Leaving on a Midnight [Plane] to [Germany]

Going to Germany || Jade and Fern

Is it just me or does this picture make my legs look weird?

This title is slightly misleading since my plane won’t be leaving AT midnight, but it’s true—in just a little over a week I’m going to Germany! For a whole month! Somebody pinch me!

It’s been 7 years since I’ve seen my family and friends in Germany, so as you might imagine, I am beyond excited.

I know I haven’t been super on top of blogging so far this year—what with being semi-blind for two weeks, the domain name fiasco, and prepping to leave my life for 4 weeks, there’s been some lapses.

But even though I’ll be away, I am not abandoning you! I have a few posts lined up for the month of April, including a very special guest blogger. And I should be able to do at least one post while traveling, more depending on how many of my relatives have finally installed internet in their homes.

Plus, you can follow me on Instagram to keep up with my tripI’ll be hijacking #travelinthemaking. Deal, one person who’s used it so far.

When I get back…DIY madness. MADNESS, I tell you. Be prepared. After I recover from jet lag and the 20 lbs. I’ll inevitably gain from pretzel-eating.

And in case the title put you in the mood for some Motown:
