Anything but

We are a family of procrastinators. Well, at least My Guy and I are. But seeing as it’s almost 10pm 11pm and we haven’t even started packing for our trip to Washington, D.C. the next day, I’m going to say there’s no escaping for Little Miss either. This gene is strong.

What I’m really trying to say is, I’m going to have to scale back on the usual awesomeness long-windedness of my posts and settle for something quick. So I leave you with…what I had for dinner tonight.


Yes, it’s a cucumber sandwich. Exciting stuff I know. My rule of no cooking the night before a busy day of traveling meant I had to rummage my kitchen for something quick and easy, and this was the best I could come up with. A meal of cucumbers on buttered sourdough bread fresh from the bakery. With just a smidge of Fleur de Sel, one of my favorite kick-it-up-a-notch ingredients, and voila! Dinner is served.

Basic, uncomplicated, scrumptious. And just what I needed the night before a trip. Something really simple. Because, as you may know, traveling with a toddler is anything but.

Especially Even this toddler.




If you’re a parent, how do you feel about traveling with young children? What is it like for you? If you’re not, what do you first think of when you’re seated near a family with kids on the plane? Do you instinctively look for the emergency exit sign?
