Lemmegetthisstraight: you want to take a ten month old on a red-eye flight to Europe and then travel around on more planes, trains and on foot? Are you nuts? It sounds crazy even to me. But here’s the deal. I’ve been working since I was 15 years old. The first few years of my career I worked three jobs to afford Cobra insurance because my first tv job did not give me health insurance. I worked two years straight without a day off. One job lead to another job and they always want you to start tomorrow. You always think they’ll be time. To take that trip you’ve always wanted. A long vacation. A chance to explore. But then 10, 15, 20 years goes by. The situation is never perfect. If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s now is the only time we have. And as you may have heard my schedule just opened up. Smile. If not now, when? You just gotta do it. So hell yes I’m strapping my ten month old baby to my back along with my husband. (Not on my back but you get the picture) and heading out to do something I love: explore. travel. learn. Wish this crazy woman and her awesome husband luck! I’ll be blogging as much as I can from wifi hotspots….in between naps and such. Talk soon. xo
lives in Chicago with her husband, her son and their two dogs. This blog is a toast to all the great and beautiful things in life with an emphasis on FOOD, TRAVEL, DESIGN, AND FASHION. It is a conscious effort to not miss the moments in life, to savor each day and to always be planning the next great adventure…whether you are traveling to Chicago or anywhere in the world. Cheers!
