  1. I totally meant to do a recap of mine after 25 days... and then life happened. I'm so enjoying following you on this project though - I'm going to take a wild guess that you're a Seahawks fan huh? ;) I had no idea An Idiot Abroad had made it to your shores!!!

  2. I enjoy following all your updates on IG.

  3. I've been seeing all this on Instagram but it was fun to see it all again in one place. You've had a busy month... and so many happy times! :-)
