455 Days Out

Between now and my wonderful excursion to Europe for 6 weeks backpacking with the kiddos, are several smaller trips to help me prepare for what is ahead.

This weekend holds the beginning of one of those trips. I am leaving tomorrow to drive down to Pensacola, Florida (where I grew up). The girls are spending Spring Break with their grandparents, while i head off to Sin City for the first time. I've always wanted to see the lights of Las Vegas strip, and this weekend, I finally get to!

When I return to Florida, I get to spend several days in the sand and sun with the kiddos before returning home.

This is the first vacation I have ever planned out on my own and will essentially be taking on my own. The budgeting made me nervous at first, but I think I have pulled it off just fine. We shall see.

I will let you know how the trip was soon!

  1. Right there with you! Before we moved to the UK, Juliana and I went to CA and CO on our own...we did fine. Then, just this week, I took the kids to London all by myself (Mike couldn't take off because of the possible furlough...) so.........but we made it just fine and had a fabulous time!
