after four days, moving three apartments, and much sweating, we are finally at our first stop : memphis!
the best part? riding in a 24 foot truck and hitting every bump in the road that arkansas has to offer.
whew! moving is hard. but we're here with family, friends and a sweet pool for a brief respite.
if traveling is in your future, you might need a good granola recipe for the road. just sayin'!
i've been experimenting with granola recipes for over a year and i FINALLY have one that i am proud of. really excited about this! put any combination of dried fruits and nuts with this and make it your own.
back on the road! i'll be back in a few days! don't worry!
