Happy New Year!

2018 just started and I am already daydreaming about the places it will take us! It is definitely harder to travel with a toddler (and an added infant this summer) but I never want that to hold us back from exploring new places, near and far. I started making a list of travel goals for 2018. A first, for me, will be traveling without Keith and Conor. I'm looking forward to it...but I'm definitely a little sad too. They are the best travel companions!
Los Angeles
At the end of February I will be traveling with my sister-in-law and her business partners to LA. It will be a quick 4 day trip, but I'm excited to explore Catalina Island solo while they are in an all day conference. I'll be fairly pregnant at this point so I'm hoping for a smooth, comfortable pregnancy like I had last time. Fingers crossed!

The parents of one of my best friends from high school relocated to Bemidji a couple of years ago. We're hoping to make a visit this summer with Conor and our new baby. Bemidji is gorgeous in the summer and I haven't been there since I was a kid!

Since we couldn't make our trip to Milwaukee work last summer, I'm looking forward to trying again this year. Hopefully we can catch the Twins while they are in town (and maybe take advantage of grandma and grandpa's offer to watch the kids for a short weekend).

Girls Trip
A couple of my friends who live out of state were talking about taking a trip together at some point next fall. We don't know where yet, and frankly, it doesn't matter where! I am really hoping that we actually go through with it because it has been too long since we have spent quality time together and I miss my girls!

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park
If I'm honest, I don't see this one happening in 2018. Sleeping Bear Dunes is about an 11 hour drive from home and that's a lot of driving for a 2.5 year old and an infant (even if we break the drive up into 2 days). I want to keep it on my list though because it looks like a beautiful place to visit.

Where are you traveling this year?

XO, Bev
