2016: A Year in Review

What a year! I think we may have topped 2015 with all the travelling we did, so many amazing trips (and amazing food!) We started the year off with an incredible ski trip to Banff, the Fairmont Banff Springs is hotel perfection, I cannot recommend it enough. I was lucky enough to spend a long weekend in Aspen with a couple girlfriends, girls trips are always so much fun and we certainly had a blast. We spent a week in Whistler over Spring Break, and while it wasn't the greatest skiing, the scenery was spectacular. We enjoyed quite a few weekends in San Antonio, visiting friends, Six Flags and eating lots of delicious TexMex. Of course we had to get a trip to Disneyland in, a long weekend in May provided perfect weather and a ton of Disney fun. In the summer, we returned to Banff for a week with my parents. Lake Louise is so beautiful and we had a great time canoeing and horseback riding. Our big two week trip was to Fiji and New Zealand. The highlights were the amazing outer islands of Fiji and visiting an active volcano on White Island in New Zealand, the lowlight was losing my bag for three days in Fiji. We visited Disney World over Labor Day, which is becoming a family tradition. I had two more amazing girls trips, one to Lake Charles for gambling and relaxation, one to Vail to visit my best friend and her new baby boy. We had a whirlwind trip over Thanksgiving break, Tokyo, Hong Kong and an eight hour layover in Chicago for lunch at Carmine's and an afternoon at Lincoln Park Zoo. We had to visit Tokyo Disney and Hong Kong Disney, along with a bunch of sightseeing. C and Miss F visited Las Vegas for a weekend of Penn and Teller magic, while I stayed home for holiday booze and cookie exchanges. I cannot believe how much we have toured this year.

Below are the top posts from last year...and Miss F totally approves of this list, lots of her favorites.

 Wishing you all an amazing 2017!
