It has been a busy week around the Jetsetter’s Homestead. Almost crazy busy.
It’s time to start the weekly recap again – the omnibus post where you’ll not only catch what you’ve missed in our posts but also the little travel/life pieces of our lives. Not only are we back in the swing of things here on the site, but things have also been in motion in real life.
When I say in motion, for me personally that has meant a busy travel week. I’m in the middle of one of those weeks – seven days, six states, five flights, four hotels, three purposes, two pairs of shoes, and a partridge in a pear tree. I lied about that last part… maybe. But it’s no exaggeration to say that it has been a swirl.
So last Sunday, I introduced you guys to Jim. He’s pretty awesome and definitely made my life easier this week (from driving me to the airport on Monday morning when I couldn’t get an Uber quickly to shipping me my sorority badge when I forgot to pack it) – and all while juggling his own busy life.
Jim talked about being home on Monday – a great introduction to the magic he has with words. *swoon* I’m a bit jealous because he is working on a remote project at the moment which meant getting to work from home all week while I’m off running around the US.
During one of my flights, I managed to fall down the internet rabbit hole and somehow stumbled across Paris syndrome. I’m utterly fascinated by this concept.
Meanwhile Jim talked about travel flexibility, something I thankfully have not had to worry about this week. “Tranquilo” is something I definitely need to make my mantra. (I’ve had days in the past where I could have used that. Many days. So many days.)
I’m personally looking forward to coming home on Sunday. And not just because I have a growing pile of boxes waiting for me from the online shopping I’m prone to doing in my hotel room.
I miss the homestead and I miss my own bed. Only one more night before I’m home!
I’ll leave you with a couple of my favorite Instagram moments this week as I was jumping between locations:
