#window to the past and the future

And on Saturday I caught the bus to Baton Rouge to visit a bloggy friend, and her sweet family.
Spent the day with @artsycraftybabe and her über-cute daughters in Baton Rouge

Despite being quite ill for the last two days (Beki, I hope I didn’t make your baby sick!) I had a wonderful time.

But I’ve come to realize that, while I love being in new places, I don’t enjoy plane travel or hotels very much. My pillow was too thick, and they could offer me nothing thinner, so I slept poorly. Maybe this means a lot more road trips, and Air BnB accommodation (taking my own pillow), in my future.

  1. The lovely caterpillar got me here. I was a little shocked to see a ship out of the blue though, pun intended :)

  4. Lovely lovely photos and I know what you mean about pillows. I like mine thick co never sleep well when not at home. I have a wee trick for that now though – get a (dry!) towel from the bathroom and fold it enough times to be the right thickness, then cover it with a pillowcase and bob’s your uncle. Works for me in that I stuff hotel pillows with a towel….
