Every Day is a Holiday

Happy 2017! I can’t believe that the new year is already upon us (a few days in, actually) and I am excited for what the year ahead brings. I took some time away from Amerikitsch to focus on school last year but I am working on my time management skills (a worthy resolution) to make 2017 a year of great things for Amerikitsch– I hope to add vintage signs, shops, restaurants, and other finds that travelers in Southern California can enjoy.

For a Christmas gift I got this fun calendar that includes what different events and holidays are celebrated each day. It’s called “Every Day’s a Holiday” and that’s how I want to think of 2017– to be happy, to be hopeful, and have celebration in mind. Last year was tough for many people, myself included, and I like to think that the new year can be a fresh start to better days. If those better days happen to include days like, “Chocolate Cake Day” or “International Bagpipe Day,” all the better!

I wish you a fantastic new year and I hope that you check back for more vintage inspired and travel posts.

Here are the first few months from my calendar with all the different “holidays” and events. Who knows, you may want to plan a Puzzle Day party?!

Have a wonderful 2017, friends!

Welcome!

Hello and thank you for checking out Amerikitsch! My name is Chelsea and I have been a fan of vintage aesthetics and travel for as long as I can remember– and I have decided to merge the two interests into a blog!

I plan to have posts about different travel destinations I have visited and tips to make your trip as enjoyable as possible. I will also be covering some of my vintage collections and shining a light on older (but still beloved!) spots, predominately throughout the west coast.

Please be sure to check back in the coming weeks– I will be posting entries on my family’s trip to Orlando last year and will have individual entries for the different Disney parks, hotels, as well as some posts on Universal Studios and the surrounding areas– want to take your picture in front of a giant ice cream? I know the spot! Now, isn’t that kitsch?

Thanks again and see you soon!
