I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we are coming to the end of 2018.  At the end of every year, I take a minute to reflect on the travels and milestones of the year.  This year didn’t feel as crazy as some years past, but we definitely explored some new places!

Personal highlights

Right now as this posts, we’re on a Caribbean Cruise celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary.  I turned 30 this year as well.  Some big milestones!

That also means we celebrated 10 years of traveling together this year.  I wrote a series of posts reflecting on some incredible trips!  In ten years, we traveled 121,400 miles, which is 12 percent of the world.  We’ve been to 3 continents, 17 countries and 169 cities.

We purchased a vacation property with two homes on it that we are renovating with two other families.  It’s going to be a haven for years to come!  We are real excited about it.

That’s a wrap, 2018.  I can’t believe it.

I wonder what 2019 will bring?
