I’ve been thinking about TODAY since early March, when I first heard about the #bestjobontheplanet. Today, the contest has been called—early actually. There was speculation of cheating & false votes so @ThirdHome wisely called it and the winner has been named. No, I am not the winner 😞and I am not going to reveal that person here as they deserve to do that. 
However, this contest taught me that because of all of you, I already have “the BEST JOB on the PLANET.”🙌🏼🌏
Being a travel blogger/vlogger/content creator/self-employee is not always easy & sometimes I worry that I’m on the right path. All the fantastic feedback, support and “you’d be perfect for this” really helped me to trust myself and has sparked a new passion in me for continuing my lifelong journey of sharing & inspiring travel. 💚 I love what I do, despite the challenges and disappointments that come along the way. Making a positive impact on others’ lives through travel, makes it all worth it. 🤗
I do not regret trying through all 3 rounds of this contest, and I sure as hell am honored to have been 1 out of 17,000 people chosen for my luxury expertise, quality content and years of experience. 
The biggest prize for me has been all the messages, enthusiasm and individuals that went above and beyond to help me. 
Major props to these awesome travel friends @KirstenAlana, @valoriedarling, @scottmcfarlane & @bksrf for championing me on their Instagram accounts & huge thanks to @travelistateri, @duzer, @travizeo, @travelbarefeet, @kristasimmons, @tanveerbadal, @midliferoadtrip, @tourist2townie & @courtscott for sharing on twitter. Thank you @briantucky for all your help. I know many more shared emails, posts on Facebook and spread the word in other ways—for all you out there—I tip my hat to you. 🎩 All those efforts completely astounded me & I’m so thankful to know that every vote of mine was from a real person. 
Sorry for the long post—felt you deserved to know the full story. Now, back to doing what I love... let's go! ✈️
Seconds after I took this photo, we dropped 50 feet & got VERY wet. 💦 It is called Splash Mountain after all!

Looking forward to surprises on my next travel adventure-- this time back on the East Coast! Martha's Vineyard, get ready for me! Summer has hit! #happyplace ☀️⛵️⚓️✈️

Haha! Actually I am reflecting today on all the tremendous love & support that has come out of this race for Best Job on the Planet. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for so many incredible people believing in me and going to bat for me. 🙌🏼 Whatever happens, knowing that I have an even bigger network of support than I ever realized is the greatest gift. Thank you all 😌 I am truly humbled.
