my favorite travel essentials

Hello!  I know it seems like I fell into a black hole since my last post, but I’ve been on the road since the end of June.  Not complaining, it’s been super fun!  From Santa Rosa Beach to Atlanta to Denver to Hunstville to Boston.  Lots of travel and all in less than three weeks.  I had plans to blog, but our schedule has been so on-the-go that it hasn’t been possible.  The good news is I’ve been making notes along the way on my favorite travel essentials (and new ones I’ve found) that I would love to share with you!  I’ll try to round up some family pics in another post for those of you interested.

These are my current travel faves that make living out of a suitcase stylish, enjoyable, and practical.  Nothing sponsored.

Below are all the links and explanations on everything, plus a few personal notes on what’s going on with us this summer.

happy 4th + fun links

Taking off to celebrate our favorite summer holiday.  This year will be unusual for our us, as two of our kiddos will be in different parts of the country on new adventures.  It’ll be fun to spend a little one-on-one time with our other two.  Fireworks and beach here we come!

Thankful for our wonderful country and all of the freedom we share.

Since I won’t be back until later next week, I’m leaving you with links to a few of my favorite goodies.  My very fave is less than $5…

weekend white

We’ve had some crazy weather this week.  It’s actually rained every day for the last three weeks.  This morning was sooooo much better than yesterday, which was scattered with tornadoes and rain storms.  We stayed home with the kids all day yesterday, since most everything was cancelled due to crazy weather.  I opened the front door early this morning and heard a choir of what sounded like a hundred frogs croaking from treetops – no birds today.  Currently dreaming of this summer scene.

Nothing like a classic, relaxing beach moment.  Speaking of which, I noticed Anthro is having a big tag sale.  Here are 3 white summer classics that caught my eye – all under $50:

catching up + classic must haves

This is my first morning of summer that I haven’t had to dash out the door by 7:30 with a kid or two.  Peter took my driving shift so I’m chillin’ with a reheated cup of coffee in a very quiet (for now) house.  There is a slow drizzle of rain outside and I can hear little birds busying about just outside our foggy kitchen window.  Thought I could take this breather to say hello and share with you a few pretty and practical things I’ve found lately.
