bag

After a few weeks off, this weekend kicked off my 2014 speaking and travel season. I spent this weekend in Texas, and the next few weekends go like this:

  • Gatlinburg
  • Los Angeles
  • Atlanta
  • Austin
  • Nashville
  • San Fransisco
  • Louisville
  • Augusta, Georgia

And by “next few,” I mean I have Valentine’s weekend at home, the Girls of Grace in Nashville at home, and then my next weekend off is March 22.

(You can see my full speaking calendar here– we have a few weekends left in the spring if you know of anyone looking for a speaker. And we’re starting to book the fall so let me know about that too!)

I absolutely LOVE this season of my life. I won’t always be able to travel this much, I won’t always want to. But while I want to and while I can, it is a blast. Seeing so many cities, meeting so many people, eating at so many hole-in-the-wall local places. It’s the best.

I instagrammed from the airport on Friday, and got comments about 2 things:

1. travel

2. THAT. BAG.

So I thought I’d do a series of posts on what I’ve learned from traveling, being at a whole lot of different churches and venues each year, things I don’t leave home without, how we decide where to eat, what luggage I use, who goes with me, how to carry fifty pounds of books across the country, these types of things.

But I’d love to know what you want to know about road life. Like, what questions can I answer for you? 

And as for THAT. BAG., it was a Christmas gift from a dear family that I love, so I don’t exactly know where to get it. But the tag on the inside is QBSDesigns.com. So maybe check there? And it is as amazing as it looks- the handles are long and sturdy, the design is gorgeous, and it easily holds all the things I travel with in my carry-on.

… which is a list I will write about in the next Road Life post!
