off to europe

Today’s the day!  We’re headed off to Paris and from there Burgundy, then Switzerland, then down through Italy and finally ending in Rome.  We’ll be gone over two weeks and will, of course, be sharing it on Instagram! A giant thank you to all of you for your advice and travel suggestions over the past few months.  If you want a peek a the full itinerary, catch them here and here.

This trip is different than any other.  In the 4 years I’ve been blogging I’ve taken a multitude of trips… 7 trips to Hong Kong and China, 3 trips to India, 2 trips to Hawaii, 2 to Mexico and countless other weekends here and there throughout the states. On all of these trips, I’ve continued to blog every day whether it was for business or for vacation.  This will be the first time in four years that I’ll have taken a vacation free from any work – blogging or otherwise.  I think for our fifth anniversary, there is no better way to spend it than not working.

I do feel bad leaving you all hanging while I’m off, so I will give you some activities!

First, I cannot wait to see what you all will make for our first ever reader DIY challenge! You have until Monday the 27th to create a project for the challenge! Full details here.

If you’re in the Columbus area – you have got to check out the Columbus Decorators Show House.  If you like design, you’ll love it.

Last, I might not be posting on the blog, but I’m definitely going to be active on Instagram!  I’ll be showing you all peeks of the travels as well as some of the outfits I’ve created out of my seriously edited travel wardrobe.

I hope you guys are all going to be back here on the 27th with a Reader DIY project!  Can’t wait to see you then!
