This morning I filled my duffle bag, packed up my laptop, and headed to the airport for Las Vegas. I'm only going for 3 days and two nights, so I just have a small bag and there's no sense in checking a bag. But whether it's a short trip, or 12 days in Europe, I carry on. A few years ago, in college (fine, it was more than just a few years) I was coming home from Mardi Gras and my foggy brain … [Read more...] about Why I Always Carry On
If someone stopped you, right now, and asked: what do you want more of in your life? What would you answer? Let's say it can't be a physical thing (aka, you can't ask for money). I know immediately what I would choose: travel. I've been fairly lucky to travel to a lot of places in my life.

Most of these things I don't know much about, and while he's thrilled, they seem unexciting. I want to really … [Read more...] about Gifting Memories
When Michael said he wanted to do Thanksgiving just the two of us, I was hesitant. I've NEVER spent Thanksgiving without my family. I cried before we left. I decided to get over it, it would be fun. And I can admit, Michael was completely right. Driving back yesterday from the Super 8 Motel in Childress (actually, really quite nice) Michael and I realized we have never really taken a vacation just … [Read more...] about Toast To Taos
Although I don't get to do it as much as I would like, traveling is a huge part of my life. I crave it. Michael and I have made it our mission to take at least one overseas trip every year. So far we've been successful. I was thrilled about today's linkup because I'll take any excuse to talk about previous travel experiences; good or bad. My worst and best vacation happen to be on the exact same … [Read more...] about My Worst and Best Vacation – #Blogtober14 Day 7
