A Look Back at 2017 + Big Plans for 2018

Travel 2018


Yes, I know we’re halfway through January already {gasp!} BUT it’s still the newest part of the New Year, right??

I’m gonna ride the New Year’s train a little longer because I really love all the reflection posts and articles that come out right around now– anyone with a blog or website usually takes this time to reflect on lessons learned, places traveled, and to look brightly to the future… Myself included!

It’s no secret that 2017 was a HUGE year for travel for me, as the kiddo and I were halfway through our year-long, world trip. We slow traveled through incredible places in 2017– the stories will come, I promise, but for now, let these pictures represent my words for Italy, Croatia, Bosnia+Herzegovina, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Mexico, LA, Oakland, Nashville, and Austin!

So What Does 2018 Have In Store For Travel? Here’s The Scoop:

February: either Mexico or Costa Rica

March: Road trip somewhere in the U.S.

April: Disney Land

May: TBD

July: Italy + Europe

I love looking through my photos from these trips, lot’s of little memories captured that I’ve forgotten… {and lots of BBQ I’m still dreaming about!}
