12 hours of traveling on wednesday and 3 more on thursday morning, and we finally pulled into wheaton! it's even cuter than i remembered.
this was my view for 15ish hours. i'm just glad i wasn't the one driving the uhaul with no cruise control. poor james. thankfully the uhaul got a wopping 8 miles to the gallon :)
we got to cross over the MS river twice in one day. once james almost got run into the river by a huge 18 wheeler. it was a bit scary for both of us.
and then we were finally in illinois. only 350 more miles to wheaton...
fyi - don't drive from ms to illinois for the scenery. i'll save you the time - this is it between mississippi, tennessee, arkansas, missouri, and illinois. pretty farmland, but not too entertaining.
and then we were finally here. the kents flew up to help us move in and this is what our apt looks like now. off to unpack more boxes.
White Walls + Contrasting Molding = HEAVEN
