Highbourne Cay 2016

B and I have traveled A LOT together. We have been together for almost 7.5 year, of which we have been married ALMOST 4 years.   In that time we have been many places- some better than others! 

We are very fortunate that almost yearly we take a trip on the boat to the Bahamas and various islands. There is nothing like being on a boat in the middle of the ocean, no land, boats or any other people in site. 

Last year was one of my favorite trips thus far.   We went to Highbourne Cay in the Exumas. The island was beautiful and the sunsets amazing.  Truly magical. 

This year we are headed to NYC for 5 days. I'm excited for the change in pace and I haven't been to NYC in YEARS. We switch off vacations to include some cities and lots of beaches. 

I will say in the 7.5 years we've been together we have been to some pretty great places - to name a few: 
Big Bend National Park
Washington DC
La Jolla
Various Bahamian Islands
Delray Beach

We love traveling and love visiting new places.

Long time away...

It has been over 2 years. Some things have changed, but mostly things have stayed the same.

Since it is the new year, I think I will start with a look back of 2016.

Where did you begin 2016? In Houston with B surrounded by friends at L and M's house.

Did you move anywhere? no.

Where do you live?  Htown

What is the one thing you thought you would never do, but did, in 2016?  I never thought I would be the sole breadwinner but I was in 2016 and it was empowering and also made me see that we truly are good at budgeting! 

What has been your favorite moment? Being in Highbourne Cay walking the beach with B. We were in a place few people ever get to see and taking it all in - we were unplugged and life was good.

What was something you learned about yourself? I learned that I am a really good friend, sometimes to the detriment of myself.

Any new additions to your family? My brother had a son this year and he is amazing.

Get a new job? nope

I truly feel so blessed to have such an amazing life!!!
