Vacation starts today! We’re trekking to Missouri and this will be our gorgeous view for the next week. Hoping to return refreshed and recharged.

The 2014 National Geographic Photo Contest submissions are due on the 30th, and there are already some incredible entries.

I’ve cut back on coffee significantly and drink more tea. But now that summer’s here, I need my iced coffee. Rather than shell out more dinero to my friends at Starbucks, I’ve decided that I’m going to give the Pioneer Woman’s recipe a whirl when we return from vaca.

Nora is an okay car traveler, but gets restless. Well, used to get restless. We recently bought this iPad holder which was a real game-changer for our road trips. KP just downloaded some baby-friendly videos from the app store and she’s all set. And even though the pics show it on the back of the front seat, we managed to attach it to the front of the backseat (since she’s still rear-facing).

Love this sweet piece on marriage.

All for this week! Enjoy your weekend.
