While it's always easier to remember a year for the unexpected (and often unpleasant), recap posts are always a great exercise in focusing on the incredible. And 2022 had its fair share of incredible moments.
We kicked off the year at Dauphin Island, Alabama, where we logged beach miles and took in gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.
WE GOT MARRIED! After years of togetherness, we decided to elope in Sedona, Arizona. We experienced all four seasons in four days.
We enjoyed urban adventures in Texas, Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Georgia.
We walked among the wild horses on Cumberland Island, Georgia.
We reconnected with some of our favorite musical artists.
We braved a monsoon in Key West, Florida.
We launched several new HippieShine products, expanding our catalog of colorful and practical items for everyday adventures.
We hiked to see ancient petroglyphs and settlements in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Bandolier National Monument.
We "hiked inn" at Len Foote in Amicalola State Park.
We experienced weddings, birthdays, parties, funerals, sporting events, theater productions, and everyday adventures... along with all of the emotions that come with them.
As we welcome 2023, we're approaching the year with a blank calendar - which is a bit out of the ordinary for this adventure loving duo. No doubt, it will be another year of twists, turns, and everything in-between.
What do you have planned for 2023? Share your inspiration with us! We'll do a drawing for a free HippieShine trucker hat for those who comment by 11:59 PM PST on Sunday, January 8, 2023.
