TGIT, am I right? This week has been a whirlwind—truthfully, I don’t think that I ever really recovered from my trip to New York or losing an hour of sleep this weekend, so I’ve been feeling a little under the weather and decided to give myself a pass on getting blog posts up on time. I’m in town this weekend though, so it should be business as usual around here next week.
It’s been about a month and a half since we last checked in on life lately, so I thought this would be a fun post to end the week with. Maybe it’s just me, but it felt like January was the slowest month ever, and ever since February 1, time seems to be flying. But let me just say, I really hope spring weather finds us again soon because I am really tired of all my winter clothes and having to get bundled up to go everywhere. I’m ready for cute sandals and spring clothes!
UPCOMING TRIPS (!) /
Travel is one of my biggest passions in life, and always has been—so thank you for letting me share my journeys here with you! When I was a teenager, I used to cut out pictures from travel magazines and pin the places I wanted to go on the bulletin board over my head. I’m so grateful that ten years later, I have the time and money to travel often and love making it a priority in my life.
I’ve recently recapped my trips to Wisp Ski Resort, The Greenbrier, and New York City. I don’t usually travel this often this early in the year, but it’s been fun to have some wintertime escapes on the calendar. And since my social life at home isn’t as busy during hibernation season, I don’t have as much FOMO as I do when I head out of town in the summer.
Saturday after next, I’m heading to New Orleans, Louisiana for the second time. I’m going with my best friend from middle school, her sister, and my sister, Jennifer. We’ve snagged reservations at Commander’s Palace, but other than that, haven’t added too much to our itinerary, which I am actually thrilled about. We’re there for five days, so there’s more than enough time to explore leisurely, enjoy some jazz music with a to-go cup, take a historical tour, and eat a lot of amazing cajun food. My trip there in August 2016 stands out in my mind as one of the best trips I’ve ever taken, so I’m excited to get back—in slightly cooler temperatures!
Later this spring, I’m heading to Clemson to visit my sister, Lindsey, and Charlottesville, to visit my friend Molly for a great weekend of Virginia wine tasting. I also am so excited for the trip I’m taking to Key West over Memorial Day Weekend! I’ve never been to the Keys, but based on everything I’ve heard, I feel like I will be right at home on island time. I really enjoy maximizing corporate holidays at work, and after a stellar trip to Miami last Memorial Day Weekend, I knew I wanted to take advantage of the Monday off work. If you have any favorite places to eat or drink, must-see sunset spots, or recommended excursions, please let me know! Read more “Life Lately”
