Tonight the walls are too confining. My skin itches to feel the balm of a summer night and not the pinpricks of an air conditioned chill. My legs want to stretch out under the dashboard of my car, right foot meeting accelerator, and drive under the moon. Wanderlust seems to creep in right in those seasons when it is the most impossible- escape the most improbable. But I acknowledge it anyway, ticking off in my mind all of the places I want to see.

And to ease the restlessness, I will tell myself that it’s ok to dream. It’s right to experience longing for escape when motherhood can leave us feeling so trapped. So tapped out. And I will grab a travel narrative off of the shelf, open the windows, and pray that until my mind lets go and surrenders to sleep that my babies will dream their dreams. Because I need to dream mine too.

  1. My wife and i felt lucky Emmanuel could do his investigations through your precious recommendations he obtained out of your blog. It is now and again perplexing to simply choose to be handing out hints that many the rest may have been selling. Therefore we do understand we’ve got you to appreciate for this. The specific illustrations you’ve made, the straightforward website menu, the relationships you make it easier to promote – it’s everything superb, and it’s really aiding our son and the family believe that the subject is exciting, which is wonderfully pressing. Thank you for all!

  6. MinistrY:A Moshki se le ocurrio hacer fisca con su primer veterinario, entonces em asustó, pero ahorita me da risa acordarme del Dr y su ayudante con cara de espantados, agarrando a Moshki con mucho cuidado mientras este bufaba como loco… Nada que ver con el lindo gatito que revisa la doctora.

  8. vix, you are ALWAYS the right woman for a vintage jumpsuit. I'm a huge fan of wool, but mine errs more on the side of cosy, you manage to make it glam.If you can't go to Goa, bring Goa to the Black Country. Have a party with an Indian theme and turn the heating right up!Have a fantastic weekend,Lucy x

  11. Please do let us know when you come across such quiet places. I have never been to Kabini but a friend and her son were horrified that a bunch of fellow Americans were being the loud and obnoxious tourists that she passed off as French 🙂 I laughed my head off. I have never understood this over-eating just because they have paid for it concept. Phew.My3

  12. It’s a shame you don’t hаνe a donate button! I’d cеrrtainly donate to this

    your ᏒSS feed to my Google account. I look forwаrd to fresh updates and will talk ɑbout

  13. Having read this I thought it was really informative. I appreciate you spending some time
    and effort to put this information together. I once
    again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments.

    But so what, it was still worth it!

  14. Thank you Kathy. The only photos posted on my blog from Italy are 402, 405, 406, and 407. You’ll find them in the summer section. I of course took hundreds of photos during our trip to Italy but didn’t post them. Maybe I should do that and add an Italy section, it is a beautiful country!

  15. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if
    you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything
    you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

  16. Hi there! I’m at work surfing around your blog from
    my new iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through
    your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the excellent work!

  17. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
