This has been a post that I’ve been pretty excited to write and share with all of you but hadn’t had the time to sit down and write it until now.
Technically, I shouldn’t have time now but some events were postponed this week and my energy has been moved onto other (and sometimes better) things.
At least the ones that are set in stone. The other is dependent on scheduling later in the year. So, for now, let me share what’s in store for this blog coming up (very soon)!
England / Ireland | May 19 – June 3
It has been 11 years since I took a trip much like this one (only in reverse) and ever since, I have wanted and have worked hard to go back. I will be going with a group of Graphic Design students and a professor that I’ve traveled with before from the University. I knew as soon as it came up on discussion again around the department that I just had to jump at the chance to go. It’ll be nice, after the semester and season we’ve had at work, to be able to get away for a little bit. To disconnect my work email and enjoy the trip for what it is.
Of places that are on the MUST SEE list? Cliffs of Moher, the Blarney Stone, the Tate Modern and I would most definitely like to take a trip on the London Eye just ONCE.
Yes, I know it’s a huge tourist trap.
Lots of things to do and see and drink.

Omaha, Nebraska | June 28 – July 2
Not long after returning home, my Mom, Sarah (from beauty-bitch.net) and I will be heading up to Omaha, Nebraska! Last year, Sarah and I went and we stayed for less than 48 hours and we knew we wanted to go back for a little longer. Now we’re heading up for my aunt and uncle’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. Honestly? I can’t imagine myself lasting 50 years with another person.
But, I truly give it up to them that they’ve made it work with all the difficulties that they’ve had.
Places that are definitely on the to do list include: Bohemian Cafe (mmmm, dumplings and duck), the zoo (I mean, honestly…that zoo), Joselyn Museum, THE Goodwill, the record store we passed and never made it to. Yes, there are places to go and explore in places like Omaha.
Is there any thing that you’re looking forward to now that the weather is getting warmer? Trips planned for the summer? Year?
