So much to look forward to

I've got a case of the travel bug. 

Mr. Ruby and I haven't gone on "vacation" since our honeymoon...three years ago. Luckily, in order to satisfy my travel appetite - we've got so much planned in the upcoming months. It makes me SO happy to have so much to look forward to. 

In honor of Independence Day...we will be celebrating in the most appropriate place you can possibly imagine - Washington DC. This should be one awesome Fourth of July!

Can't wait to celebrate in our nation's capital

A few weeks later, I will be carrying on a tradition of visiting my very best friend in one of my absolute FAVORITE cities - Chicago! 

My very first trip to Chi - my bestie showing me around town

Last year's trip to Chi - LOVE THIS PIC!

Then, Mr. Ruby and I are celebrating our anniversary ( a couple months late) going White Water Rafting and ATVing in the Mountains of Bingham, Maine and then off to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor Maine for some relaxation and LOBSTER!

Quaint little town of Bar Harbor

Our kind of vacation!

This is the hotel we're staying at - Wowszerz!

And finally, we're planning a CRUISE with some of our pals. Neither Mr. Ruby nor I have ever been on a cruise, and we think it would be such a blast to go with some fun friends!!!

Hopefully somewhere in the Southern Caribbean
