Happy New Year! Happy New Decade!!
I am no “New Years Resolution” type, but I am ridiculously optimistic. I love the feeling of a clean slate, and think every day is a new chance to work on being the best version of myself. So I always find myself brewing a pretty lengthy list of goals for the beginning of the year. I’m excited to share my hopes and goals for 2020!
Before we dive into 2020, I have to acknowledge my accomplishments for 2019. It was a huge year for me. I stepped so far out of my comfort zone that I wouldn’t be able to find my way back if I tried. I have some annoying social anxieties on occasion. You could call me an extroverted introvert. While I am a big proponent of “bring your own sunshine”, I do absorb a lot of energy from people around me and the environment we are in. This makes certain social situations extremely mentally exhausting, while others are a great rejuvenation… and I never know which it will be ahead of time.
A lot of this has changed in 2019. Having a blog that requires me to share my thoughts and stories is a huge step in the right direction. I have reached out more, purposely put myself into social situations that I didn’t have a clear outcome ahead of time. Most importantly, I have gained a lot of emotional intelligence and built up my self-confidence more than I thought I could. I even conquered a few fears (except birds, still deathly afraid of birds!).
On the travel front, we took a lot of great trips in 2019! My youngest son got his first passport stamps and we finally visited a few places we have been talking about for years! Each time we stepped into a town that we had never been to before, it made me hungry for more. We have big plans for 2020 and hope that you will stick around to join us!
To start, we are heading to Savannah, Georgia in a few weeks! It will be our first Airbnb stay. We are going along with friends who have utilized Airbnb before, so they took the lead on picking a good place for us all to stay. I’ll be sure to share all things Savannah once we return. If you have any recommendations, please share them in the comments below!
If you haven’t used Airbnb before, here is a coupon for $55 off your first trip!
We hope to add a lot of new destinations to our travel plans throughout this year! I hope to visit more European cities, Canada & as much of the U.S. as possible. Check out my other goals! 👉
Where are you excited to visit?! Do you have some trips planned for 2020 already? I sure hope so and I would love to hear about them!! Thank you to the many travel bloggers who are also sharing their stories. Each post about all of your fun trips and travels are inspiring and helpful!

I hope you love Savannah! I lived in Georgia for nearly 30 years so it’s one of my favorite cities! Have a great time and I’ll look for trip articles once you return.
Sounds like you have an interesting 2020 planned. Enjoy! I like how you have a plan of 2020 goals.
I love the goals you listed and some sort of travel is always at the top of my list as well.
I’ve always wanted to be in Europe for the Christmas markets! Good luck on achieving all your goals and enjoy Savannah!
Same! and Thank you! The Easter Market in Prague had me wondering how amazing they would all be for Christmas!! Definitely on my list of things to do!! 🙂
Savannah is one of my favorites! A start to a fabulous New Year!
I’m a social introvert also – we’re officially called ambiverts (it’s a thing!). Congrats on all you accomplished in 2019 and wishing you much success in 2020! Looking forward to hearing about your new adventures!
HA! I despise birds as well! Keep working towards conquering your fears! <3
Love seeing your photos. We are excited to visit more areas in Arizona.
I completely feel you about the emotional things. I’m the exact same. Traveling has taken me out of my zone for sure. Savannah is beautiful, I’m sure you will love it! Excited to follow along on your 2020 adventures.
Savannah sounds so fun! I have never been! Have so much fun!
Sounds like your 2020 will be great. You will love Savannah. Such a beautiful city!
My daughter is always talking about Savannah! I am looking forward to visiting after reading this. Thank you for sharing.
Can’t wait to read about Savannah, always wanted to visit. We are working out our 2020, but hope to have a lot of adventures.
Have fun in GA! Congrats on 2019 and great enthusiasm into 2020. Stepping out of comfort zones is huge!
Hey, I’m located just outside of Savannah! I would love to meet up if you have free time or I will be happy to answer any questions!
Savannah is on my travel buck list. I have always wanted to go there. I love all your goals for 2020. I have all kinds of goals, but one big one is a trip to the Canadian Rockies. I can’t wait to take my family there this summer.
