It's the same story every year: the New Year approaches and we all promise ourselves we're going to kill it the following year. We're going to be more organized. Work hard. Be healthy. It'll be "our year." Like everyone else, I have a lot of exciting plans lined up that I really hope come to fruition in 2018. They've been on the back burner for some time, as I balanced 3 young kids and a busy travel schedule. I'm really excited, though, to begin putting myself out there more frequently here and on my sister blog If I Went There. If I Went There began in 2010, but I quickly became buried in all things parenting. Different creative passions took over my life since 2010, but my true love is and has always been travel. The best thing about travel is that I can incorporate my other loves: family, photography, writing, reading, languages, and food.
I hope you have some fun goals set for yourself this year. There is little more satisfying than achieving our goals, no matter how big or how small. Plan a trip to a new place (I can help with that!), take on a new hobby, or join a book club! Whatever your goals may be, I join our youngest in wishing you a very happy and prosperous 2018!
