Roadtrip to see Galzinbrad

Good bye Maine- LM and Esther on the Sunset Road porch.
Galz-in-brad- n. Laurie Haynes Burlington's Furman girlfriends and Brad Fugate.
On August 8 Galzinbrad gathered at a gorgeous rental cabin in Blue Ridge, Georgia to celebrate our collective 35th birthdays. We talked, we hottubbed, we cooked, we ate, we drank, we played games, we talked, we laughed and yes, we cried. When the time came to leave Sunday morning, I didn't want to go home.
First, how did I get there? Great question. Being in Maine on vacation just before our weekend, I hitched a ride with Brad in Boston on Thursday morning. We cruised down the east coast for 2 days crankin' it roadtrip style.

Gorgeous skies somewhere.Creepy rainy skies in Pennsylvania. We saw a tornado touch down near here!Evening skies in Virginia.
On Thursday night we pulled into Roanoke, VA to spend the night at the Burnett house. Michelle Burnett was already gone on her way to Galzinbrad weekend but we did get to see Stella, Thom and Thom's mom, Edie. Thanks for the hospitality Burnetts and the rockin eggs on Friday morning Thom!
Edie had gone school supply shopping that day and all the school supplies were sitting out for the Burnett girls.
