Hey everyone! I hope ya’ll made it through Christmas full of joy and excitement for the new year.
I’m currently in Nashville, on a quick road trip from St. Louis, where I spent Christmas and will be spending New Years Eve. I’m so lucky to be able to travel as much as I do, this year alone I have been all over the US, to Europe a few times, and even a trip to Mexico! Travel will be most likely slowing down for the next year as we gear up (and save) for our wedding in October and honeymoon following, but I’m sure we will be getting out for at least a few long weekend trips before then. Be on the lookout for travel updates and a post in the next few months about my favorite airport & plane eats!
