"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be." – Ralph Waldo Emerson

WE MADE IT!! That's what my grandmother and I cheered at midnight on January 1st. Through a wild series of weather and family events, I found myself spending the remainder of 2022 alone with my grandmother on her sofa, talking together, opening gifts, eating popcorn while watching The Thin Man movies on TCM, showing her my travels on Instagram, and eventually taking turns keeping each other awake through the last 30 minutes of 2022 that seemed to take as long as the year itself. Then, midnight arrived as we watched the ball drop in Times Square and were relieved to have made it to that moment - not only awake, but thankfully healthy, optimistic, and simply happy to be together again for the holidays after spending the last two apart. It wasn't easy getting to 2023, but we made it! My whole long weekend in Pittsburgh was filled with love and laughter with family all across Pittsburgh, and it was the best way to start a new year. It's never too late to make forever memories with your loved ones from near and far. Haven't seen someone you care about in years? Reach out and reconnect! Or bring everyone together for an adventure away from home for the next milestone, holiday, or special occasion, and let me take on the work of organizing the details and moving parts for your custom-designed journey to inspire. Maybe you resolved in 2023 to travel more with your family, friends, or just yourself, but... resolutions so soon can be forgotten. (I only remembered my 2022 resolution from an old Facebook post I scrolled by this week.) Are you familiar with setting goals that are SMART? It stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound. For example, instead of saying you really want to travel more this year, you could replace that with saying, "I will take my family to London for a week in July, and I will book the trip with Nine Muses Travel by the end of the month." See how SMART that was? Here's to all the places we'll go in 2023 and all the amazing adventures that await! Happy New Year! WE MADE IT!!
