The plans are made.
The housemate has a number for the vets and a chicken budget for spoiling the fur-children (yes, I know they aren't real children. But man, I love 'em). I've double checked everything is switched off and safe in our rooms.
The out of office is on the email and the car will be here in a couple of hours.
I. AM. SO. EXCITED.
Excited to visit New York for the very first time - a place I've seen and heard so much about. I've listened to songs about it, seen it in movies and TV shows, read about it in dozens of books. I can't wait to be a proper tourist and check so many things off the list - the Empire State building, the High Line, Central Park, pizza by the slice....
I can't wait to explore Boston and Cambridge in our super quick two days there. Such an amazing place, I'm glad we managed to wedge in a quick visit amongst the other excitements!
Toronto is such a favourite and I cannot wait to return! I'm looking forward to quality time with my girl Christy, catching up with our friends Szymon and Caroline, and exploring bits of the city I haven't seen before.
And then? Vegas. Cocktails and blackjack and shopping and spa times, oh my!
I'm taking my laptop and may well do a quick hello blog while I'm there, but the big posts will come afterwards - I have two new memory cards and I am not afraid to use them! I'll also be sharing lots of fun on my Instagram over at @cmclaire as well as plenty of silliness over on Snapchat, where I'm @cmclaire12.
Have a great couple of weeks - it's time to holiday here!
