Happy New Year! If you’re subscribed to my newsletter you may be receiving a summary of this post (and if you’re not click here, I only email about once a quarter). Both to keep me accountable and to let you know what content is coming down the pipeline, I decided to put my plan of Texan Travels blogs out here!
I can’t write trip itineraries or provide recommendations for locations, restaurants or stays without experiencing them for myself. So in order for you to look forward to my upcoming Texan Travels blogs, I need to look back on my travels!
Texan Travels Blogs: 2019 Trips to Expect
Wow. What a year it has been. I started with a trip to see my oldest friend, that I have known since first grade, get married in Dallas. Then the last trip of the year, was one to my sister’s in East Texas for a family Christmas party!
I don’t share many personal things on my blog outside of trips, but this last trip to East Texas is one I’m so glad I took and that I’m glad so many of my family was able to make. We lost my Aunt Kim, my dad’s sister, unexpectedly. It was a true blessing for us all to be near her and to hug her one last time. It gives me peace to know that she knew the Lord.

2019 Work Trips: Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, San Antonio & Tulsa
Being a marketing consultant has allowed me to travel and work from remote area. But in 2019, I was asked to go and visit the customers of one of my clients. I took full advantage of these trips and made sure I took notes to relay back to you! I haven’t been able to get many blogs together for these cities, but here are the ones you can currently find on my site:
The two post ideas are vague and widely encompassing, you can expect multiple posts to come from just these two ideas:
- Places to eat in all the cities above
- Accommodation recommendations
I’ve recently moved from Houston to The Woodlands, which is just north of Houston. So while I have tons of restaurant recommendations, coffee spots and breweries to share in Houston, I’m excited to also start sharing hotspots in The Woodlands! Click here to see all of my blogs relating to Houston.
2020 Trips for Texan Travels
This year has some exciting things in store for me, my family and, of course, Texan Travels! I’m planning TWO international trips this year. My New Zealand plane tickets have already been booked, but that’s about it for that trip! January 2020, is going to be full of planning and researching for our 10-day trip abroad!
The new year isn’t only going to be incredibly busy, crazy and fun, but July is looking to be my craziest month of all! I will be attending a wedding near Lake Tahoe and my family is planning a vacation to The Bahamas. My immediate family! That includes my siblings and their significant others and children. Matthews party of 16, here we come!
