Road Trip // Day One { part one }

Wow. What an amazing adventure we embarked upon recently. As many of you know, my husband and I decided to move from Texas to California.
But, we did not decide to just move.... we decided to take the road trip of a life time. We planned a one week long road trip from Dallas, TX to Santa Barbara, CA, and let me tell you, it was phenomenal...
We took WAY too many pictures to post all in one blog post, so I figured the best way is to do it by days/sections. So, here is DAY ONE { part one } of the #winkelmeyermove! :)

On January 8th, we got a moving pod and loaded it up. All of our belongings were in there... clothes, dishes, some furniture, all of it. We locked it, then sent it on it's way. Thankfully, we were not dragging a big pod or trailer around with us. So all we had to worry about now, is getting ourselves together and ready to leave. 
On January 9th, we left Dallas at about 5 o'clock in the morning. We had been staying with my parents for the past two months, so we said a wonderful prayer with them, had a tearful good-bye, then we were on our way. Our first stop was of course... breakfast, { Starbucks blueberry muffins are my FAVE } but then we headed out of Dallas.

Our first planned stop was to these strange statues called "Huge Pair of Legs". And they are just as they sound... a pair of legs that are really large. They used to be all white with red stripes at the top like actual socks on feet, but as is clearly visible, graffiti has kind of taken over. Quirky? Yes! Cool enough to take pictures at? Maybe not. But, we did anyways!

Our next stop was to Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo. This is a public art installation and sculpture that consists of a line of Cadillac cars half-buried nose-first in the ground. Another quirky pit stop that was a blast to take pictures and videos of. 

After these two stops in Amarillo, the way we were going, there is pretty much nothing to see in Texas before the border. So, our next stop was the Texas//New Mexico border. I wanted to make sure to get lots of good pictures at all the borders we crossed, as they are significant to us moving states. So these pictures were extra special to me. :)

We did so much on our first day, so this is only half the fun we had. The other half will be posted tomorrow! :) I love sharing our adventure with you all. So I hope you continue on this journey with us...
