When Going with the Sister to Visit the Fiance

When my work schedule changed and I ended up having a few days free that I thought weren’t going to be, I made fast plans Wednesday to head out Thursday for a weekend trip with Chelsy. She was planning to visit her fiance, John, over the weekend, and when I asked her about going along, she said “of course!”. So after working Thursday forenoon, then snagging a coffee date with an out of state friend who was in town, I headed home and joined up with Chels, where we loaded up and headed to Kansas.

We talked pretty much faster than we drove (which might be saying alot:), and enjoyed every minute of the time together. Chels bought us dinner at Subway, which is one of our mutual favorite places for a quick “grab and go”.

Just a little note here: treasure the time with your family. Chels and I are extremely close, and knowing that she is soon going to be moving away makes me all the more grateful for the times we have had and are having together. And of course I look forward to visiting her after she moves to Kansas and making many more memories together. But this little trip together was pretty special, since we’ve done so many road trips together in the past, and now that she’s getting married, our “sister road trip” days are probably at an end.:)

I got to help Chels and John work on their house, which was super fun! It’s alot of work, but one thing’s for sure- these two aren’t scared of hard work! And they sure do look adorable in the process!

And so another road trip with my dear sister is in the books, and I am reminded of what a gift it was. It may have been just a weekend trip to visit her fiance and work on their house, but to me it was extraordinary.

  1. That’s special that y’all got to travel out together!! As always, I love your sisterhood road trip stories. 🙂

  2. My mom was one of 7 sisters (and 2 brothers!) and they did lots of trips together over the years, even long after everyone had moved out. My mom died last year and her 6 surviving sisters all treasure those trips together with her. I hope you and Chelsy are able to take many more in the future – make the time, if you can, the time goes so quickly!

    1. That’s really neat that you and your siblings continued to do trips together! What a fantastic idea! Actually, I already have a road trip planned with some of my married siblings this fall. So we definitely should do more in the future.

  3. It looks like fun! I think it would be a lot of fun to be able to interior design (decorate) your own house!
    I would like to see pictures of the finished product. Sometimes it takes a while to be able to afford everything so decorating comes gradual.
    Tell Chelsy Congratulations! (I am not able to comment on her blog.:( ) We are happy for her.

  4. I love this. It makes me pretty bittersweet. And I would gladly be your road trip buddy if you ever need one when going to visit her. 🙂 🙂 Love ya, Alli.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
