A few years ago, I unearthed a travel journal from a month-long trip to Europe that I took in 2006. As I reviewed its pages, I was struck by just how many details of the trip I had completely forgotten. And if the memories of a once-in-a lifetime trip that was so impactful to me could fade away – how much of my day-to-day life is lost? Sensations, emotions, achievements, losses, experiences from the mundane to the exceptional, all transforming from that specific moment in time to become that day, that week, that year, that life…

As I get older and gain a better understanding of how fragile, how brief, and how precious life really is, it's become even more important to me to me experience it to its fullest and to try to retain all of those little moments that might otherwise get lost. It's with this idea that I started the process of recording these moments – a travel journal, of sorts.

A travel journal for life.

It hit 95 degrees and 50% humidity in Pittsburgh today. 

Once I arrived at my cool little house, I was quite reluctant to go back out in the heat again...  As soon as Mike got home, I could tell he felt the same.  We both collapsed on the comfy bed and promptly decided to forego the gym and errands, order in steak sammiches, and spend the evening watching movies in our cool little haven.

Orange Kitty made her approval of our decision known by choosing this as her resting spot.
