In My Suitcase

Cherry Blossoms

One day early this month, we were sitting at the breakfast table going over what we’d each be working on that day. O was deciding whether he’d drive to Baltimore to check on our renovation project that morning or the next and I was planning on laundry and the park. I realized somewhere between making breakfast and clearing my plate that this was one of the last days the D.C. Cherry Blossoms would be in full effect. If you’ve never seen the Cherry Blossom Festival, pull out your phone and add it to some to-do list in your Notes app because guys, It’s magic. Magic for free! We’re never really spontaneous on weekdays but on this particular morning we found ourselves packing lunches and loading up the car for a day in the city. 

Travel Favorites

Tomorrow, we head to the lakehouse in Windsor, Ontario. I’ve gotta say, winter packing is my least favorite because of all the stuff required for cold weather! I’m super competitive-with myself most of all-and am absolutely determined to fit every single thing we need into two bags and a carry on. Here are a few of my travel favorites, including the packing cubes I get asked about every time I pack!!
