Traveling was a HUGE (as in gigantic) part of our previous life, and quite frankly, our rhythm, which may have seemed obvious to my friends & family but wasn't as obvious to me. I now realize when we touched down, my first thought was when was the next wheels up? Not the healthiest.

This year I tried to stay focused on the positive, another wards, keep my eye on the prize, which honestly was hard at times. That prize was to travel again (but with a different rhythm) to all the places we adore and inspire us endlessly (hello, Paris, Rome & Vietnam). I think it's now within striking distance, at least I'm starting to fantasize again.

I think we all learned to operate a bit differently, take stock in our blessings and take it down a notch, all the while working productively and creatively. Here are a few sofas & chairs I lounged in over the past year, they're comfy and welcoming, (and of course, super chic) and allow for hours of full-on travel research. I've also listed our favorite hotels in each spot, so you too can dream.
