I'm fairly certain that the majority of you who are reading this probably have at least a mild case of cabin fever right now. I sure do. Traveling has been such a huge part of my life for so long, and every year between late February and early March, after months of being "trapped" at home, it hits me. In the midst of one of the harshest winters I can remember, mine is at an all time high. I have been dreaming of being able to take Essley outside for more than the time it takes to load her into the car, and being able to actually take her places beyond just the store or grandma's house. I've also been literally counting down the days until she and I head to Arizona next month to visit her grandparents. (I've been very on the fence about taking her on a trip at 2.5 months, but the promise of her experiencing a week of warm weather has swayed me toward doing it. Any advice on taking a baby on an airplane? Yikes!).
Over the weekend, I found myself looking back on photos from some of my recent travels, and thought I'd share some of my favorites. I've posted past travel photo round-ups before, but these shots are all specifically from trips taken in the last year.

I hope that these images help remind my fellow cabin fever sufferers that there is indeed a world outside of winter-induced, house bound type Claustrophobia!
