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!!
We spent last week in New York and as suspected, we had the absolute time of our lives. This was our fourth trip to New York together and every time we go, we discover new favorites and we can never find the time to see everything on our list!
I’m married to a master surpriser.
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. I actually put together this travel video (at the end of this post) in August when we returned home from over two weeks in Italy with our then ten month old and two and a half year old. 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!
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.
