And in other exciting news, I've recently booked a couple of vacations coming up and it's getting me excited for spring and summer! At the end of May, a good friend and I are traveling to England for a couple of weeks! I'm beyond thrilled! I used to live there as a teenager and I miss it dearly. Excited to finally go back. We will be exploring England and Scotland mainly, but also plan on heading into France as well. And in August, we have booked a family vacation in Cape Cod. I love the cape! Truly one of the gems of New England.
With all this exciting travel coming up, my mind went reeling back to last summer, thinking about our family vacation in Bar Harbor, Maine. It was a beautiful week! We filled our time with so much activity that it was exhausting, but thrilling. And so I thought I'd share just some photos of our time there since I wasn't posting on a blog last summer.

So, you see why I'm so excited to get on these trips? I love winter, as I've said many times before, but tomorrow is March and I'm ready for winter to be over and to get out and explore!
