Having traveled solo by air dozens, if not hundreds, of times in my life, the routine of flying can often be lonely and monotonous. During the vast majority of my solo flights I've probably never said a word to anyone except airline personnel. However, that all changed one flight roughly 10 years ago when I strayed from my norm.

I love when the temperature starts to drop. For me it means pumpkin spice everything, football, and my favorite sweatshirt. However, if you live in a cold weather region, then you may not share my same enthusiasm. That said, no matter where you call home, “Old Man Winter” may stop in for an unexpected visit and it is time to get prepared.

My youngest son, 10-year-old Brady, has been Southwest’s biggest fan since as early as he can remember. He is autistic and has been fascinated with Southwest since the earliest flight he recalls—a trip to Disney when he was almost three. Just as much as Brady loves Southwest, I love to knit. So the idea of creating a Southwest teddy bear was right up my alley and it was so fun to make for him.

800 Miles_Photo 3.jpg

It happened just like in the movies—boy meets girl at a sweet wedding and the two immediately hit it off. But there was just one problem: she was headed back home to Atlanta, 800 miles away, and decided to leave it with an open-ended, "What happens in Texas, stays in Texas."

 

It did not stay in Texas. In fact, it ended up stretching across the better part of two years—much of that time spent in the air and on Southwest runways—doing everything but staying in one place.

 

We are Ansley and Sam, and this is our story.
