No place like home…

July 17, 2009

An hour to Georgia. About 2.5 hours in Georgia and then we’re in South Carolina. 3hours or so in SC and we hit NC. I consider Charlotte to roughly be the half way point. I get confused and always think “Are we in Virginia yet?” Usually that means we’re still in NC but less than an hour from Virginia. We’re only in Virginia for about an hour and I know I have to get gas because in West Virginia it’s going to be $0.30/gallon more. Also have to get some cash out of the ATM for the WV tolls (the only tolls on the whole drive). When we hit Morgantown, I know we’re only about an hour away from the place I call home!

That’s the drive to Pittsburgh. It’s such a piece of cake drive. Matt took the first shift while I tried to nap. He drove for a little over 5 hours and I took over the rest since I’m using to being up from midnight until the sun comes up. When we hit the Pennsvylvania border yesterday morning, the sky was slowly growing lighter. Soon I could see the beautiful hills and the farms with their big red, white or brown barns. So much of PA is just farm land and it’s so beautiful. I took in the moment alone. Matt was sleeping in the passenger sleep with both of the dogs laying on top of him. Cruising along passed the farms, the day was starting to come to life and I sighed knowing that it was only a little further until we reached home.

We arrived around 6:30am and my mom was getting up for work. I checked to see if we had bread from Mancini’s Bakery and sure enough, it was there! She asked the other day if I wanted her to pick up a loaf and I told her not to worry about it because we would go get some. It’s kinda tradition that when I come home the first thing I do is eat some Mancini’s bread! Ever since I was a little kid whenever we took a trip to Pittsburgh we always brought home loaves of Mancini’s. You can bet we will be bringing some home this time, too! : )

It’s going to be a busy trip, but I’m excited about being home! Promise to have pics soon!
