The Best of Caravan Sonnet Travel - 2019

Caravan Sonnet Blog
Happy New Year friends! Today I wanted to take a moment to step back and look at some of the best of Caravan Sonnet travel in 2019 and am excited to remember these precious moments of travel. I am so blessed by my job as a travel writer and I am incredibly blessed by this amazing community that has been with Caravan Sonnet since 2013! As I look forward to some exciting new adventures with travel and collaborations in 2020 I can't wait to grow even more with you in this new year and new decade. Thank you for being such an amazing community!

January 2019
January brought so many sweet memories with it with lots of travel within a 5 hour space. To me these beautiful local adventures are treasures and I can't wait to share more in 2020 about the beautiful area that I live and hope to encourage people to visit more! It is truly so lovely and I am so incredibly blessed to live in this lovely section of the world.

January also brought the start of a new company off of Caravan Sonnet, December Lane which is a boutique collection of watercolor travel prints. You can find the shop HERE and read more about this beautiful adventure HERE. There are so many new prints that I am working on for 2020 and I can't wait to share them with you!

One thing that I hear a lot from people is that they just don't have "time or money" to travel like I do. I definitely understand and as this past year brought the beautiful opportunity (and health!!) to return to a full-time job, I have had to shift things around and plan out my travel a bit more than I used to. BUT... sometimes travel doesn't have to be "far away"... you can find adventure in so many different places... even if it is just spending time on the weekends exploring nearby...

Whether it is taking a walk in the snow in dresses in the mountains...

Or walking along the road by your house... beauty truly is everywhere and January sweetly reminded me of that!

Another thing that was new in January was the introduction of my YouTube Channel which you can find HERE! I am still exploring ways to use this and am excited to share more in the weeks ahead!

February 2019
I spent a couple of days out in San Fransico, California for my medical appointments and decided to take a couple of extra hours to drive around the city. As I was exploring during Valentine's Day week, I saw these adorable houses and decided that this is what Valentine's Day looks like in houses. *smiles*

This little adventure reminded me gently of what I was learning in January also- to explore surroundings you may feel you already know well. For me that was exploring a section of San Francisco that I didn't know well because despite spending months out there over the last 5 years, I have so much still to discover. Life is like that isn't it? Seeing the beauty all around us and grabbing those moments when we look for them.

The first big blog trip that I took in 2019 was a collaboration with the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort in Lake Placid, New York. I spent a beautiful (and chilly) couple of days over in Lake Placid and it was simply lovely. I enjoyed the stay so much that my mom and I went back for a night in the summertime. *smiles* You can read more about my stay HERE  and watch a video about the property and my stay HERE

April - May 2019
Starting in April 2019 I joined in with the #ADK50falls challenge which highlighted some of the best and most unique waterfalls in the Adirondack Mountains. This was a really fun challenge and while I didn't finish it because of taking a step back from blogging due to the loss of my precious daddy, I am looking forward to continuing it and finishing it this coming spring and summer. You can read more about the Waterfalls that I have documented HERE

In early May I also announced an exciting new project that I was doing entitled #10000in7days which was to help raise money for Make a Wish in Alaska since that is where I was traveling to. While we didn't raise the full amount of money, we did raise 3% of the final goal and it has encouraged me to definitely incorporate an aspect of giving back each year on the blog. THANK YOU to each of you who gave and donated - you truly have helped make a difference in the lives of those children!

August 2019
August 2019 brought two major blog trips and collaborations back to back and they both were incredible for a variety of reasons.

Alaskan Road Trip 2019
The first was a trip back to Alaska for a second Alaskan Road Trip that was a HUGE collaboration project with so many amazing brands and experiences. I had fallen in love with Alaska in the summer of 2018, but the trip this year was one of those perfect trips all around with the beauty, the adventure, and the two amazing women in the picture above. Sue, Emily and I had the most INCREDIBLE time and it was hands down one of my favorite trips I have ever taken. You can read all about our adventures HERE

Holland America Cruise
24 hours later after returning from Alaska, my mom and I headed out onto a precious once-in-a-lifetime cruise with Holland America. It was my first time cruising with them and it is a precious trip that I will never forget. I started blogging about our experience and will be finishing the rest of the cruise details in January, and you can find all of the posts HERE. It was truly amazing and we can't wait to sail again with them very soon.

November 2019
We finished out November with a special trip to the Balnea Spa in Bromont, Canada. It was our first time traveling to Bromont and we quickly fell in love with this area of Canada and are already planning a trip back. If you haven't been there I definitely recommend it and you can read more about our experience HERE

December 2019
In December we headed back to Canada for our now annual participation in the beautiful CBC Sing-In which we have loved in Montreal. If you haven't had a chance to be part of it or join in then I can't recommend it enough. It truly is lovely.
