This year, I've tried to hunker down in preparation for some big life changes to come. It has meant that my summer travel plans were kept to a minimum. Although I find myself itching to lay on a beach somewhere warm, it doesn't make sense in terms of the lost writing time or my finances. After San Diego in April and New York in May, Chris and I have not ventured far outside of the greater Pittsburgh area. We will be going to New Orleans in September for a conference, but otherwise no big trips are on the horizon. I will be presenting at my field's major conference in November, but I have to do so remotely, as I will be too pregnant to fly by then.
To combat our wanderlust, we've taken a few fun, interesting day trips that don't require the same level of commitment as more elaborate vacations. And last weekend we went to the lake to spend some time outside.
Although it was pretty chilly, Speck loved it!
We brought some picnic friendly foods and had lunch outside.
