I wanted to share a few of my favourite photos snapped along the way and my new wardrobe staple: Freddies of Pinewood Classic 1950s jeans. I never wear jeans but knew that I needed something a bit more casual than my normal wardrobe staples for the trip. These jeans are fantastic! They are high-waisted with one side button and a hidden zipper in the side pocket. Plus, they go great with me-made 40's blouses. I can't believe how much I've worn them on this trip.
So here are my favourite photos from my recent travels. I only wish I was able to meet-up with my sewing buddies along the way but I know I'll be back in the not so distant future so let me know if you live in any of these locales!
First up was Chicago. Our hosts showed me and my colleagues around Millennium Park and we even got to go on a boat. We were blessed with absolutely beautiful weather. It was amazing!

Big Sur, CA
Next stop was California for a conference in San Francisco. I am bummed I didn't get to meet up with any sewing buddies in CA but know I will probably be back there again before too long! One thing my colleagues and I did do was take a short break before the conference to explore the Big Sur area. Absolutely stunning!
Point Lobos State Natural Reserve
The plants and wildlife in the State Reserve were beautiful.
I literally wore these jeans everyday! Here they are in the Point Lobos State Natural Reserve :)
Happy Feet Part 2: Garrapata State Park
Red Rock Canyon, NV:
This last weekend, my sister and I went to Las Vegas for a quick trip and spent some time in Red Rock Canyon! Loved it!

It's been really nice to spend some time outdoors in beautiful locations and to have a bit of time off to spend with my family. I usually don't like flying at this time of the year but so far, I've managed to stay ahead of the extreme weather (knock on wood)!
What about you? Any big travel plans for the holidays?
