Well, a magical thing happened yesterday.
The Word Press gods smiled down on this here little blog, and my post We are all travelers here was Freshly Pressed.
This was my second foray into the FP world, and I have to say I am just as humbled, honoured, and jazzed as I was the first time.
But more than anything, I am so excited to meet all you new fab chaps that have stopped by my little slice of the internet.
Thank you all so much for coming over, leaving a note, liking a post, or just taking a peek around.
Here at Rant and Roll we like to have a good time. So please, put on some sweet tunes, limber up those limbs, and have one sweet mad dance party.
I am working on a longer piece for Friday’s post, but in the interim, please enjoy this sneak preview:
In our hotel suite, we ate sushi and drank diet coke. My sisters gave themselves pedicures in the bathroom, and I practiced putting in my contact lenses.
That night I slept, but the butterflies in my stomach and the persistent buzz of a malfunctioning air conditioner ensured that I slept little.
The morning of the wedding broke absolutely beautiful. It was to be a hot, sun-drenched day, perfect for a garden ceremony and dinner.
The first person to arrive was our photographer, my soon to be sister in-law Vanessa.
“Getting here was crazy!” She exclaimed. “There’s this crazy burnt-out semi-truck taking up space on the number 1! Traffic was moving so slow, I didn’t think I was going to make it on time!”
A burnt out semi-truck?
Tune in Friday to read the full story!
Same bat time, same bat channel.
And in the mean time, let’s end on a laugh, shall we?

It was well deserved! I know you’ll be on freshly pressed again soon :) :)
Thank Andy! Your comments and support always make my little heart smile. :)
you are a condor(ess), riding the dizzying spiralling updraft of neverending fame& recognition. (soon, if not awlreaddee, yawl’ll need a cave in the woods to occasionally sit and just listen to the buzz and knocking of air molecules together.)
Man, I want to go to that cave so badly! That sounds absolutely delightful. :)
And thank you! Such a nice note puts a smile on my wacky face!
