On The Road

Colorado, where I am right now! (3/30)

Written March 29th:

We're on vacation! We left two days ago, and are currently sitting in Nebraska, watching a train go by, with the faint smell of cows wafting through the open doors. I love seeing the graffiti on trains: it truly is art. Sure, it's illegal, but that takes all sorts of skill to do, and I can definitely appreciate that.

It's hard, being away from my sewing machine! Especially when I'm sitting in the car for hours, with little to do (besides school). I brought a knitting project that I haven't started yet, but I'm afraid I don't have the most patience for knitting, and this is a very challenging project! Luckily, mom is here, and as I've mentioned before, she's crazy good at knitting.

Yesterday we were in South Dakota, so here's a photo from there--the Corn Palace. They've been covering the building with corn cobs since 1892, in these murals. It seemed...well, honestly, it seemed really silly to me, but that's coming from a teenage girl, so think what you like of it. :)

Here's a picture of me, last night, wearing a fantastic pink necklace I bought from a cute little antique shop.

Hope it's spring where ever you may be!


  1. Hi Addie,
    Nice updates. Looks like you are having fun on vacation. Unfortunately it isn't spring here yet. Another storm and no school or work today. Everyone is growing really tired of winter. Have fun on your trip and see if you guys can bring some warm weather back with you! Hi to the folks too.
    Love, Aunt Jean

  2. Hey! It is me again! I'm sitting here listening to 'Bad Day' By Alvin and the Chipmunks. There are several people in my house who want to snatch the computer from my hands and take a chainsaw to it! Hehe.

    Now that I have explained in way to much detail what I am doing...

    You were counting train cars! Don't deny it! :) Its to bad you couldn't take your sewing machine with you!!!
    I like your new necklace, and the outfit you are wearing in the picture is amazing! You have hot+ classy down pat!
    I hope that all these comments will find you somewhere exciting... like the corn palace! haha! But really, be of good cheer, you are nearing your destination!



I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
