My Year in Travel - 2017

As I scrolled through my BlogLovin' feed, I came across Leigh's post about her year in travel and I LOVED the idea.  When I began this blog (and again when I continued it), I asked myself what my purpose was, and one of the bullet points on that list was to encourage people to get out and explore the world around them, whether it is their own hometown, a neighboring state, or a foreign country on another continent.  With that, I wanted to share a quick recap of 2017's travel excursions in hopes of sparking the travel bug in y'all!

I didn't realize how much exploring 2017 held until I just went back and made this post.  I didn't even share all the new activities (and food!) I got to experience in both Nashville and Huntsville, nor all the random stops I made throughout the length of Illinois!! As of now I only have one trip planned in 2018, but I'm crossing my fingers that others will come up as we enter the new year. I'm hoping to explore a lot more of my new state of residency this coming year, so if you have any recommendations in Alabama (especially in Birmingham), please shoot me an email or comment below!
