    I loved your guest post! :)
    A rainy day in an old house with an older book and some tea, and then hanging out in Paris!? That sounds like the perfect day!

    Beautiful and inspiring list. I’ve often longed for a chance to live abroad, but the stars would truly have to align for it to happen. That said, we did save up and splurge on a two-week trip to Italy this summer. Yes, WITH our two-year-old and four-year-old! We went with my sister and her husband and son, rented a house in Tuscany, ate pizza and pasta and gelato, and soaked in all that is Italian. My kids may be too young to really remember it when they get older, but it definitely made an impression on my older one. He knows who Michelangelo is, what a duomo looks like, what real Italian gelato tastes like, what Italian sounds like, how long a plane ride it is to get there, and he remembers a lot of the statues and buildings and bridges. TOTALLY worth doing. We won’t be able to afford anything like that for a while, but we will do it again. I think travel opens up their minds and broadens their perspectives in a way books can’t accomplish on their own. Wow I’ve gone off on a rant haven’t I? ;-) Sorry about that. Loved your wishes!

    Thank you, Mary. That is so awesome. I’m so impressed that you took that long trip with such little ones. That inspires me so much! And I couldn’t agree more about travel broadening little perspectives. I feel so thankful that I’ve been able to travel overseas as a young adult but I’ve often wondered what my views and perspectives would have been had I gone at a younger age and with my family. I want that for my kids. Thanks for the sweet comment. I hope your next trip comes sooner than later! xo
