I don’t know about you, but this year seemed to fly by! Like any year there were ups and there were downs, but I’m happy to say it was mostly ups! As far as travel is concerned I wasn’t sure I’d ever beat 2016, but with trips to, New Orleans, the American Southwest, and London not to mention road trips throughout California, and extensive exploration of Los Angeles I would say 2017 definitely gave it a run for it’s money.
Welcome to this week’s edition of Faraway Files a fabulous travel blogging community where people from all over the world share their travel tips, inspiration and adventures! I think of it as the modern day form of having a pen pal(s)!
I’m excited to be to be using our new Faraway Files logo, which includes Corey and I, for the first time!
What’s my favorite thing about living in a popular vacation destination? The number of visitors! I absolutely love it when friends and family come to visit (hint, hint), and not only do I love their company, but it’s the perfect opportunity to be a tourist in my own town! Bonus: All those delicious meals together!
Hilarystyle is about travel, fashion and fun, but I admit it’s been awhile since I’ve written about fashion. Truth be told it’s hard to think about a change in wardrobe when here in LA it hardly seems like we ever have a change in seasons. Not that I’m compaining about what feels like perpetual summer.
Music plays a large roll in our family’s everyday life, in fact as I write this I can hear my older son practicing his guitar in the other room. Lucky for us we all have similar taste in music. I’m not sure if it was our blatent attempts to infuse our musical tastes into the boys right from the start, or if its just a happy coincidence, but either way we lucked out. I’m so grateful!
Welcome to Faraway Files a weekly travel link up! I’m particularly excited about this week because I’ll not only be joining up, but I’ll also be co-hosting this amazing travel community along with Erin from Oregon Girl around the World, Clare from Suitcases and Sandcastles, and Corey from Fifi & Hop. I discovered the Faraway Files travel blogging community around week four and have been faithfully contributing each week since.
