so in october matt and i went to spain. by ourselves. we dubbed it an anniversary trip. i think we've officially stopped celebrating our anniversary on our actual anniversary. fate can smell it coming, and over the last few years april 23rd has usually been crashed by business trips, pediatric ER visits and miscarriages. you know, super fun adult stuff. so this trip was planned about as last minute as we can cut it these days, and i'm happy to report that the guerrilla warfare style ambush vacation actually worked, a million thanks to willing(ish) grandparents. great success!
traveler's tip: i'm not sure i'd go back to spain whilst gestating; it's a culinary minefield for the expectant. cured meats, unpasteurized cheeses, raw fish... my heart said yes but my fetus and my hypochondriacal tendencies said lay off, sister.
