Happy New Year! I’m looking ahead to more travel and fun in 2016. How about you?
We are just a few weeks into 2016, and I find myself really looking forward to the new year and all that comes with it. My New Year’s Eve celebration was so great! My son and sister were both in town. I can’t think of a better way to kick off a new year than with people you love. The new year brings with it new goals, new beginnings, and endless possibilities. My resolution for 2016 was rather vague at first, only to take better care of myself and to make ‘me’ more of a priority. After giving it a bit more thought, I’ve zeroed in on a few things that will help me accomplish my goals. I’m excited to partner with Clorox 2® to share how I plan to get more out of life and laundry. Looking ahead to more travel and fun in 2016!
Four things that I plan to do more of in 2016:
Get more exercise. As a blogger, I tend to spend too much time with my laptop. I live in an area with a lot of great walking trails, and look forward to getting outside and enjoying them.
Laugh more. I love to laugh and realize that I don’t laugh nearly enough. This year I’ll be doing things that bring me so much joy, I can’t help but laugh out loud.
Bring more music into my life. At some point in time, I stopped listening to music on a regular basis. Music used to be something I really enjoyed. I started the year by treating myself to a new iPod Touch and am enjoying my tunes. I love listening to Gregorian chants. They have such a calming and soothing effect on me.
Travel a LOT more. This one is really big for me. I had some great travel plans last year that were abruptly halted due to some health problems. Fortunately, I was able to finish off the year with a few fun trips that included a visit to New Orleans (picture above), and already have some great new travel plans for 2016. Here’s what I have planned so far:
Starting next week, I’m heading to Tennessee for a week and will be taking my son to a Nashville Predators game. I’m so excited for that! We love going to hockey games together.
This spring I will be in Europe for two weeks, touring Switzerland, Italy and France. We are traveling with an educational tour group that will include a lot of other parents and students. I will be traveling with my niece and friend Debbie. We’re going to have so much fun!
My sister, Cat, was visiting for New Year’s and while she was here, we booked a summer cruise to the Bahamas. I love cruising and this will be the first time I cruised with my sister.
At the moment, I also have Las Vegas and a Napa wine trips on my radar. Now that my son is older, I am able to travel more and plan to see as much of the world as I can.
Keeping clothes fresh and clean while traveling can be a challenge. At the end of the year, when I had some back-to-back trips my clothes went straight from my suitcase into the wash, then right back into my suitcase. Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster Liquid keeps clothes fresh and bright, even dingy clothes that have been in a suitcase for a week. Removing tough stains and brightening colors is easier with Clorox 2®. Use it to pre-treat set-in stains you thought would be there forever – even ones that have been through the dryer!
My niece and I have plans to try as many flavors of gelato as humanly possible while in Italy this spring. It’s sure to be a drippy mess, so I’ll be sure to pack a Clorox 2® Pre-Treat Stain Remover Pen in my suitcase. It’s a travel essential. Clorox 2® even works on tough stains like soy sauce, coffee, grass, wine and grape juice.
Using Clorox 2® means you’ll get more life out of your clothes, more looking good out of your closet, and more fun out of every day. It’s just what I need as I look ahead to more travel and fun in 2016. Follow the #Clorox2 hashtag for more inspiration.
