The close of summer means the end of lake time. I hate feeling cooped up at home so I am glad to begin that always exciting, sometimes arduous process of planning trips to keep me sane and adventurous. So far I plan on visiting NYC to see my BFF Emily as well as journey to the opposite coast to Portland to stay with Lindsay and Melissa. Also in progress…an European vacation with my mom (who know what crazy adventures we will get ourselves into when we are subsiding on mostly wine and cheese?). We are trying to narrow down where we want to go in Europe, which is like trying to figure out which is your favorite Muppet–you love them all (maybe that analogy applies only applies to me). Any travel plans in the works for you, gentle readers?
