Quite honestly, this year went too fast. To say that the time blew by would be a complete understatement. It was a year of risk, it was a year of blessings, and a year I don’t think I could ever forget. There were so many sweet memories like opening a business as a travel consultant with Divine, swimming with sharks, traveling half-way across the world to Australia, and spending ten days in Europe in a carry-on across 3 countries. 2014 was a year of blessings and it would not have been the same without the support of my husband, my family, my friends, and you guys! I truly am thankful for every lesson learned, all the memories made, and for the year to come. I have some exciting news that will be coming out this upcoming year and am excited to share this adventure with you! You guys are the ones who inspire me to share the world of travel and push every day to follow my dreams. Bon Traveler was created out of a place of wanderlust and it has been such a blast to have this space to share with others. So thank you for following along and all of the support!
