Taking the Show on the Road, A Very Long and Winding Road

Hi ya’ll… I’ll be able to get away with saying y’all so much more when we get back from this insane trip of ours!

I can’t believe it’s already here. I knew the month in between the road trips would fly by, but it went even faster. Lightning speed and even faster some days.

But in less than a week, we’ll be taking to the road again. I briefly mentioned it last month, but in case you missed it or need a refresher… we will be road tripping across the southern states stopping at BBQ competitions in Missouri, Tennessee and Florida throughout the month of October and into November. I keep using the word “crazy” to describe this trip and it really can’t be described by less because I feel quite crazy to be doing this. The craziest part, for me anyway, is keeping my entire shop running while on the road. I’ve kept it open on past trips with just a few exceptions, but this time it will be totally different. Instead of coming home and furiously catching up like a madwoman, I am going to attempt to do it all* from our various home away from homes. It’s going to be interesting, that’s for sure.

I’m so happy that my husband has these opportunities to compete at such prestigious events and that I can actually tag along with him!! Looking back over this past year, this rollercoaster of a year, it seems like it was all a big set up for this one big giant trip! Either way, it’s going to be fun, it’s going to be different, and of course, it’s definitely going to be crazy.

*I can’t do it all by myself though, my dear friend Jamie will be stepping in again to run the “home office” and I love her so very much for it!!

I believe in magic. I believe in the power of true love. I believe in fairy tales and happy endings. And I live to create stationery and art for the young at heart to allow my fellow dreamers to treasure all of life’s most wondrous moments!
