Edisto Island, July 2015

I just love looking back and providing my mid month review. No idea how you all feel about it though. It's kind of fun seeing where I am at and where I've come from looking back month-by-month. Here's where I am and what I am up to this month–

Listening to: TribeTyler.

I first found out about his youtube when he posted his proposal video and it went viral. It was beautiful and very well done – everything I would want in a youtube video and truly an inspiration to me. (If he can create magic with a camera, then maybe one day I will be able to too…) Ever since I saw that video, I've been following his vlog daily as he documents his 20s.

Remembering: and watching video throwbacks recently posted online (on facebook of course!) of my trip to NYC in March 2001. It's crazy seeing how young everyone looks … and the twin towers that fell on 9/11! Insane! Plus, it's kind of fun hearing the tour again. There's a lot I remember, but there is also a lot that I have forgotten.

Planning: Recently, I've been using Native, an app I downloaded on my phone that is free for 2 months using coupon code pizzainmotion if you sign up before August 31st. Native helps with travel planning as you are instant-messaging with a travel planner/concierge. So far, Paul has helped me find a hotel for NYC and Boston, looked into cheap travel for me between the two cities, and helped me research breakfast restaurants at the Hartsfield airport that are open before 6am. While I could definitely do all of this on my own, it's been so nice having the advice of a travel agent. The price tag (without the 2 free months) is a bit expensive, but for what you are getting, it's a very good service and one I would definitely consider using in the future.

On a side note, we are also (still) looking into travel to Europe. Right now we're considering flying to NYC and taking Norwegian (with their super cheap $300 flights) to Copenhagen right after Christmas to celebrate the new year in Europe and stay for ~2 weeks. Of course I'm incredibly indecisive and perhaps I'd rather go next year in July closer to my birthday? *shrugs* The point is: we're going. Someday. If I ever make a decision.

Anxiously Awaiting: I'm sooo looking forward to seeing an amazing view of NYC and I'm ready to see my travel planning put into action.

Interested to Know: what life will be like when my nephew is born. The time is coming!

Keeping A Secret: This blog post was written a week in advance (the 13th) since I knew this week (17-21) was going to be crazy busy for me with packing and getting last minute travel things figured out! Eek!

DIY'ing: nothing at the moment. Can't a girl have a break? ;-)

Reading: Captive by Ashley Smith. It's the true story of a woman whose life was changed after she was held hostage when a criminal broke out of jail, shot a judge, FBI agent, and court secretary in the early 2000s.
