wedding. This is, officially, the farthest I have ever traveled for a wedding (as a rule I don’t go anywhere I can’t make it to and from in one day), and it was totally worth it. Congratulations to the happy couple! And many prayers.
To protect the innocent, I won’ t be posting pictures of people. However, I got some fun shots of various spots in Milwaukee (the end point of our travels), which I thought I’d share. I have no idea what any of these buildings are. Ever the shallow little girl, I took pictures of them merely because “I thought they were pretty.”
Gotta have a picture of a city bus, or it just doesn’t count. And remember what I said about the sky? Even downtown!
This was outside an Italian deli where we stopped for lunch after the wedding. They gave us a long afternoon for sight-seeing before the reception.
Clearly, I’m going in no particular order. This was taken the night before the wedding, on the way to the rehearsal dinner.
A particular favorite of mine. The bride gave us wrist corsages, and some of us were better than others about keeping them on. I won’t name any names, of course. (I think this one’s mine, actually.)
Lady bugs! Need I say more?
This one washed out a bit at the top, but I just loved the colors. Hurrah for industrialism.
And…that’s all for now. I almost never take pictures, thus the typical lack of visuals on this blog. So enjoy.
