Any time an adventure ends, or comes to a close, it’s a little bittersweet. As though you are closing a chapter on a string of incredible, beautiful, sometimes irritating and often exhausting, moments that you can only relive through photographs. It is as such because, although you see the places I go through the bucket list, this adventure has been so much more.
Holding onto the very minute you felt free, and found your wings. Running across a field with the warmth of the golden hour on your face. Melted ice cream cones and drinks so strong you think you can dance. Sharing pancakes and coffee and stories. Falling asleep laughing. Making funny faces, and midnight swims. From graves that share your last name, to seeing someones dreams come to life. Staying up all night, singing show tunes, eating freeze dried bugs. Chasing sunsets and trading cupcakes. Long drives and hugs.
But more than anything, finding out how amazing the people in your life really are and not being able imagine your life without them.
That was my #mnbucketlistroadtrip.
