Today, I’m embarking on a 1,426 mile road trip with my two of my childhood besties, Amanda and Tammi. We’re headed from Houston (100 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico) to northern Wisconsin (100 miles south of Canada, eh) for the next week.

Is there anything else that screams “SUMMER!” quite as loudly as that? We’ve never done anything like this together, so it’s sure to be an adventure!
In preparation for our trip, we’ve been making some playlists on Spotify (good lord, what did I do before this thing? So useful!): one for road trip songs, one for summer songs.
