Thank you to our fellow blogger friend, Kait at Communikait.com, for inspiring us to create this post! She recently shared her “2019 In Numbers” which is a great take on a yearly recap. It is such an awesome way to reflect back on what has happened this past year (all the highs and lows) and the accomplishments along the way! We have been blogging since 2015 but it is never too late to start a tradition: sharing our 2019 in numbers.

The prestigious @samaberesort, an all inclusive resort where walking is optional! . Samabe has 81 suites and villas on a high cliff, surrounded by lush tropical gardens that overlooks the Azul Indian Ocean. . Walking is optional here as they offer buggy rides (golf carts) throughout the property. Instead of trekking 171 steps to get down to the beach, they have a lift!👌👏 #samaberesort #wanderlustylexindonesia #wanderlustyledrone . . . . . #bali #balilife #baligasm #baliindonesia #baliguide #balivacation #balilivin #balivibes #balitravel #balitrip #balilife #explorebali #ilovebali #baliholiday #visitbali #balidaily #expediapic #forbestravelguide #cnntravel #tlpics #iamatraveler #dametraveler #travelandleisure #bestintravel #cntraveler #luxuryhotels
3 – New countries we visited this year such as Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. Bali has been on the top of my list to visit! Reid and I quickly fell in love with the country of Indonesia because of the people and their delicious food.
135 – Number of new blog posts in 2019! When we wrote down our 2019 goal, our target was to publish 156 blog posts – we were short by 21 blog posts. Not bad! Here is a few of our popular blog posts this year:

Our daily routine at the @waimeaplantationcottages: welcoming the first light on the porch rocking chairs followed by meandering out through 100 foot+ coconut trees to get some fresh Kona coffee in the lobby. Revitalized and ready for the day! 🌴🏠☕️ – #waimeaplantationcottages #wanderlustylexkauai . . . . . #lethawaiihappen #havealohawilltravel #hawaiiblog #hawaiitag #visithawaii #hawaiilife #hawaiiblogger #alohastate #hawaiinei #gohawaii #alohavibes #luckywelivehi #glimpseofhawaii #livealoha #luckywelivehawaii #hawaiistagram #kauai #kauaihawaii #kauailife #kauaistyle #kauailove #kauaiadventures #kauaiaswhy #visitkauai #discoverkauai
2 – We are extremely grateful to have been invited to two press trips this year. Our goal was at least one this year. Very thankful for the relationships we have made during these trips!
13,000 – We wrote down $10,000 to earn in 2019 from the blog and/or campaigns. For the year, we made over $13,000 from the blog without counting campaigns, partnerships, and side jobs we had. Having an ad management for the blog is very helpful, thank you Mediavine!
1 – Magazine feature! Not originally on any bucket list, we were lucky to have crossed this off at the end of the year. For Nov/Dec 2019 Hawaii Magazine issue, our photos were featured on a two-page spread!
After reminiscing this past year – all the memories we made, fun family travels, sunset and sunrise adventures, new things we tried, amazing food events we went to – we feel very appreciative for all of the connections and relationships we made. This year was filled with abundance and blessings!
