In My Suitcase

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!!

New York Part 2

If you’re on the edge of your seat after reading about our first day in New York, you’re in luck! If you forgot that we were ever in New York since it was almost a month ago now, you’re in luck too! Here’s Part Two. We decided to spend our first full day of the trip in Brooklyn, since that was where we were staying and would be heading back into the city for dinner with one of my closest friends.

10 Tips for Traveling with Littles

Thanksgiving is notoriously the “biggest travel week of the year” and while we are staying home and hosting for the first time in many years, we are no strangers to travel with kids.

Let me tell you, we learned a thing or two.

Kids will always throw you curveballs, but I pulled together the things that we found most helpful for traveling with kids and while these particular things apply more to vacation and further distance travel, hopefully there are takeaways for you if you’re braving travel this week!

Museums in the Fall

There is something absolutely magical about the East Coast in the fall. We’ve lived here for six years, are roughly 40 minutes outside of D.C. and realize far too often that we don’t take advantage of it enough. O and I decided earlier this year to make Saturday our “family days” full of exploring and last week I just had the itch to drive to the city to let the kids adventure.
