2017 has been ushered in by snap booking two incredible trips… FOR JANUARY! Which is already two weeks in. I know, crazy, right? My personality is one quarter spontaneous and three quarters serious planner so now that I’ve gotten the fun part out of the way, the planning begins!
I booked a yoga retreat in Bali, Indonesia and a gals weekend to celebrate one of my best friends’ birthday in Palm Springs, California. I’m over the moon about both trips and am having a hard time getting this grin off my face. I can’t wait to share all my mini adventures along the way. Be sure to check out my Instagram, where I’ll post pics and timeline updates on my story.
These two upcoming trips also have me reminiscing about my very first yoga retreat which I participated in in 2016, in the beautiful and wild Galapagos Islands. I’ll be flooding my Instagram with pictures over the next few days to fill y’all in, and will link to a blog post later with the full scoop.
Hope you enjoy hearing all about it and of course please send any recommendations for Bali and Palm Springs my way!
2016 ended with a bang, celebrating at my good friends’ wedding in Pittsburgh. It was so fun being surrounded by friends and ringing in the new year together, with the theme of love.
Looking back, in 2016 I moved into a new house, added a new puppy to the mix, finished the #52HikeChallenge2016, went on my first yoga retreat, visited 4 new countries and had countless fun adventures with friends and family. I also started AdventureAppeal with the aim of documenting and sharing adventures big and small — trips, hikes, yoga challenges, new neighborhoods explored — along the way to live life to the fullest.
I’m so excited about where 2017 is headed. Here are some of my goals for the year ahead:
- Visit two new countries (I’ve had this goal now for years and I love completing it!)
- Go on my 2nd yoga retreat and work towards a hand stand
- Complete the 52 Hike Challenge for 2017 : Adventure Series
- Develop AdventureAppeal and let it grow as my passion project
- Be a good wife & dog mom… and in general just a good human being!
I can’t wait to work towards these goals and have y’all along for the ride! What are your goals for 2017? Any new places to explore or adventures you’re dying to take?
