October of 2016 marked the first year of my family and I living out in California! That's crazy to me that we've already been there a year. It doesn't feel like just one but like ten! I've split my time between Kansas and there but love it. From the weather to the people and just the great atmosphere out there. I have loved my year in California!
First Time Traveling to Hawaii
Every year I travel more and more and check off more places on my bucket list. This year I checked off Las Vegas, Hawaii and Fiji. It was my first time to Hawaii and I absolutely loved it! I had the best time and can't wait to go back and explore the other islands!
First Time Traveling Internationally
Fiji (Coming soon!)
It was also my first time traveling internationally which was quite the experience. From getting my passport in 3 weeks to going through customs to traveling back from Fiji by myself. But now I can say I've done it and now I feel like I can do anything! In 2017 I want to travel abroad more and have my sights set on Australia, England and Mexico. We'll see where the year takes me!
First time to Disney
In May one of my best friends came out to visit me for the summer and we went to Disneyland for the first time! We spent the entire day up there and had the best time of our lives. It was so much fun and we had a blast. I can't wait to do it again!
First Time Taking Public Transportation
I know it seems bougie of me that it took me 22 years to take public transportation but it has! It's easier to drive everywhere in Kansas and get places faster than it is in California. I first took the train when I went up to Disneyland in May and since then I've taken the trains and buses all throughout Southern California from LA to San Diego. They're really nice, pretty inexpensive and can take you basically everywhere. I will definitely be using it more this next year!
