While I'm not usually one to jump on bandwagon's, a year-in-review is never a bad idea. It's good to take a breath, look back and gain some perspective on how you spent your time over the last 365 days. Plus, writing it all down means you can actually come back, read it again and learn from it!
So much happened in 2014, but the biggest news was that we finally decided to take the plunge and start the process of traveling full time! We're not on the road yet, but we're committed, have a plan and should be on our way in 2015. More on that later!
Here a few highlights of the Longnecker's 2014:
I had never owned any wool socks before my last trip to Indiana when my sister insisted that I buy these Smartwool socks.
She promised me that I would never go back to cotton socks. She promised me my feet would stay warm but not sweat, and she promised me that they would be worth the $15 per pair that I was about to pay. She promised me that I wouldn’t have to wash them more than once a week because they are wool and don’t harbor bacteria and she promised me that they wouldn’t stink.
Can we talk about planners for a bit? While I love my iPhone, I still have to have a pen and paper for lists and schedules. There is just something about writing things out. I have had so many different kinds of planners, but when I came across this Inkwell Press Planner I knew it was the one.
If you know me at all, you know I have a bag problem. I’ll admit that it has gotten better in the last couple years, but I still love to find functional rad bags and Birdling Bags delivers.
If you have kids with bunk beds you know how much you dread changing their sheets. It sucks, like, for real. I think I’ve found a solution. There is a company called Beddys and they make this zippered all-in-one sheet set! It’s genius. It has zippers on both sides, your child unzips one side to get in bed, then zips it back up in the morning and their bed is made and looks wonderful.
