June: The Month of Travel

June was the month-o-travel for me. Not counting the roadtrip drive-through bits (I’m looking at YOU, Virginia I-81 corridor that Never.Seems.To.End), I hit up five states plus the District of Columbia. It’s been great. It’s been a whirlwind. It’s been exhausting. It’s been invigorating. All rolled up into one.

It seems like my suitcase is in a perpetual state of being half-packed, but I don’t mind. That being said, I’m home now, and that’s where I really want to be. Especially since Daniel wasn’t able to go with me on this last trip when I visited family and I missed him like crazy.

Highlights of this past month: riding the D.C. Metro, Seeing Abe Lincoln up close, visiting Einstein, wandering through modern art, taking a sunset water taxi cruise across the Potomac, gazing at zoo animals, playing tag with my niece and nephew, wading out into the Atlantic ocean with cousins I hadn’t seen in ages, and having long conversations with my brother, sister-in-law, father, and husband.

Here’s some Instagram shots from my travels. So, what have you been up to this summer?

Taking a Breather

I’m so grateful to all my guest bloggers from last week for holding down the fort while I was away on vacation, but now that I’m back home I’m finding myself feeling a bit wiped out and I just need a bit of time to recuperate.

So, in the meantime, here’s some pretty pictures from the first couple of days from our trip! I’ll write again soon. Please bear with me while I get my landlubber legs and blogging brain back. 🙂



I’ll be back soon!

How I Pack for a Weekend Roadtrip

Last minute change of plans! What was going to be a cleaning marathon has turned into a road trip, instead. Whoo-hoo for flexibility. We’re meeting in the middle at my Dad’s house. It’s always good to get the family together in one spot. And now he has to do the cleaning, not me. Score!

Of course, packing for a trip, even a brief weekend one, brings about its own set of difficulties. One of my good friends has this task down to an art. Maybe I’ll ask her to tell you about her method one day, but for now, here’s our (not-quite-as-efficient) system.
