What an incredibly busy, exciting, and memorable month May turned out to be. Spring was in full bloom and we are just about to wrap up our first year on the east coast. But before we hit that milestone we had an incredible month to catch up on.
It was only a year ago (almost to the day) that we realized that we might actually be moving across the country. As I write this look back at April 2019 I can’t think of how much has changed in our lives over the last year and how quickly we’ve acclimated to our new lives in New York.
We did it! We made it through our first New York winter. I spent so much time mentally preparing myself for the frigid winter that when it came it was not actually all that bad. Of course there were a few days where the temperatures were so brutally cold that all I wanted to do was run home, get under a blanket and have a cup of hot coffee. But most days we bundled up and went about our day. And so as March has rolled to a close we’ve closed the chapter on our first winter and welcome spring with arms wide open.

I’ve been doing goals or new years resolutions for most of my adult life. I started publishing my big goals for the year back in 2015. I’m not always perfect but its a good way for me to be accountable for what I want to accomplish for the year ahead. I’ve had my list of 2019 goals written down since October of 2018, but was late in getting them on the blog. I’ve made my goals far more straightforward this year. Five goals, no sub-goals and I plan to hit all five. Let’s go through them.
Each year when I sit down to write my year-in-review it is as much about looking back as it about looking ahead. Of any year I’ve written one of these years-in-review, 2018 is a year that I want to make sure I capture, because it was a time of incredible travel, major milestones, small simple moments and tremendous life altering change. And so without further ado I give you our 2018 year in review.
It’s that time of year again! Jenn and I have spent times independently looking back at the year that was and talking about some of our favorite things from 2018. From TV shows, to vacation stops, to memories, we’ve written down our favorites from 2018, and here they are!
We’ve come to the end. Our last day in Lisbon and our last day on this extraordinary adventure has arrived and it was hard to come to terms with it this morning. So much so that we just tried to sleep through it. We didn’t wake up until a little after 9 AM. I went to get us some Starbucks and we stayed in and relaxed until noon.
