the adventure begins tonight

So friends. This is it. Less than five hours and I will be on my way. First stop: Memphis. Graceland. TO SAY THAT I'M EXCITED WOULD BE A GROSS UNDERSTATEMENT. This day I've spent packing and getting the van all ready has just been kind of surreal...like I can't believe I'm actually going on this epic road trip. It hasn't sunk in. I'm pretty stoked on how my van looks (although I've hardly started to fill it yet, so we'll see how I feel at the end). My boyfriend helped me hang the rod for the curtains and a rod at the back to hang hangers (yay!). Everything I've bought for the van, decor wise, has been secondhand (except the tension rods which I purchased at a department store in the bath aisle). I love all the colors and textures! The van got a brand new battery and new wiper blades, too so she's a happy camper (haha) as well!

Between the shows my boyfriend is playing and doing touristy stuff I'm hoping to find time to upload pictures and recount my adventures! However, if you'd like to see what I'm up to between posts you can always follow along on my Twitter and Instagram, which I update frequently. Oh, and if any of you have recommendations for things to do in Memphis or the surrounding area, definitely let me know! Peace!
