Valentine's Day and travel

Hello lovely people. I trust you had a good Valentine's Day. Ours was quite good. We don't full out celebrate but keep it simple. 


Jason gave me this card and wrote a sweet message inside. 


I gave Jason this Love Birds card and wrote a little letter inside. I then left it on his bedside table to find in the morning. I had another card but it came too late in the mail. 


Jason surprised me with this Travel journal. I wasn't expecting any gifts so this was so sweet. 
"I hope this gift is helpful for planning our trip and documenting our travels" - Jason
It was even cuter because he was so excited about the present and couldn't wait to show me the pages inside.


These are the main pages inside the journal. I love it! It's the best size and it gives me space to note down my memories. When I get back from the holiday I will make a journal with photos and other little bits. 

I'm so excited for our overseas adventure. So far the places we have on our itinerary are LA, San Fran, Vegas, Grand Canyon, Dallas, Tulsa, Michigan, Toronto, DC, New York and Orlando. It's going to be 5 packed weeks of travel. If you have any suggestions on places to see, things to do, shops to visit and food to eat, please let me know in the comments :)

Toronto! You'll be in Canada! We could meet up! {ha ha, not really... Toronto is a 5-hour flight away! But still, I'm excited you'll be making a stop here in my country!}

I love your travel journal. And I loved the card you sent me. Happy Valentine's Day, my friend!

OH my goodness, I'm super excited for you! Over a month of traveling thru the US!?! That's more than I've ever done in my entire life and I live here haha. The journal Jason gave you is really sweet and heart warming, and honestly a very thoughtful gift. :D AH, can't wait to hear more about your trip when it happens! Call me up when/if you plan on traveling a bit outside of LA. :D

Adorable cards! I love the journal!!!

In New York you must eat from street vendors. They are notorious for delicousness! It is free to ride the Staten Island Ferry so you can take that out and back for a relaxing, romantic ride.

In Los Angeles, rent a car, get a map to the stars and drive around drooling at the amazing homes. That is so fun!

Rent a car in San Francisco too! My friend and I had a blast driving those crazy streets (and you must drive down Lombard Street).

In Las Vegas check out the Zumanity Cirque du Soleil show. It is sexy and totally fun!!!

I have not been to the other locations on your list but they are on my list of places to visit too!

Happy Friday, Gracie! x

That travel journal is such a wonderful gift! I always keep a journal when we go traveling but I've always used a regular notebook! Maybe I should get myself something like this! And the cards are adorable too!

Oh wow! That sounds like an amazing trip ! I haven't been to any of those places but I want to visit them all! (I've been to Chicago and South Florida). I hoping to go to New York, Washington DC and New England this summer...but we'll see!

Have a lovely weekend!
