Travel Tuesday


I’m so excited to post the first of many posts that will focus on — travel! That’s right, folks, J-Wick and I will be headed overseas in May 2014. In the interest of not sounding snooty, it is only because of some very, very fortunate financial circumstances and generosity that we were able to even consider this trip. We are so grateful for this opportunity, and we know that it may be once in a lifetime, so we’re going to enjoy it. We’ve always heard that we should travel while we’re young, and we’re so blessed that we will be able to!

J is already apologizing for the fact that he will be completely focused (ha, get it?) on photography for most of the trip and I’ll rarely see him. But, we are travelling with many dear friends so I’m sure I’ll find someone to walk with.

I plan to post interesting sites we will see, tips for travel, packing ideas, and, of course, travel-ready style! I’m so excited for this series of posts. It’ll give me something to focus on so I don’t get too impatient for May to get here! I have a countdown in the sidebar.

Happy Tuesday dears! Where has been your favorite vacation so far? Where is your dream vacation?

P.S. – This is the Eagle’s Nest. Wow.
