One of the main reasons that I love reading other blogs is because it allows me the opportunity to see the way others spend their free time, eat, work out, relax, essentially, how they live their daily lives. I love to travel, and in a way, I feel like blogging grants me the opportunity to do a bit of that every day.
I thought that considering how much I love to see and hear about all the amazing places in this world, it would be fun to share some of my favorite getaway locations with you.
Dan and I do most of our traveling during the summer months. It reminds me of when I was a kid and we would go on family vacations. Of course, being the youngest, I always found myself sandwiched between my brother and sister. Luckily, we now do the majority of our traveling by plane, or I ride in the front seat. My how times have changed.
The last couple summers have included trips to the Midwest and East Coast as that is where the majority of our family and a lot of our friends still reside. Two summers ago, we actually did what we called a cross country tour and headed to New York, Boston, Cape Cod, and Chicago over the course of 10 days.
That trip holds a special place in my heart as it was when I first met Dan’s family and friends, he met my sister and friends, and surprise, told me he loved me while we walked the streets of downtown Chicago. My first time telling him was far less romantic. But I’ll save that story for another day.
