I was definitely Filling My Bucket last night - Book Launch Party Success

“Filling My Bucket: A Year of Solo Travel Across Seven Continents” Book Launch + Signing Party last night was a huge success!

I am forever thankful and grateful for all of you and your continued support.

Cruise Control Kitchen & Cellar (555 Colorado Ave, Grand Junction, CO 81501) was the perfect venue and the espresso martinis were the perfect accompaniment to an evening filled with love and laughter.

What’s next? A weekend of relaxing and then packing up for a trip to NYC and onto Bermuda on a Celebrity cruise! Having only been out of the country one time in 2024, my suitcases and camera are starting to feel neglected so it’s time to pay them some attention! 😉

A day or two home in Colorado and then I’ll be road tripping back to the Upper Peninsula for a 4th of July celebration with friends and family. Some lake time will be in order along with some mouth-watering local foods like cudighi (look it up, you can thank me later) along with pasty’s and Congress Pizza.

I am still hoping to secure a book signing in the U.P. and details to follow if that comes together!

After the drive back to Colorado, Barnes and Noble Grand Junction becomes the site of the next book signing on July 13th, 2024 from 2-4p (2451 Patterson Rd, Grand Junction, CO 81505). Full details here:

I am not sure where this will lead but writing and self-publishing a book has been a very fun process. I have started working on a photo book which I plan on releasing in the Fall of 2023 in a collection of the most impactful moments of setting foot on all seven continents but I remain so thankful for the blog and all of the daily posts and memories as the days of my 2023 journey side into the distance.

Filling My Bucket: A Year of Solo Travel Across Seven Continents is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble in paperback and ebook formats.
