Seems like for everyone I know, including me, 2018 was a rollercoaster of a year. I can personally say that some parts were incredibly fun and filled with euphoria…other parts which I would prefer to move on and learn from were…let’s just say…challenging. But as Hunter S. Thompson said, “Buy the ticket, take the ride.”
I don’t know about you, but I just had to wait for that December 2018 calendar page to turn for my lungs to breathe a big sigh of relief. I made it. You made it. We made it. And here we are.
So where do we go from here? It’s been a while since I last posted–among other things requiring my time and energy, I experienced tremendous growth of my business in 2018 to the detriment of this blog. A big thanks to everyone who supported me–I am so grateful! This year, I’ll be building on my entrepreneur successes but not neglecting my blog in the process. I just enjoy writing it too much.
So, in 2019, look for more fun and inspiring posts from me on food, travel, and learning. And keep your eye out via social media and my Google events calendar for upcoming classes, tours, workshops, and talks around the community *and* abroad (Italy 2020, anyone?). Just click on the Events Calendar tab above or this hyperlink.
Before leaping forward into 2019, let’s take a look back at 2018’s travel highlights. Despite the challenges I faced, we did a whole lot of exploring and I am so grateful for the experiences. Aided by wise budgeting, side hustle income, great gas mileage from my Prius, and savvy research, we were able to do and see a lot. The highlights I’d like to share with you are below in collage form. Enjoy!
Winter, Spring, and Summer: Mountains, Canals, and Cities
More Summer: Mountains, Museums, Animals, and Beyond
Fall and Winter: Cities, History, Fashion, and More
Let’s Savor 2019 Together

OMG–please let me know what you think. I’ve been twice and am totally entranced.
You got to see Rodarte!!! Lucky you!
It was so amazing–and everyone in the exhibit area was euphoric. Fashion that is imaginative, creative, and optimistic. But you can still catch it–it’s there till early February. 🙂
