As soon as I return home from a really awesome trip, I immediately must start planning another one.
Remember when I went to Greece? I came back and instantly started mapping out my visit to London.
Or how about my epic trip to South Africa? I went to Tulum just a few months later. France planning bled right into planning for Singapore and Thailand, and once I returned home from that vacay (and recovered from my bacterial infection), I frantically felt the need to go somewhere cool for New Year's Eve just a few short weeks later.
I considered somewhere warm like Miami, or a ski weekend in Vermont, but thankfully my travel partner in crime (Dana) texted me with the same urge and said "Let's go to Montreal!" Done and done.

And for once, it's not food related.
I know I'm about 5 years behind on this, but I finally started watching Game of Thrones. And I now understand what all the fuss is about.
I've been meaning to start for about a year now, and finally decided that winter of 2017 was the right time. (Winter is coming... heh.)
Problem is, it's consuming my life. I watched 17 episodes my first weekend. I'm now through the first three seasons (so 30 episodes in all) with 30 to go.
The rest of my life is somewhat suffering because of it, specifically the blog. So I'm implementing a self-imposed "pause" from my GOT binge to get caught up on a couple blog items... starting with this very season-appropriate comfort food dish: grilled cheese and tomato soup. (Ironically, I actually made this during the first weekend of binge watching, so I did manage to tear myself away from the show for a couple hours then. A girl's got to eat, you know?)
