On our way to IL!


After all this time together, Weez will finally get to meet my extended family this weekend! And I cannot wait to show him (and my ring!) off :) I couldn’t be more proud of the man I love, his character, his soul, his heart. He’s amazing and I know my entire family will love him too.

And not only will I have the pleasure of showing Weez off to my whole family, but I am honored to be present at the wedding of one of my dear cousins! My extended family mean the world to me and I have so many wonderful memories growing up with them, the family reunions, and parties. Weddings are the best places to celebrate family and love.

So this weekend, we’ll be traveling to small town Illinois to be with my dad’s side of the family when my cousin, Ryan, gets married to his beautiful fiancee, Sara (my soon to be cousin in law! Yay!)!
I couldn’t be more excited to see my cousins, aunts and uncles, and celebrate the addition of a new woman to the Fortin side of the family :) Welcome to the madness, Sara!

Do you like going on long road trips?
I love road trips! I prefer driving through the night, so that you don’t waste an entire day on the road. We’re leaving at 6PM tonight and will be with friends and family by 2PM on Friday. How perfect! We’ll still have most of Friday to enjoy once we get there!

What’s the farthest you’ve driven for a weekend trip? 
I think this’ll probably be the farthest I’ve ever pushed it. 32 hrs of driving for 48ish hours with our family? Totally, 110% worth it in my books!

    OOo have fun in Illinois. I grew up there!! I love road trips but haven’t been in a while. I drove from Dallas to Springfield, IL in a weekend before (12 hours) and it was crazy long!
