Arrival Day!

Facebook status one year ago :  “Today we get to Florida. I got to remember I’m not dreaming.”. –Ben just said this morning.  What a perfect way to start our post for our final day of travelling!

9:57 A.M.    Woo hop! @ Georgia/Florida State Line I-75

10:17 A.M.   I’m at Florida Welcome Center in Jennings, FL

12:34 P.M.  I’m at I75 & Turnpike Interchange in Oxford, FL

12:44 P.M.   Driving down the Florida Turnpike singing songs from The Princess & The Frog soundtrack-life doesn’t get any better than this!

12:47 PM     pure joy!

(This was in response from an earlier tweet we received:

9:59 A.M.     so, did it feel amazing driving across that state line!!??)

12:49 P.M.    I’m at Okahumpka Service Plaza in FL

12:51 P.M.    Ben: palm trees make me happy

12:53 P.M.   Just entered Lake County! Woo hoo!

1:03 P.M.     13 min !

1:06 P.M.     The excitement level in this car is AWESOME!!!!!!!

1:11 P.M.      We see Citrus Tower!

Waiting in the lobby as we take care of the paperwork for our apartment:

3:57 P.M.      I’m at Golden Corral in Clermont, FL

4:01 P.M.      Our apartment is absolutely amazing. Will put a blog up tonight with pictures. Eating a late lunch/early dinner and then off to shop.

4:38 P.M.      I’m at Target Supercenter in Clermont, FL

It was absolutely amazing to have gone through this journey from Wisconsin to Florida!  If you were to ask us:  was it worth it?  We would unequivocally answer YES!, if only for the experience.  We’ll elaborate further in a separate post, but we will say that if you have a dream, don’t be afraid to pursue it.   It is better to have attempted and succeeded/failed, then to be filled with a life of regrets and “what ifs”.

Happy Dreaming!
