Thankful For ... Adventures

Lately I have been overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible opportunities I have been blessed with this past year! I truly am thankful for all the adventures! So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving I've decided to reflect on this last year and recap just a bit.

Over the last year, traveling has become my second nature, and while I think that everyone has to find a style that works for them, I am definitely an advocate of "experiences" over "things". Moreover, I have learned that there is so much to do, to see, to experience in every new place! Therefore, I am kind of against the idea of a destination bucketlist..  I just don't believe that spending two days in Paris, for example, means that I can cross France off my list.  There is so much more to a destination than getting a stamp in your passport and calling it good. Thus, I have crafted a little something I call "The Adventure List"! Doesn't that sound so much more fun than a destination list? Granted, it is a work in progress, but I think I have got a pretty solid start!
If you wanna check it out, click on the page, titled " The Adventure List", in the side bar over there ---->

But I digress, back to the recap. Like I said, I am one lucky girl to be where I am today!  I can't believe another year has flown by! Thanks for reading along.
