First and foremost, I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with those that are affected by the recent earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan and other areas. I can't fathom that kind of trauma and destruction that so many people are living through right now. I hope you'll consider making a donation to your favorite relief charity.
We are busy over here planning our summer vacation, our first one in five years that doesn't coincide with a family wedding. We just purchased our airfare for a tour of Iceland, England, Wales, Scotland and possibly France (if I can convince my MIL to cross the English Channel.) My sister S will meet up with us in London for a few days so we can visit our aunt and cousins, then we will part ways as she heads to Spain. We'll hit up the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which we've been saying we were going to do every year for the last, oh, 9 years? Well, this is finally the year! As I've mentioned in the past, most of our trips center around motorsports events, and this is a huge one.
We will end up in New York City and Washington D.C. visiting my family, and then back home sweet home. Whew! Now, to figure out how to save up for it all.... I've never been to Iceland before, I can't wait to see it. I'd love your best travel tips. What are your favorite sights?
Miss Ella is probably going to flip out when she sees today's lunch. She loves mac n' cheese, and she loves the zoo animals pasta. Combine, and voila! Happy child.
