I love the beginning of the year because it is time to plan for all of those PTO days! 2016 was full of fun travels– a few trips to Florida, Cape Cod and even a spontaneous trip to Nashville (pictured above). 2016 was the year I learned how powerful a few days off can really be. Time to free your mind from work and normal NYC craziness is truly a gift.

I’ve already started 2017 with a sprint with three trips in January ?. But, with a fresh batch of PTO days to use, I’m planning for some more exciting adventures! If you have any recommendations for these destinations, please, please, please SHARE!


1| White Sulpher Springs, WV–  I celebrated the New Year at the Greenbrier resort with family. For a girl who definitely should have been born in the south, this resort melted my heart with southern charm and luxurious experiences.

2| Napels, FL— I enjoyed a few days in Florida at the beginning of January with my high school besties. It was the best way to start 2017!

3| Stratton, VT– I make various ski trips each year and so far they have been a blast!


4| Stratton, VT– I’m headed to Stratton TWICE in February. Stay tuned for a travel guide that includes my favorite places to eat, DRINK and shread powder. See here for some VT-inspired fashion. 


5| Austin, TX–  I’m headed to SXSW with my agency (360i). I’m overwhelmingly excited to experience this industry event, but may be more excited for the tacos! ?

6| Orlando, FL– I’ll be celebrating my baby sister’s 21st birthday in Walt Disney World! I’m BEYOND pumped!


I guess I’ll have to go to work this month. ?


7| Italy– This will be my first trip to Europe EVER! I’ll be visiting Rome, Venice, Florance, Milan, and Lake Como.

8| Switzerland– While in Lake Como we’ll be hiking the Alps in Switzerland!


9| Hampton Bays, NY– I’ll be missing the official start of summer since I’ll be in Italy, but I’ll make up for it in June, July and August!

10| Virginia- This one is still TBD, but I’ll be celebrating one of my high school friend’s bachelorette!


11| Martha’s Vineyard, MA— After such an amazing time last year during our day trip to the vineyard, Tom and I are hoping to take a long weekend!


12| Maryland– Again, another TBD trip, but I’ll be celebrating that same friend’s wedding!


13| Palm Beach, FL– It is grandpa’s birthday month!


14| Charleston, SC– This destination has been on my list for YEARS and I think this is the year I make the trip. Again, another place that will be perfect for my summer state of mind.


It’s birthday month! This one is special and still in the works. Stay tuned!


15| Stratton, VT– back on the slopes!

Woof! I didn’t realize how many trips I have planned until I started to write the blog post. Hoping to recap each of these experiences here with my recommendations and experiences! Stay tuned!
