'merica, the grand adventure.


when i got this glorious throwback to the 80s and 90s American flag shirt i was so stoked. 
for some reason it just felt like the epitome of summer shirt--and being that i live in arizona and generally dread the very thought of those summer months, it was weird that that got me so excited. 

i guess it's got something to do with the fact that we have some really big adventures planned for this summer. i think it's good for the soul to have things to look forward to. i know it's definitely doing me good, as we inch nearer and nearer to the real thing. 
it's like a light inside of me is burning brighter and slightly more frantic and that's exciting.

  as i think about it, this shirt is actually slightly ironic considering the big adventure takes place outside of the United States of America--or maybe that's what makes this shirt exactly perfect.
I hope you have something (big or small) to look forward to and i'd love to hear what it is, if you'd care to share.
have a great day.

I am going back to Spain starting tomorrow and getting home almost 30 hours later! I can't wait to be with the guy and the family! Plus, the next big adventure is finding a place and a job in France together. It will be the best of adventures starting this very summer :) xo

LOVE that top!
Husband and I are taking a trip in May/June to Hungary. We'll drive up to Austria to visit Vienna, travel all around the countryside of Hungary, and of course spend some time in Budapest.

Long live adventure!
