I find I’m at my best when I have a trip coming up. It’s something i’ve been addicted to a long time, and have always been happiest spending my money on plane tickets! Here’s a review of where I went in 2013
Fort Myers, FL/Sanibel Island, FL/Orlando, FL – visiting my family and seeing friends… always a good time. Not to mention – Matt’s first trip to Disney (since he was 8… and he doesn’t remember at all).
Atlanta, GA – I’ve been through atlanta millions of times, but this was the first time i stopped to appreciate it
Kylie’s gorgeous wedding!
Matt’s first stop at Ikea
Photo booth at West Egg Cafe – check out that first pic. We look good.
NYC #2: Thanks to our credit card miles for this entire trip… and for the sweet digs at the Conrad New York. Such a nice hotel! Our main purpose of visiting was the Lord Huron & Alt+J show in Central Park – which was awesome!

Got to hang with my cousin, NYC’s newest resident.
Yes… we are still in September. It was a crazy month! And this last trip went into October
Orlando + Caribbean: We road tripped down with two other couples to Epcot Food and Wine Festival… and then ventured on our 7 day cruise (and met up with 2 other couples, for 5 couples total!) Our ports were: Cozumel, Belize City, Roatan, and Costa Maya.
Epcot Food and Wine Festival! This was actually the first day of the event.
Peace out, America!
Self-imposed 80’s night.
Roatan. The best.
Atlanta #2 – We liked it much more than we thought! So we took a lovers getaway here for a day and a half to do some eating, drinking, and Ikea-ing (to fill up our almost renovated house!)
He’s fun 🙂
i LOVE the quote on the wall!
Capella Ixtapa – aka, heaven on earth. This is where we spent Thanksgiving and celebrated our anniversary (it’s also where we went our our honeymoon, so it’s sentimental for me!) Read more about Capella here and here.
December LA… for a few hours – We had an 18 hour layover leaving Mexico – so we got to see some wonderful friends!
Bozeman/Big Sky, Montana – it’s a winter wonderland for sure. It was also a bit of an arctic tundra this time… with nothing ABOVE -20 degrees the entire week we were there. Brrrrrrrrr. At least it’s pretty. We usually snowboard but I only mustered up the courage to go into the cold ONCE. 🙂
the Bozeman airport is the CUTEST

Matt’s eyes + Flash = nonexistent
Bismarck/Fargo, ND – after Big Sky, we road tripped back to North Dakota with Matt’s family. I also got to see my long lost roommate, Ashlee!!!
It was a crazy/amazing/wonderful/adventurous year. I wouldn’t do it any different.
We have a few things penciled in for 2014, but not a whole lot set in stone…. except the trip I’m going on Friday – stay tuned for details of that in Wednesday’s post! 🙂 I haven’t been to Europe in about three years… and i’m itching to go back! I’d also like to explore some new cities in the US – DC, Portland, Maine (anywhere in Maine, really), Asheville…. my list always goes on and on.
Where are you going in 2014? What’s your goal? Domestic, international… tell me tell me!
