travel bug.

I’ve caught the travel bug.

I know that seems a bit weird since I can barely get through a trip to Target without fussiness from a certain small family member, but I am hungry for travel. J and I are usually preparing for a trip to NYC at this time of year, enjoying a day at the US Open and spending the rest of the time roaming and being tourists.

For obvious reasons (eh hem, 2 month old), we aren’t going to NYC this year and that’s ok by me, but I’m still itching to take a trip – albeit someplace close and easy…and kid friendly. I’m not totally sure where this is, but if you have ideas for places to visit within a couple of hours of Chicago, I’m all ears (and packing our bags).

J suggested camping. I’m not entirely sure that he was joking either, but so that we’re clear, I refuse to entertain a camping trip with a two month old unless “camping” actually means nice hotel outside of Chicago with a spa. Ha.

We do have a couple of upcoming trips (and hope to pencil a few more onto the calendar quickly!)…

We are going to Mexico in December, so on Saturday we got Simon a passport. Taking his passport photo was pretty funny (J had to hold his flailing arms while I stood over him trying to get him to look up) – here are the outtakes. The many faces of Simon :).


I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this kid – also, I’m biased, but he’s pretty stinking cute.

Note to self: Iron the white sheet before you use it again for a photo backdrop.

What are you planning for the upcoming long weekend?

Simon is wearing baby gap stripes (similar). He has a similar onesie in several different colors and they are my favorite!

  1. SIMON! Oh my gosh. Al those faces. Love it! And the wrinkled sheet totally just looks like he’s hanging out in bed! Love.

    Camping. Sounds. Awful.

    Spa. Sounds. Perfect.

    I told Sasha I wanted to go to Paris this December with Isla and he laughed at me. So I suggested Hawaii. He’s not into my ideas. I am having a major travel bug too!! Maybe we take a girls trip πŸ˜‰

    I LOVE the new blog layout and fonts and everything!!! (Claps hands excitedly!)
