We’re headed to the Lake next week and your girl is pumped. My dad will turn 60 this fall so we decided to all go away to celebrate before the madness of football season. We’ll be driving three hours south, caravan style, and for me packing is always the most crucial part of a trip. Let’s dive into my lake-trip (or any summer trip) essentials!
It’s traveling season! This summer is busy for us, as always. I’m the trip planner in our family and few things get me more excited than researching to find a gem of a hotel for our trip.
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.
Team Atogwe is off to the Lone Star State!
Los Angeles was kind of a fast and furious trip, but we always try to strike a perfect balance between exploring for food and getting all.the.sleep. We were only there for three full days but snuck in a great balance of both!
Happy Friday, Friends! As you’re reading this, I’ll be sleeping in, waiting for room service on a long weekend getaway to L.A!
