I hope your holidays have been absolutely wonderful this week! As I sit here searching Pinterest for recipes to make with my new [easyazon_link identifier=”B00FLYWNYQ” locale=”US” tag=”wanderzestb00-20″]Instant Pot[/easyazon_link], I’ve also been thinking about what an amazing year 2017 was. Wanderzest has grown so much this past year, and such growth wouldn’t be possible without YOU. Thank you so much for supporting me on this incredible blogging journey!

This year, Jacob and I also got to feed our wanderlust by visiting four beautiful countries (an update coming soon on our latest trip!), we moved into a lovely little home, and we even started a business. It certainly has been one year we will never forget! I hope your year has been as equally amazing!
