Looking Forward: 2014

For the first 2 years of Jason's time at SWA, I honestly feel like we were traveling all time. We wanted to go everywhere and see everything we possibly could. This was great as we had so many amazing experiences - but it also didn't leave much time for anything else. This coming year, I want to work on improving the balance in my day to day life.

On the other hand, we've been really blessed in 2013 to see family more than ever, so that is one aspect that we've been really happy about. Between all the weddings, birthdays, bachelorettes and holidays, I really feel like we were able to strike a good balance.

My word for this coming year is: Selective
Now this is me we're talking about, so of course we will still travel, but we will be more conscious of the time we take to do it. Most of our trips will be shorter and closer to home (like New Mexico, Louisiana and within Texas). Non-stops are an amazing thing that we need to start taking more advantage of.
Another aspect is that we will be more selective with the places we go. Through our travels, we've definitely realized that just because a place is a "top place to travel", doesn't necessarily mean that we will like it. Same goes for attractions in each city. Rushing around to see everything in each place really doesn't make for a fun OR relaxing trip, so we're all for taking a step back this year.

We are definitely looking forward to bringing you more recaps of our amazing trips in 2014. Thanks for reading and I hope the new year brings you much happiness (with some travel mixed in)!

-Christy & Jason
