In December 2018 I decided that our 2019 word of the year would be “adventure.” In my heart and gut I just knew that 2019 would be adventurous…because I wanted it to be. And my, oh my, was it ever. Wynston and I traveled to 12 states, I grew as a confident woman, and I started dating a man who would forever change me. It was a year to remember, although it definitely wasn’t easy.
Wynston and I have a boundless amount of travel experience. We mostly adventure in our car (although sometimes we do fly), and there are several items that I will not leave home without when we do.
Typically we travel to moderate or warm climates, where bringing specialty items isn’t necessary. However, you definitely need to consider packing differently if you’re heading to a cold part of the world. Here’s my personal list of cold weather travel essentials for dog moms.

Back in January I chose my ‘word’ for 2019. I picked “adventure” because I knew I wanted to spend time traveling, exploring and trying new thing with Wynston. And boy, 2019 has been a year of adventures so far! It’s been an incredible last six months, really. I thought it would be fun to outline our travels thus far with some statistics. Here goes!
I was born in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1988. I am a Hoosier through and through, but I’ve lived in Arizona for 20 years now. Indiana is “home” but as of mid 2019 it had been 10 years since I had visited. Needless to say, I was due for a trip back, so I decided June was the perfect time. Not only was I dying to go back home but I was also super stoked to take Wynston to see where I grew up. Our trip was incredible, and I already can’t wait to go back.
Wynston and I travel a lot, and it’s rare that we take a completely flawless trip. Granted, I’ve learned how to adapt to any sort of change in our travel plans, so I’ve become a pro at improvising. However, it can be stressful when something doesn’t go as planned. Whether your flight gets cancelled, it’s raining at a destination where you planned to partake in outdoor activities, or your dog has a medical emergency, I have tips (all from experience) on how to handle the situation.
