It’s been busy in my world since last Friday so my Monday post will be short. I traveled with my daughter to St. Louis this weekend to a Vintage Fair. We had some tense moments, but mostly a fun filled weekend. Mother’s Day I spent with my mom. I always enjoy time with my mom.
My daughter sells vintage items on Etsy and took some of her stock to a Vintage Fair. I loved spending time with my daughter. We met awesome people. We stayed in a plush hotel. What’s not to like? Well, the tense moments of a trip that almost always related to – driving are what I don't appreciate.
-Eight lanes and driving an oversized SUV in the middle of four lanes is well an education in itself.
-Don’t forget I live in a rural area.
-First detour on the way to the hotel was tricky, but doable.
-Don’t forget I call a rural town -- home.
-Lots of downtown St. Louis traveling.
-Did I mention I live rural?
-We did everything right by visiting the site of the fair (two miles away) the day before. Easy Peasy. Then there was a race, a race of pink t-shirted tutued little girls, which blocked our easy 2 mile trek to the fair.
-What? I’m a small town girl with no navigational skill to my name.
-A helpful city worker told us three different ways to get there, each one being a faster or easier way. Bless his heart.
-Didn’t he know I drive in rural areas?
We did what he said and drove farther downtown, past a Walgreens, took a highway to another highway and missed our exit and took another exit. We looped and drove, looped some more and exited and somehow, by the grace of God, we ended up at the Vintage Fair.
Like in your face -- right there. How is that possible? The Vintage Fair was loads of fun.
How was your weekend?
