Happy New Year! I cannot quite wrap my head around the fact that 2014 is officially here already, but as is often the case with beginnings and fresh starts, I’m looking forward to all of the adventures that 2014 brings… especially the ones that aren’t even on our radar yet. So much of our travels revolve around our work schedules and are planned many, many months in advance, and while I’m unbelievably thankful to have the chance to experience all of those planned trips, there’s just something special about the slightly more spontaneous ones.
Our September trip to Sonoma is the best example of this – the days we spent there were easily my happiest days of 2013, but we didn’t start planning the trip until July. Wine country was a place we’d always dreamt of visiting, but somewhere we had no idea we’d be exploring at the start of the year. Things fell into place for us to book our trip just a couple of months out, and I’m so grateful they did.
Simply put, not knowing what the year holds for us just makes me all the more excited to get this year started. Thank you all for following along with these adventures of ours, big and small – we’re so happy that you do. Best wishes to all of you in 2014!
