wanderlust friday!

wanderlust (wan•der•lust)n. a great desire to travel and rove about.

i’m so excited to report that i received my passport yesterday! (i was given a diplomat/government passport to travel on military orders, but unbeknown to us, am unable to travel as a tourist with it – doh!) honestly, the wait for my new passport with my new name has seemed.so.long.

but that’s all in the past now & europe has officially been opened up to us both! this week marks the first few days of my third trimester, so flight is a bit tricky, as in, i can’t do it without the doctors go-ahead which is a huge pain in the arse. lucky for us, europe has an amazing train system.

at the end of the month, captain & I are headed to Garmisch-Partenkirchen for several days. It’s about 5 hours south of us in Bavaria, and by all appearances, seems completely magical.

it is widely believed that the inspiration for sleeping beauty’s castle is here.

yes it’s a hike. yes, i’ll be 30 weeks pregnant. no, there is no way i would miss it!

aside from garmisch & in addition to thanksgiving, we have a 4-day weekend in November and we’re stoked to sit down this weekend & plan a mini holiday. we’ve been leaning towards Prague & France (maybe the Alsace region to start) but are happily taking suggestions on potential destinations!

if you could go anywhere this weekend, where would it be?

it’s friday!

… and a good one to boot!

one of the fondest memories i have of growing up was buying an annual easter outfit with my dad. off we would go in search of the frilliest dress we could find. the more tulle, lace
& bows, the better; frou frou dresses my mama called them. a nod to tradition, here are some grown up frou frou dresses that are beyond decadent & deliciously frothy.
