Hi friends! I cannot believe it’s almost time to start packing for Europe! To be honest I am super nervous about leaving Noah for two weeks. If you’ve been following for a while you know Dave and I travel a good bit without Noah (and every time is really hard for me) but this will definitely by far be the longest we have gone away. We usually do 3-4 day trips and this trip is two weeks! I know lots of people choose to take their kids with them everywhere but this is what works for us in this season of life. Noah gets to stay in his routine and we get to actually see all the sites and stay out past 7:30 pm. So anyway…
We have been talking about a second baby so I told Dave if we are going to do any big trips, let’s do it now because it might not happen again for a while! So here we are! We are going to London, Wales, Paris, northern France, and Amsterdam. One of my best friends, Hannah(**says in best British accent), is from/lives in the UK so she will be our tour guide! And one of our other best friends, Joey, is coming with us so it’s going to be an awesome trip!
I am so excited!!! The food! The history! The food! The views! I am picturing myself with a cocktail in hand and the Eiffel tower in the background just living my best life.
I have been watching the weather and trying to figure out what to pack. We are moving around quite a bit so I only want to bring the one suitcase. Plus I will need room in my bag for all the European treasures I find(my first stop is going to be TopShop for this jacket.) So I am packing light. I am packing pieces that are light, comfortable, and can transition nicely into the evening so I don’t always have to change my outfit twice every day. I will be doing a full trip recap so stay tuned for that but in the meantime, I thought I would put together a little list of things I am packing, vacation outfit inspo, and my favorite travel must-haves!
