This past week and a half has been SUPER crazy.
It all started when my sister and I had to fly from a show in freezing cold Omaha, Nebraska to Montego Bay, Jamaica for a few hours.
Yes, you read that right!
My sister is a musician and she was performing for one night on the KLOVE Cruise and the port for the cruise ship was in Jamaica. For about and a half, we had to drive along the Jamaican coastline from the airport to the shipport. I know it was for a short amount of time, but the little I got to see was so beautiful. I officially LOVE Jamaica! I really want to go back one day when we have a little more time. You know, at least 24 hours.
Got my passport and ready to go to Jamaica and Grand Cayman!

Leaving the port in Jamaica. I just wish I could teleport back to that moment.
So…let’s just not even talk about that random hair flying from the side of my head. I was just glad we were in warm Jamaica weather! #crazyhairdontcare
So we boarded the cruise ship, went to work, and went to sleep. The next morning we woke up in Grand Cayman which was just as beautiful from what I could see. Coming from Nebraska, I don’t think I ever appreciated warm weather as much as I did that day.
Only one of two photos from our thirty minutes in Grand Cayman. About to board the shuttle headed to Boston via Atlanta.
Bye, bye cruise ship! It was nice knowing you for, you know, 12 hours! :)
The last warm weather we’d experience for a while.
From Grand Cayman, the plan was to fly into Boston with a layover in our home state of Georgia. Well, conveniently, this was January 28th–the day of the massive snowstorm/shut down in Georgia. As a result, we ended with about 6 delayed flights and 3 canceled flights. We were stuck at the Atlanta airport/airport hotel for 24 hours…and the worst part was, we live twenty five minutes away from the airport but because all of the roads were closed, we couldn’t even go home.
This is what kept us from moving for a little while.
If you’re wondering what the Atlanta airport looked like in every terminal for about 24 hours, this is it! #craziness
Eventually, we got on our Boston flight. Sadly, something went wrong when the plane was being de-iced, so we had to get off and start all over. Hours later, we were FINALLY airborne and on our way to Boston, an entire day and a half after we were supposed to be there. And the reason we were trying to get to Boston was to see our mom who was having a procedure done…we got there after it was all over, and end up having to jetset right after to get to the next show in Madison, Wisconsin. At the end of it all, though we were glad that we at least got to see our mom for a few hours right after she woke up! It ended all too quickly with another fun, yet busy week on the road with The Roadshow tour.
This was the view when we got to Madison, Wisconsin. Very pretty! But very cold. The complete opposite of the Caribbean.
Fast forward a few days, my BIRTHDAY happened! Soooo, I’m 24 now!
This picture commemorates the end to a very nice 24th birthday…the weather was pretty bad in Nashville that day, but it was still quite alright. A healthy portion of pasta and bread from Carrabba’s made it all better.
My birthday also commemorates the day I found my long lost reading glasses! And my favorite, favorite shirt from my favorite New York City coffee roaster.
After being on The Roadshow Tour and hopping across the country and the world, me and my husband made a collective decision to just relax for our birthday. We enjoyed a nice little trip around our second home in Nashville to WalMart, Walgreens, and CVS, ate at Carrabba’s, and then turned in early. I know that sounds like a lame birthday, but I can’t tell you how nice it was to just have a moment to do everyday things after being on the road.
Out of all this crazy travel over the past few weeks, I can honestly say that I’ve learned a lesson on patience more than ever before.
Even though it’s been crazy, I am so thankful for the experiences because without them, I wouldn’t know that I was capable of being able to get everything I need done despite a lack of sleep, 24 hours at the airport, and a crazy snow storm. I’m just thanking God that we’re all still alive…and have some fun stories to tell!
