the road trip

A road trip with a little moxie

Hey there friends! My name is Madison, and you are currently reading my first ever blog post, so bare with me. If you, reader, are a stranger and have no clue who I am, I will tell you a little bit about myself. I am 20 years old and this summer I live in my home town of Spanish Fort, Alabama. During the school year I attend the Capstone of Higher Learning, better known to the rest of the world as The University of Alabama- home of The Crimson Tide. This fall, I will be a junior. I am majoring in Psychology and French, and I hope to go to medical school to be an OBGYN (if I can pass Organic this time around). I live with my roommate Erin. She is small, but she is fierce. My mother says our hobby is going out to eat, and I would have to agree with her. Most of the time we like to play card/board games with our best friends Ashlynn and Ansley, who’s names my parents always mix up. My boyfriend, Ryan, is usually there making us laugh and beating us at Mario Cart.

My faith is a big part of my life, but there is always lots of room for growth. My God is bigger than my anxiety and fears about the future. He has blessed me with two loving parents, Josie and Steve, who believe I am capable of anything and remind me so as often as they can. My little sister, Claire, is the kindest person you will ever meet when she isn’t hungry or tired. I don’t think I know anyone with a bigger heart than her or with better taste in music. We have two King Charles Spaniels, Duke and Daisy, who are the cutest dogs in the world (ok, maybe not Daisy, but absolutely Duke).

All this to say, I’ve created this blog to recount to you the many adventures of my summer road trip to San Francisco with my sister and mom. There is no doubt in my mind that it will be the trip of a lifetime filled with tomfoolery, amazing sights, and me daring Claire to interact with strangers in ways that make her uncomfortable.

Some highlights of our trip will include: the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Yosemite National Park, San Francisco, and most importantly, Bossier City, Louisiana (we’re seeing our grandparents on the way). So, stay tuned for pictures, videos, and tales from our whirlwind tour of the west. Maybe, this blog will continue after our adventures, but who knows what it will turn out to be. It


could be terrible, or it could be the best writing of our generation (which I highly doubt).

hoping you are at least entertained,
