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.

I am a history nerd. Growing up my dad was always giving me “history lessons,” and it’s something I took with me into adulthood. In 2011 I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in history and culture from Arizona State University. Now, although I don’t use my degree, my love for history will never die. There are a few monumental historical events that I’ve preferred to focus my studies on, but recently I’ve become slightly obsessed with the Bonnie and Clyde story.
My fascination with their tale brought Wynston and I all the way to Joplin, MO to check out some artifacts of Bonnie Parker, and the trip was much more exciting than I anticipated.
At a time where news is always negative and social media is running rampant with depressing stories, here’s one of human kindness and compassion. This is a story of how the employees at a small town Travelodge took immediate action to ensure my dog’s safety when I was rushed to the hospital.
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!
