Admittedly, when I began Craveable Cleveland back in January, I did intend for it be a slightly more Cleveland-focused blog :). But life has gone from good to better all year long and I’ve been enjoying all of the benefits. I’ve always loved to travel but after moving to DC in 2009, my travel budget quickly became my rent money. Well actually, that was all of my money. Of course I didn’t mind too much because I was living in our nation’s capital – and in your mid-twenties, how great is that?
But since returning home to Cleveland last October, I’m loving all of the things I’d missed while living away. Like, having money to travel. I’ve also been so very lucky in that my work schedule allows for lots of time off. Time + Money = 9 vacations in 2013. What a year it has been!
Seeing new places, eating delicious food and spending time with the ones I love are among my top favorite things to do in the universe. And so, 2013 has been one of the greatest years yet in the life of Beth.
Having said all of that, I’m so glad to be back in Cleveland, done vacationing for a while and eager to spend more time at home in my own kitchen and out in my own city. My wallet and my waistline will thank me, I’m sure. Vacations are great but home is always where the heart is <3.
