5 Reasons to Visit Idaho || #TravelTuesday Travel Blogger Link Up

Happy #TravelTuesday Thursday fellow adventurers!! 
I may be a day behind, but with the rate that I am accomplishing things so far in 2019 I am taking that as a win- anyone else feel like they haven't quite caught up yet?! 
Can't wait to see all your travel posts! 

I am kicking off the year by sharing one of my favorite spots of 2018! After spending 7 months on the road, and traipsing through over 20 different states, you might be surprised to find that my favorite one was Idaho... yes, Idaho! I was just a shocked! We planned to drive through, spending a night on the way out west and again on the way back east. Plans changed quickly and here's why...

January Currently || HELLO 2019

Goodbye 2018, 
Hello 2019! 

We're only 3 days into the new year, but I'm linking up with Anne to share what January is looking like around here currently!

{Choosing} To be more positive! To be honest, the transition back to being settled in Florida hasn't been the easiest. We were ready to come back- to be closer to family, excited to start a new adventure- but didn't truly take the time we needed to decompress after being gone for so long. I don't handle transition well and we really didn't leave ourselves much of a buffer to ease back in to things. We just kind of jumped head first and it left me feeling moody and unfocused, which in turn made me a little cynical- which is typically not like me at all! I was all kinds of Eeyore gloom and felt a little like a failure; but we are starting to get into the swing of things, or maybe I just finally got myself into the right mindset, but either way I am trying to find my way back to my more optimistic self. So here's to positivity, even with the hard moments that may come, in 2019!! 

{Tidying} Everything! I am not the most tidy of people, but I really want to get reorganized so I am trying to work through the Simplified declutter your life challenge. I saw it on my friend Jenna's Instagram stories and have been trying to keep up with her when she shares the daily declutter prompt. Day 1 was take a trash bag around your house and throw away any trash. Day two was tidy your fridge. So far I still have to do both of those things, so we see how well I am already doing at rocking 2019!! 

{Resolving} Again, to be more organized!! I suck at using a planner, but with so much up in the air and all over the place the last year I have been trying to be better about using one. When I can actually remember to use it it truly does help me keep me mind less scattered. I used the Posh planner last year (about every other week) and while I loved it, I am looking for something that will be even better at keeping things sectioned this year. Anyone know of any good planners to try? I need monthly tabs and a lot of space for each day of the week! 

{Exploring} All the hidden corners in New Smyrna Beach! We are trying to branch out of our usual go-to spots and it has led us to some great places. Babe also gifted us Disney passes this year and I am beyond excited to explore even more of the most magical place on Earth! So much has been added since we were last there and I can't wait to get started. 

{Refreshing} My Goodreads list! Up until now I have only been using Goodreads to keep track of the books I want to read, but I want to actually set a reading goal and meet it. I met last year's gold ten fold, with all the reading I did on the road, but I never went back and recorded the books I read. As it sits now Goodreads thinks I am an epic failure. I plan to be more on top of it this year, until then I will just keep building my "want to read" list!! Help me out; what are some of your favorite reads? My most favorite recent reads were The Great Alone and Where the Crawdads Sing; if you haven't read them yet, do yourself a favor! 


And that's it for me so far this year! 
What does life look like for you currently?
