And So Begins Our Adventure

road trip in a vintage bug.

In a matter of hours, my husband Matt and I will be hitting the road and embarking on a 10-day road-trip across the East Coast! This is the first time I've ever really done anything like this. Most of my family vacations growing up consisted of a week at the cottage or an all-inclusive resort on a beach. I guess you could say we weren't much of the adventurous-type (having 5 young kids can do that to you). So, now's the time! I'm going to blog here and there throughout my trip as a way to document our first road-trip together.

Peaceful happiness - what a term! If you were to honestly evaluate your life against this idea, what would you find? Is majority of your life spent in a state of "peaceful happiness" or do you find yourself more commonly in a state of chaos? How would you define "peaceful happiness" anyway? Is that definition formed out of a cultural world-view or a godly world-view?
