Must have of the day

A Passport!!!!

Lily’s passport arrived today.

She can finally go visit her family who so anxiously awaits to meet her in Portugal in September. (now all we need are tickets)

Go Lily, Go!

And on that note, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE! I will be meeting up with one of my best friends who I have not seen in more than 3 years.

A few of my favorite things

Thinking about vacation (August in West Virginia and September in Portugal) always gets me excited.

As excited as I get about being away and being somewhere totally different, I also get homesick.

You see, as much as I like to travel, I also really love being home surrounded by my favorite things.

So, this got me thinking: what are my favorite things?

There are quite a few.

Adapting

Since we slept at uncle Darren’s house last night and will again for the next 2 nights, I thought about how adaptable of a baby Lily is.

She is not even 3 months old and spent almost half of her life at her grandparents in West Virginia, has stayed at 2 hotels for 3 nights, went to Morgantown and slept over at her cousin Adelaide’s house for 2 nights, and now here we are at uncle Darren’s house for 3 nights.

For the most part she just chills during the day and at night sleeps relatively well.

I do however make sure that I always have a few of her toys and definitely her blankets. This way, she won’t feel like she is in a completely strange place.

Adaptability is something I think everyone should have. If you adapt well, most likely you make a good traveler. And traveling, I feel, is the best thing for someone’s growth and we LOVE to travel!
