Usually every summer Mr. W and I plan some big excursion, last summer was our road trip through France/Spain, the summer before that was our very first trip to Puerto Rico, and before that was Costa Rica, and before that, was Portugal, and folks I can keep going all the way back to my very first summer vacation to Venezuela the summer after I graduated highschool.
So it seems strange for this to be the first summer with out a big big trip to look forward to, BUT
this summer we're going to try to get some projects done around the house. Spend some time in the city (summer really is the best in Chicago), and head to the mitten to visit with my bestie who is making the trip from France.
We're also planning some short little trips here and there.
I'm very much looking forward to the first summer weekend at my parents new chalet.
Also hoping to explore parts of Michigan that I never knew existed before, it amazes me that this photo was taken 3 hours away from my parents house and from where I grew up! Only 1 hour away from my aunts house where I spend tons of time in the summer.
...and if we play our cards right, hopefully, we'll still get our trip abroad (technically) although us Michiganders don't think of Canada as a far exotic land, I've always wanted to visit Montreal.
