Choosing Figs | Neurotic as Hell | A Travel, Lifestyle, and Life List Blog

Thoughts and congratulations.

Congratulations Chris and Aimee on your marriage!

The pics from the wedding all look beautiful! I’m happy you had such a wonderful day!

p.s. I still want to know what all y’all were wearing under those kilts 😉


Thoughts on Amsterdam:

1. Would you rather stay in a Bulldog or a Flying Pig?

2. Jeff thinks my priorities in life are screwy since I told him that on my list of worries “getting taken advantage of” comes after “losing my camera”.

3. Remember how in Vienna it is illegal to walk on the grass? Remember how I found out that there are things you can do on the grass there that are probably way more illegal? Well, I doubt I’ll have any such problems in Amsterdam.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
