Yippee! Yemasee...

Traffic Jam
   We drove forever today. A traffic jam outside Washington D. C. held us up for a time. We got through after about 30 minutes. Bummer.
We headed towards Virginia, which was easy sailing. Hardly any traffic there.
   We ate lunch at Cracker Barrel in Wilson, North Carolina. Good eats. The cornmeal muffins and homemade biscuits hit the spot.
Cracker Barrell rocks!
I couldn't help but check out their gift shop. It was full of great ideas for possible future cardmaking once I get back home. I loved the saying about chocolate. That could find it's way on a card,too.
   I saw green grass for the first time in a long time. The weather was lovely. We started out in the morning at 45 degrees, but ended up the day at 81 degrees. Nice.....

So true!
   We drove some more... alot more. We ended up in Yemassee, South Carolina. We are only about 5 hours from Disney. Can't wait to get there.. It's really been a fun road trip. Haven't seen any craft stores, but I know there is one in Florida. I hope to talk my husband into a little side trip...

Thanks for checking out my blog.. More to come tomorrow...
