Map It

I hope you had an amazing and restful weekend! I sure did. My mom & sister came up to visit, and it was so nice to have some company (and pampering!) after a week of being so sick. We ate, window shopped, ate some more, and did some more window shopping. And today, for the first time in a week, I ventured outside for my first walk without my lungs collapsing. Success!

If you've read my blog for any length of time, you know that I enjoy- no, love- traveling. Anywhere and everywhere. 2011 is a big year of travel for me; I already have one trip to San Diego booked for the fall, and I will be booking a trip to Denver this Spring.

And of course, the big momma- a trip to Germany in the fall! (Remember my resolution to travel more? I think we can go ahead and give that a big check mark!)

With a love of travel comes a love of maps. In fact, I'm obsessed with maps. And I've decided that my "inspiration wall" I've been struggling to find inspiration for will in fact now be one, giant map.

I love this map from World Market- I just wish it was a bit bigger! I love the colors and that it's magnetic chalkboard.

We walked through Restoration Hardware this weekend, and I immediately fell in love with this giant, roll-up chalkboard wall map. It might actually be too big! (And a bit out of my current budget!) Still... love it.

This DIY Cork Board Map can be found over at Design*Sponge. Precious.

And I love this cork board map from World Maps.

I can officially say the travel bug has bit me... and I need a map to track my upcoming journeys and my "wish list" cities, too!

Any map inspiration out there to share?
