Starting 2016 Off with a Bang Travel Announcement


Oh friends, if you’re tuning into this blog post today, then you’re in for a real treat! Not only am I letting you in on a few of my travel plans for the year, but I’m also sharing a sneak peek of what’s coming to the blog tomorrow (in typical Monday’s Mash-up fashion)!

So if you read the subtitle of this post, then you know that my word for the year is adventure.  This year I really want to invest my time into pushing outside of my comfort zone and embracing the adventure that’s all around me.  Now it would be really easy for me to scapegoat this word and use it as an excuse to travel more… but what I really want to do is push myself within my own surroundings! Adventuring more could mean trying my hand at gardening- something I am most certainly not good at (you can just ask all the plants that used to be living at the apartment… that ended up on our back porch instead as some type of plant graveyard, AKA a pile of soil.)  It could mean deciding to get outdoors more instead of curling up for another evening of Netflix (though, let’s be real… Netflix will most definitely be occupying my time in 2016! How else can I convince myself to run on the elliptical?)

But to keep this post really, real, I’m also so excited that we do have some super fun trips coming up for the first half of the year and traveling is always an adventure:

January 11-25 Auckland & Queenstown, New Zealand and Sydney, Australia
March 14-18 – Charleston, South Carolina
June 29-July 13 Cross-Country Road Trip


Be sure to follow along on Instagram with the Hashtag #laurenlovestravel!  My first leg of the #PassportToThePacific and #TheGreatPhotoEscape is happening a week from today! Yay!

And as promised.. here’s a little sneak peek of what’s coming to the blog tomorrow! It’s going to be a good one, y’all!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!
