nothin’ like a little ode to the great american road trip to celebrate throwback thursday – and luckily, we’re just a couple hours away from the start of it all, Route 66. we’re planning a big adventure this summer in seek of abandoned gas stations, greasy diners and turquoise jewelry (ok, maybe that’s just me), but until then, we decided to take a few day trips to check out our local stops, a few of which are in Victorville and the surrounding high desert area.
we had the best day. we ate Brian Burgers (made by Brian himself) at the Holland Burger Cafe, stopped for gas at the Mohawk Gas Station and listened to countless stories from friendly Route 66 Museum volunteers (while playing tunes from a real 50’s jukebox, might I add).
special appearances below by Elmer (as in the mastermind behind Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch, where all of these beautiful bottle trees live!) and my faithful Mini (as in Cooper) in the video below. xo, M0.
p.s. thank you, sweet husband of mine, for once again surprising me with the most perfect song for the most perfect of videos for the most perfect of days. i would walk 500 miles, love – especially if we ran out of gas. but not in these shoes.
