lately i've been jonesing for a trip to montana or wyoming. why montana/wyoming, you may ask? well, the truth is i have never been to either of these states, but i have seen the anthony bourdain: no reservations episode in which he travels to "big sky country". maybe its just because of his wit and charm, maybe its because he always eats great food with great people, maybe it is the vast blue horizon against jagged mountain ranges, but i always think to myself - i want to go to there!

the nice thing about this seasonal work life that we are living, is the opportunity for travel and exploration in the off-season. and while johnny has dreams of skiing in the rocky mountains and i would love nothing more than to explore yellow stone national park, the process of getting there could be just as much fun. can you say, road trip!?

but here's the catch: bring only the necessary (which, of course, includes sketchbook, camera, handsewing, and some rockin' tunes) and snuggle up in the passenger seat to enjoy watching the country go by. and one must be comfortable and stylish while doing so, which is why i would choose an oversized sweater, some moccasins, and a giant travel bag to haul a few jersey dresses and a stack of must-read books in.
