This will be the first year of MANY that hubby and I will not be taking a vacation.  Well, aside from one weekend in Palm Springs next month.  This is a very sad story. We love to travel and it's looking like our days of wanderlust may be on the back burner for now.  Once we own a home it will sure be a lot harder to save the way we did before. For now I've got pinterest to pin all the places I would like to see as opposed to actually going. I stumbled upon this hotel called Babylonstoren in South Africa and fell in love.

Travel with me on pinterest to see more pictures like these:


  1. I love travelling too, so I feel your pain. I was really worried when we first bought our home too, but we still manage to get away, just not as often.

  3. what a great find! I wish I were going that way anytime soon. I know the travelling gets complicated....first the house, then the kids....but you always have to find small getaways. BTW is that your wedding photo? I love your headpiece...where is it from? you should do a post on that!

    1. I actually used to have an etsy store that sold headpieces, this was just one of them and the photo I used to list it. It's a little old so I am waiting until we move into our house to take new pics :)

  4. These pictures are lovely, everything looks amazing; I so want to go on a vacation after seeing these pictures and that hotel really looks impressive! You have a lovely blog and I'm a new follower! Hope you'll like my blog and follow back!
