*listening: The Casting Out Go Crazy, Throw Fireworks "Quixote's Last Ride"

Tom and I were heading out of town to Delaware to see The Casting Out play a show on Saturday night when we passed the most adorable motel. It's made up entirely of old train cabooses painted in bright, cheery colors. How fun would it be to spend the weekend in your very own caboose?

What gorgeous detail on that dress, you look great. My home town had a restaurant by the rail road tracks that was made out of all rail cars, it was yummy and fancy.

Eli: Thanks! I love that time of day for taking photos.

ZombieLace: Thanks! Those are all good things to look like, I think.
