Currently | 12.17.15

Watching | Not much.
> I am going to begin to sound like a broken record, but I have been focused on our move and getting the RV prepped for our January departure.

Reading | It’s a secret.
> I am currently reading a book by a blogger/conference and event planner/business consultant and will be sharing more soon.
> AND, my good friend Lois gave me a book (Queen of the Road: The True Tale of 47 States, 22,000 Miles, 200 Shoes, 2 Cats, 1 Poodle, a Husband, and a Bus with a Will of Its Own) that I am going to read over our Christmas cruise. Still making my way through James A. Michener’s Alaska.

Working On | A blog design update.
> I am working with my developer to get Misadventures with Andi prepped for Project Escape in 2016.

Feeling | Grateful.
> I was glad to say good-bye (for now) to my #ExperienceBuick buddies. I had an amazing year with them.

And I am thankful that I was able to spend a week in Paris, especially the week right after the November 13th attacks. It was a very different visit like we had the city practically all to myself. I wasn’t able to see my good friends Lindsey, Kasia and Daisy, but that means more for us to talk about on my next visit! Paris is and will always be the city of light.

Morning-in-Paris
Leaving Paris our last morning.

Planning | Our Southwest roadtrip.
> The potential El Niño is forcing us to change our plans for where we will be heading in January and February.

Loving | Minimalism.
> I have like 10 things to wear and that is something I am really enjoying. Maybe after month six, I’ll be totally bored with my wardrobe, but for now, I am loving not having the “what I am I going to wear to the office today” routine.

My Favorite Photo | Cargo loading.
> We are prepping and optimizing all of our cargo space in and under the RV. Good food has huge importance in our life so we are bringing lots of our favorites to ensure we eat well. For us, that means an entire container dedicated to things like French sardines, foie gras, and duck rillette. Or another with French mustard and various other condiments like udon and ponzu sauce. It’s just how we roll.

I also made use of the cute laundry bag that I got at last year’s  WITs (Women in Travel Summit), I swear that was the BEST swag bag ever! (By the way, I was selected as a speaker for the Women in Travel Summit taking place in March in Irvine, California! Come out and see me!)

    Moving seems to overtake every part of your life when you are getting ready for it! Sounds like you had an amazing trip to Paris, I would love to go there and visit the city. That’s a lot of french food, you look ready to go on the trip.

    Loving this Currently post! I am currently on a cruise ship and going back to Los Angeles after having some fun days in Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. I must say, I wish I could stay longer in Vallarta. So much more to explore, and I didn’t get the chance to visit their jungle yet. Speaking of travel, I’d love to attend WITs, as it will be close to Los Angeles. Maybe I will see you next year. 😉

    Planning an RV trip definitely takes some time. We traveled from Alaska to New York state, Maryland, and then back with a stop in Ohio. It was a month of time for the trip, but weeks of preparation ahead of time. One of the things I have really enjoyed when living out of our RV for several weeks is how we can get by with a minimum amount of stuff and not feel deprived.

    Our good friends (Justin was a groomsman at their recent wedding in Albany) were in Paris for their honeymoon during the attacks. As awful as it was, I’m so proud of the way France is responding with strength and love! And yes, last year’s WITS swag bags are going to be tough to beat — but we might be well on our way. 😉 (Now *I* sound like a broken record, but I can’t wait to read more about your trip! Especially about how you’re packing that RV — I can tell if Justin and I ever do it, food will be a biggie for us, too. I love that you’re staying so true to yourselves on this adventure!)

    It looks like things are going well. Can’t wait to see your design! And how surreal it must have been to be in Paris the week after. I can’t imagine!

    So glad to hear that your Paris trip did not involve the attacks there. I wish I was currently reading something so that I could look forward to finishing a complete book. I am currently planning on a trip to Michigan for the holidays…really…more like preparing for it..

    I totally feel like the El Nino changes have made holiday travel easier – but that’s coming from a Canadian! 🙂
    One of my favourite summer cities is Montreal, and I would never dream of going there in the winter – I am not a fan of the cold – but I’m tempted to book something last minute and go eat my way through the city 🙂

    OH my gosh, I bet Paris was amazing even if it was like a ghost town! I haven’t been in forever and I can’t wait to go back! I’m also getting ready for a A blog design update in 2016 and I’m super nervous haha.
