Country Living Excursion

Yesterday, while sifting through my collection of decorating magazines, I picked up this month's issue of Country Living and whilst basking in all the beautifully photographed articles I spotted the advertisement about their upcoming Women Entrepreneur event.  They are celebrating women who "bank on their bliss"  (love it!) and featuring leading women entrepreneurs in creative industries.  So, my mom and I will be packing our trunks and hitting the road.  Our little town in Canada is about 5-6 hours from the bright lights of Chicago which means it's a proper road trip.  Anything that is over 3 hours away, requires crossing borders or boarding ferries is thus a proper road trip and in my books requires all the accompaniments of said road trip.  1) picnic snacks that can be nibbled in the car or made into a picnic lunch if a location is spotted  2) custom created road-trip music designed with scenery and destination in mind.  3) pocket camera...something you can take a great picture with but can hold with one hand out of a window.  4) good, old-fashioned road maps...no GPS!  Preferably one that can only by spread out on a car hood the size of a 1950's Cadillac.  5) A good friend!        

Hope you can make it to this event to share and meet with other women who "bank on their bliss" (still love it!).  Hope to see you there!
