A Thousand Miles Seems Pretty Far...


A thousand miles does seems pretty far... but what about

24,972?

That's the number of miles Zach and I have driven (combined) in order to see each other over the past two and a half years. I started keeping a log on my computer back in 2008, and as of last weekend, we can officially say we've driven around the entire world for each other (24,901 miles). While being in a long distance relationship isn't exactly ideal, I try to be a jar-half-full kinda girl, so our little around the world milestone is cute, right?


It can be a little crazy at times -- sometimes driving 5+ hours for 2 hours together. But I know we'd both do it again in a heartbeat; we definitely make the best out of our situation and truly cherish the time we get to spend together. We've gotten to travel to a lot of places in order to visit each other: Baltimore, Roanoke, Raleigh, Jacksonville, Parris Island, Winston-Salem, Durham, & New Bern, just to name a few. It's always fun to add a new city to our map :)

Plus, only two more years until our long distance relationship can turn into a normal relationship. Until then, I guess the next milestone would be the distance to the moon? 238,857 miles. Oh, boy..
