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

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

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

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.

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”.
