one of the top five things i hear from people is 
"before you have kids, be sure to get out & travel a lot." 
i love when people say that. i sincerely love it so so much.
before i met mr. schroeder, my family traveled pretty often. 
we would always have vacations planned the year before. it was a blast.
mr. schroeder didn't travel much. so i thought it would be a bit of a shift.
it had been about a month since we were married 
& we were in the finals for a vacation contest.
mr. schroeder talked to the camera first. he stated he wanted to travel before he had kids.
on that day, nothing could have made my heart smile more. 
if i could pick two passions i posses, it would be music and traveling.
i honestly feel it is so important to go out and see the world. 
see different things, experience new things, and step out of your comfort zone.
i took a challenge upon myself. once a year, go somewhere i haven't gone before.

that's not too hard. it doesn't mean you have to fly to tokyo. 
just go to the rope swing your husband talks about all the time three hours away,
drive to vegas for the weekend. 
i've heard that it's nearly impossible to be a free spirit once you're married. 
i will prove that analogy wrong. this year. 

in 2012, we managed to get a few places: 

the bahamas.

 lake powell.

sand mountain.

bear lake. my favorite place ever.

washington dc

{i went to} dallas, texas

{moved to} virginia beach, va

{moved to}: richmond, virginia

{moved to} alpine, utah

i can't believe how much change there was for us this year. good change.
i am looking forward to 2013. i am stoked. i am anxious. and i am blessed.
do any of you have travel plans? did 2012 take you anywhere unforgettable?
