It’s been seven months. Seven months since I started my business. SO CRAZY, right!?! Maybe not as crazy to you as it is to me, considering I’ve dealt with all things that come along with, but still. It has been an incredible ride so far, and I’ve learned a TON.
When I visit a new city I like to experience it like the locals do. Rarely do I opt to visit/experience a tourist attraction, frankly because I know it’s just that! I’d much rather walk like the locals, talk like the locals and play like the locals – it’s way more fun.
A couple weeks ago I was talking to my friend Michele about how much I wanted to do a “staycation”. You know, where you pretend you’re on a mini vacation by renting a hotel room and hitting the town like a tourist in your own city. Seriously, how fun!?
It’s no secret – I love to try new recipes. I constantly find myself “pinning” dips, cookies, apps – you name it, I’ve got a pin board for it. Go ahead, check it out. See? It’s a bit of an obsession.
My work has taken me to some really amazing places – all here in the U.S. (so far!) – and all very cool and unique in their own right. In fact, I was taken to some places that I probably wouldn’t have ever explored, had I not been “forced” to go for work. So for that, I’m thankful. But what’s really been cool about being able to travel so much is that I’ve learned that traveling by myself is actually a lot of fun. And rewarding at the same time!
