Charming Charleston

I got to go on the most amazing Girl's Trip. These ladies were my dearest friends when we lived in London and the friendships have been so perfectly made that we needed to see each other as often as possible, even after most of us had moved back to America. That's hard to do when we've got to travel from all over the country to be together but we made it happen! Because of the nature of this trip, our number one goal was to give ourselves time to chat, chat, chat. We also determined to do a few other things with only a few days in the South together: to see a plantation, admire the colorful houses, and eat good Southern food. We visited the Magnolia Plantation, the oldest public gardens in America. There's nothing more I can say than share these pictures that still don't do its beauty justice. Our walks and wandering chats were good for the soul. It didn't hurt that the sights were absolutely lovely!

Traveling with Baby plus Jet Lag suggestions!

Travel is something I can't put a price on. The experience alone is worth the trouble. Money will come and go, time spent having new experiences, getting to know a new city and quality time with loved ones won't wait around! It’s not the most original advice but I thought I would jot down a few of the things I have discovered that is helpful when flying (especially the first time) with small babies! Our first international flight (15hrs, 2 legs) was when Charlie was 3 months old. We had only just gotten her passport and visa processed so it was the first time we could have taken her out of the country. We have since flown to Hong Kong, Hawaii and shorter flights with all the same habits, some tweaked as Charlie gets bigger, mobile and more curious. However, flight attendants and other passengers are MUCH nicer to me when I travel alone. We have not encountered full-on mean people but no one offers to help when Taylor is next to me.
