It's almost time for Sweetie and I to go on our honeymoon... We're going on the first week of August, actually! We've had the date booked for over a month, but we had no idea what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go... Right up until Sunday night (actually, our search parameters got narrower the Friday before, after I realized that the visa in my passport that allows me to re-enter the US had expired... No overseas honeymoon for us!). So, you might ask, where are Sweetie and I going? Drum roll please... No drum role?.. Budget cuts?.. Oh well...

We're going to ride a train! Two actually! Now, this may seem a bit boring, so allow me to explain: We're flying to Los Angeles, spending a day and then taking the Coastal Starlight (sleeper) up the coast to Seattle. We'll spend two nights there before hopping on the Empire Builder (sleeper again) to Chicago. One more night and a short flight back home. We're very excited!!
