I have been having more "Look Forward"moments in my life. As you all know, I was recently divorced, and I've had enough of thinking of the past. Now I'm all about embracing the future and I want to make every moment a Look Forward moment. I mean, the future is bright, and I have the rest of my life ahead of me, so why dwell on the past? With that in mind, I've been going to all the places I wanted to go but was never able to when I was married to someone who hated traveling...It always seemed to friends and family - and my blog readers - that I lived an amazing life, but the truth is that there were A LOT of things I wanted to do but was never able to. Whether it was because of work, or my marriage or that I was busy raising my daughter, my bucket list is still quite long, and I am determined to start attacking it with a vengeance! Chase Ultimate Rewards is helping me do just that by making it easier and more affordable to travel and capture those Look Forward moments.
How I'm Looking Forward with Travel
I love to travel. Not very surprised, are you? If you've read much of my blog at all, you know I'm a travel fiend, so my Look Forward moments are all about travel. In fact, in the last few months, I've done more traveling than at any other time in my life, and I'm just went on an extra special trip that might be simple to some, but it really means a lot to me! My dad is from North Carolina, and we have an annual family get together the first weekend of August. Since I was married, that family vacation always revolved around being near Deal's Gap, a motorcycle riding destination - because my ex-husband loved riding his motorcycle there. Well, now that I am a single gal, my daughter and I planned the family vacation the way I always wanted it to be...spending that time in the mountains of the Blue Ridge Parkway, surrounded by my family!

Good for you for scheduling the vacation you want! Most of my look forward moments involve my family, some of them being travel.
I love that! I love taking vacations with the family, but planning them can be frustrating and time consuming. This would certainly lessen the headache!
The majority of our Look Forward Moments are travel related and they're ALWAYS family related. That's why I'm excited about this. I LOVE traveling, but I hate the prep and planning. Ugh!
Sounds Like A Credit Card I Could Really Benefit From I Have A Chase Bank Account They Are Great, I Must Get One!!
Although I was just on a trip with my family, I would love to plan a getaway again. It is such a great experience filled with wonderful memories.
Chase sounds like a great way to save for traveling. Good luck with your new adventures!
