Best. Gift. Ever.

Last year my hubby declared that instead of gifts for my birthday, he was giving me twelve months of memories. Each month for the past year we disappeared for a getaway, and I loved every second of time spent with him.

This year, when he asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said more time with him, so we planned a week-long road trip.

Best. Gift. Ever.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Thanks for finding me.

Note: I travel light (license, lip balm, and a couple of dollars). Since I rarely carry my phone on our adventures, most of the photos are thanks to my hubby!

If you’re interested in any of the following hashtags, you can follow my hubby on Instagram (@simoncphd) and view more pics from our adventures: #architecture #archilovers #buildings #cloudporn #nature

Where are your favorite places to visit in America? Got any road trip recommendations for us?
