4 things : Around the World

I'm on a mini around the world trip. I guess we could call it around the world in 20 days. San Diego - Iceland - Italy - Dubai - San DiegoI met someone while I was traveling in college and they explained to me that not all tickets are round trip. Some of them just keep going until you arrive back at home. I was so amazed and grilled him with tons of questions. I remember we were sitting on the edge of a cliff on the most western point of Portugal. He was Australian and said they were really common. I asked him so many questions that eventually he said "I have a girlfriend." I laughed a little because he caught me off guard. I assured him I wasn't faking my interest in RTW tickets just to hit on him. Boys. A few years later I took my own year long trip around the world. It was one of the coolest things I've ever done. If I had my way all my tickets would be around the world.

Reading - lonely planet Iceland. I am obsessed about going back for a longer trip. Loving - an exhibit I saw in Reykjavik called Twosomes. It has inspired me to set aside some time to delve through the archives and search for stories. Hopefully I'll be sharing what I find soon. Dining with - Cristina and this weekends beautiful bride and a few of her friends and sisters. Cristina was explaining that at her new job in Dubai she only has 22 vacation days. There was a slight pause and I was certain that they would say 22 it isn't so bad but instead their mouths dropped and in unison they said "no. Cri no. How awful" Let me clarify, in the States 2 weeks vacation equals 10 days. I'm very pro-vacation,  it sounds like the Italians know what they are talking about. Dreaming of Dubai I'll arrive tomorrow. I'm so curious to see what it all looks like. What is real and what is imagined? Happy weekend, Suzanne




Hope you all had a wondrous 4th of July.  This week has just flown by.  Wedding season is definitely in full swing.  We had two amazing weddings last weekend and a sweet destination wedding yesterday.  So that means more pictures coming your way.  I feel like we've really gotten into a good rhythm.  Finally, I am getting a little less shy and sharing a whole lot more of our lives and work with all of you.  So thanks for stopping by.  It means a lot.  Here are my 4 things for the week.

Drinking: Champagne.  Mike came home with a bottle of champagne earlier this week.  Considering the joy IPA brings him, I was swept off my feet.  Sometimes it's the little things that bring a slow smile to your lips.

Listening: To the Songza App everyday.  The concierge will help you pick out a playlist based on mood, activity or genre.  Recently I had a fun time with "Your own John Hughes Movie".

Loving:  Mike and I were listening to some old school Waylon Jennings the other day and he said he had a daydream once where he serenaded his grandma at a picnic to the tune of "Rambling Man"

Dreaming: We are dreaming about an upcoming wedding in Northern Italy this August.
