Well, sorry for the radio silence around these parts. If you were picturing a sleep deprived new Mom struggling to string more than a few words together let alone a blogpost, you were partially right. But lately, there's been a little more sleep (yay) and a lot of just regular life around here. We've been finding our groove, settling into a schedule and when I'm not chasing Jasper around, I'm putting my feet up and enjoying some mindless entertainment (read: TV.)
This week we're preparing for travel! Jasper is about to make his third trip to the motherland. I'm so excited for our family to see him - he has changed so much since we were home in March and he's so fun now! That being said, I'm a little nervous about the long flight. While Jasper is no rookie (he's taken something like 17 flights,) he is now so much more active and we all know there's not a lot of room to spare in economy seats. Along with his increased mobility, he's also much more aware of the world which is usually pretty fun but a bit of a nightmare when he needs to sleep anywhere other than a dark room. If there's something going on around him, he wants in on it. Keep us and our fellow passengers in your thoughts on Friday.
We are spending a week in a holiday home, complete with a pool, in British Columbia's Okanagan. Temperatures are supposed to be in the mid-thirties, we'll be surrounded by wineries, orchards, a lake, and my immediate family. It couldn't be more perfect. Afterwards, the three of us will spend a weekend on the outskirts of Vancouver with Joe's family before flying North to Joe's hometown for the remaining week.
We've just started thinking about our final big trip of the year which we're hoping to plan around Jasper's first birthday at the beginning of October. The South of France is in the lead (we're undecided between inland Provence or Côte d'Azur.) But, there are so many places that have popped up from Iceland to Malta. I'm more keen to find some sunshine before the long, dark, Norwegian winter sets in. We'll have about 6 days - any suggestions or thoughts?
Tell me, what are you looking forward to this summer?
