I amsterdam

Hello! Hi! How are you guys??! I guess it's about time I dust off the cobwebs around this site of mine. So many apologies for my prolonged absence, I promise you it was not intended. So much has happened over the past few months, some amazing and some very sad. Truthfully, I feel that I'm still processing most of it so I'm not quite ready to talk about it just yet. Instead, I wanted to kick off the Little Lady blog with some of my fun excursions as of late. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I've been traveling across Europe for the past few weeks visiting family and traveling with the in-laws. Amsterdam, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, and France. Each one so beautiful and special in it's own way. First stop, Amsterdam!!!
*Disclaimer: Unfortunately my camera was packed away during this trip (I know, what was I thinking), so all of these pictures come to you via my iPhone.*

I wish I could have spent more time here because it still remains my favorite destination in Europe! A few years ago, Eric and I were actually offered an opportunity to live here for six months but we chose Florida instead because it had a better fit for Eric's specific work. Right now I just keep kicking myself because this place was perfect! The people were friendly, the weather was incredible (we got lucky) and the canals were so quaint. I wish we had a little more time here so we could have done the big tourist attractions like the Van Gogh Museum and tour the Anne Frank house, but alas the lines were WAY too long. Instead we just had fun getting lost in the city, and even ended our trip walking through the Red Light District. Needless to say my SIL, Allison, and I were completely entertained watching my mother-in-law squirm through it all. Sorry Carolyn!! ;)
