Ahhh… finally the weekend has arrived! I still haven’t quite finished unpacking, and for me that is complete torture! I love traveling, but there is nothing like the feeling you get when you walk in your front door. Particularly after an hour-long flight that felt like a month-long flight because of a squirmy, over-tired toddler in my lap.
We got in late at night, and with work the next day, I was feeling pretty frazzled all around. I forced myself to take some time out for ‘me’ and go to my hot yoga class, and I felt completely rejuvenated. In any other workout, my mind is still racing with all of the things on my to-do list, but with yoga, I’m so distracted with the difficult poses that I completely lose myself in it.
Below are some pictures from our visit to Niagara Falls. We took a couple of extra days to relax after the wedding, much of it uneventful, but I really enjoyed the simplicity and quiet that we rarely experience in our normal day-to-day lives. Even just laying in bed watching Jersey Shore and then eating pizza delivered to our room was a fun change for us.
I loved my cozy blazer and flats combo, and I am definitely going to wear it a LOT this fall. I didn’t wear jewelry because we were hopping on a flight back to Chicago that same day, and I like to make my airport security checks as seamless as possible. It took years, but I’ve learned the secret to traveling light – wear flats, no jewelry, no belt, and keep your license and boarding pass in your pocket. Even better if you wear a long dress or maxi skirt. It makes life so much easier.
Have a great weekend!
