I’m writing my column from the coast of Maine this week. Everyone always says it’s such lovely country up here, and they are absolutely right! Just beautiful.

Driving up to Maine from Virginia was an adventure. We passed through SO MANY states! Growing up, I basically spent the first three decades of my life in Illinois and Missouri. But here on the east coast, I’m amazed at how many states you can drive through in a day or two. We hit Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Maine in relatively quick succession. Amazing for this Midwest girl to experience.
