Although I’m spending these last weeks of summer sitting around waiting for this baby to come, I know a lot of people are squeezing in last minute trips before the summer ends. Here are some must have’s for those weekend getaways.
The summer brings lots of travel in our family. In the first few years of our marriage, my husband traveled for the majority of his job, and in the summer I would join him.

But for now, I’m gushing over these travel guides by Herb Lester. They are so beautifully designed with amazing detail. They would make such a special wedding present if you know where the couple is honeymooning, and a sweet keepsake framed in their first home together.
