(I finally found new silver sandals that I like almost as much as the ones I just wore past the breaking point!)
Gps says we will be in New Orleans in 7 hours and 41 minutes.
We packed the trunk of my little car to the brim, amazing how much fit. Under my feet is the tote bag I bought from Target right before our San Diego trip. It's sturdy, so roomy, and perfect for squishing under the airplane seat (or under your feet in the car).
