Spring Travel Ideas – The April Take Me Away Recap

Happy May everyone!  Here in New Jersey, the weather has been all over the place this spring.  Hopefully, now that May has arrived, the warm and sunny days will follow along!  Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate, at least I can be inspired by all the spring travel ideas!

Recently, I shared my trip to the Tulip Festival.  Besides that and a girls’ day in New York for a Broadway show, I haven’t done any traveling recently.  I will just have to live vicariously through all of you!

Spring travel ideas:

Last month, we had a great turnout at our April Take Me Away Travel Link Party.  Let’s take a look at the highlights…
