Hop into my suitcaseCome along as I travel around the world!

  • Sister failure here.⁣
⁣
We went to Disney World almost six months ago and I was supposed to send my sister all of the photos I took on my phone while we were there about five and a half months ago...and I still haven’t done it. 😬⁣
⁣
I’m officially making it my goal for the week to get prints ordered and sent her way. ⁣
⁣
Do you think it will happen?! 🤔

  • I have a new favorite thing to do during the summer in Chicago.⁣
⁣
On Friday night, a couple of friends and I went to Millennium Park to hear the Grant Park Orchestra perform their “Envelope Please” show. It was a montage of songs from various Tony, Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winners.⁣
⁣
It was the perfect night. The weather was amazing. I was with two great friends who I really enjoy spending time with. We had fun snacks and drinks. The music was great.⁣
⁣
If I had to describe my ideal summer night in Chicago, this was it and I was so glad to start the weekend with such a happy heart. ⁣
⁣
So now you know what my favorite summertime activity in Chicago is but there are lots of activities that I love doing during summers in Chicago.⁣
⁣
In my latest blog post, I list many of those things I love. If you’re planning a trip soon, this is the perfect place to start your planning!⁣

  • From sea to shining sea, happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸
  • According to the calendar, today is National Alaska Day. Who knew there was such a thing but apparently there is.⁣
⁣
So here is a photo of my favorite activity from Alaska - riding the Alaskan Railroad from Anchorage to Denali National Park.⁣
⁣
I splurged and sat in the front of the train with the glass ceilings. There was also a little patio off the back of the car and that’s where I spent a lot of my time because I enjoyed watching the countryside go by as we traveled along.⁣
⁣
I loved when the crew would spot an interesting animal (moose!!! a family of swans!!) and the train would screech down to a crawl so all of us passengers could catch a glimpse of the animals.⁣
⁣
What a great experience! ⁣

  • 5 years ago I was headed Greece to meet up with these beauties in Skiathos.⁣
⁣
How about a reunion @amycrichton @cindyrmuller ? 😊
  • According to the forecast, summer might finally be arriving in Chicago next week. While I appreciate mild temps and rainy days, I’m ready for some sunshine and to leave my jacket at home. ⁣
⁣
I’m also looking forward to some of my favorite summer activities in Chicago - like spending an afternoon at Wrigley Field. ⁣
⁣
It’s the end of June and I still have not been to Wrigley this year - not sure what’s up with that but I need to change it soon! ⁣
⁣
What’s your favorite summer activity?
  • Who’s visiting at least one National Park this summer?⁣ ⁣
⁣⁣
This photo was taken in June 2016 when my mom, sister, niece, nephew and I set out for Yellowstone National Park. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We drove through South Dakota on the way, which allowed us to check out the Badlands and Mount Rushmore too.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We loved Yellowstone. There was so much to see, including these bison right inside the entrance to the park. They were shedding their winter hair at the time. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you are lucky enough to be visiting one of the National Parks this summer, tell me which one(s) below in the comments.⁣⁣
