Happy Sunday! I’m currently writing this post from a cafe in Crete. I don’t think I’ve ever written a blog post in a more gorgeous place. Julian and I packed our bags, said goodbye to the kids and left on Friday night. Leaving the kids was tough. I was close to either cancelling the trip altogether or booking two last minute tickets for them to join us. But we ultimately decided to go for it. We felt like we needed some time together and thought it would be good for them to have quality time with their grandparents (thank you, Grandparents!).
Although we had planned the trip a few months ago, it’s surreal to finally be here. Have you been to Crete? Comment below with any recommendations you may have. I’ll be posting photos and videos from our trip on Instagram. In the meantime, enjoy this week’s Sunday Edit links!
The Sunday Edit
I used this backpack for my carry-on our trip to Crete. I love that it has a zipper so I don’t need to keep checking to make sure nothing fell out. The two straps, felt easier on my back. I may never go back to a single strap bag when traveling.
