Sapphire bullets of Pure Love (aka The Vacation)
**we left immediately after the wedding to get to Albany, GA, thinking it would take until 1-2am to get there but ended up checking into the Motel 6 there around 9:30pm. The room was clean but in a sketchy part of town, so while I slept rather well, Christen was up once an hour to check on the car. It was good to get a headstart on our trip though!
