On the way home from Fairhope last weekend the kids realized we would be traveling to Huntsville via Montgomery. To my kid’s way of thinking Montgomery is just a stone’s throw away from Auburn. So as soon as we got near the city they began to make their pitches.
Mom! Auburn is only thirty minutes away!
Not exactly, minion.
Mom! It could just be a quick trip!
It’s never a quick trip with you people.
Mom! We could go to Toomers!
I’m on Whole 30. Don’t tempt me.
And finally, “Well, you’re always saying you want me to love Auburn!”
So, even though the city of Auburn isn’t exactly on the way home I found myself turning onto I-85 towards Atlanta.
Fifty one miles later we were in Auburn. Don’t you just let out a breath you didn’t know you were holding when you get in to town? Only a few places affect me this way and Auburn is one of them.
