I have come to realize that I am having a difficult time in grasping just how much has occurred in these past few years. I used take pride in accomplishing a lot in a short amount of time. Looking back now, I feel as if I should have slowed down, and appreciated more of what I had in that moment (namely my naiveté and youth). With my 30th birthday being just around the corner, I am starting to feel my age.

I don’t know if you are in the same boat as I am, but I also feel as if this summer has flown by too quickly. Usually by now, my husband and I have already been on one or two camping trips. However, with the madness of these last few months, which includes relocating my store, our new income property, and Geoffrey soon becoming a full-time student (among other surprises), I have been praying for a bit of sanity to come my way in August. 

We have one big trip planned for the very end of the month. When we return, our lives will continue to change regardless of whether or not we are ready for them to.

Here are my favourite photos from our first trip as a married couple. They were taking only four years ago, but they seem to be part of another lifetime.

America Road Trip 3-1Today is the day that we are leaving for our great southwestern adventure! We had initially planned to leave on the 28th, but we were too excited with our itchy traveler’s feet and decided head out tonight instead.

I have a post scheduled for tomorrow, and on Monday March 2nd. After that, my next post will be the following Monday March 9th. In the meantime, you can see our travel adventures by clicking here. You do not need an account to do so. :-)))

See you in week and a half!

America Road Trip 1-1Family, friends, readers, wanderers. You have no have idea as to the monumental secret that I have been keeping from you. As someone who has been spilling on everything for the last year and a half, not being able to divulge any narratives on this particular adventure has been nothing short of torturous. Not physically, thank goodness, but certainly mentally. So what am I rambling on about? Well, perhaps the title might have tipped you off. WE ARE GOING ON VACATION TO AMERICA!

Ok, you’re probably thinking that I should calm down. No, I will not! The reason why I am so darn excited is because Geoffrey and I haven’t left the country in 4 years. The last real vacation that we went on consisted of us driving from Saskatchewan, Canada, through Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, South Dakota, and North Dakota for 6 days. It was our honeymoon, which we took a year after our wedding, and our goal was to stay at the Stanley Hotel in CO, since we are both Stephen King and paranormal enthusiasts. We stayed there for four nights, in a haunted room, and came back with the most insane stories ever. It was probably the best honeymoon that we could have ever had.

America Road Trip 2-1Our travel dates are from February 28 – March 7. This vacation is going to be a few days longer than our previous one, consist of a couple more states, and will include our pets. We will also be driving, of course. This is our itinerary:

Day 1: Saskatchewan to Montana
Day 2: Montana to Wyoming
Day 3: Wyoming to Colorado
Day 4: Colorado to Utah
Day 5: Utah
Day 6: Utah to Idaho to Montana
Day 7: Montana
Day 8: Montana to Saskatchewan

Now I require something from you. Please list in the comment section everything that you feel that we should see along the way. We need suggestions for amazing sites, spectacular meals, and possible meet-ups! Keep in mind that dog-friendly places are a must.

What do you think? Do you think that these are good states to visit?
