It has been a little while since I did a summary post. Things have been quite hectic around here over the last month or so! Now, it is getting busy again with trip planning. I have booked many trips in the last couple of days, some with some great deals. So, it will get busy again soon!

Miles, Points, and Travel

And that is it for last week! I hope you all have a great week this week as we head out of October very soon! I cannot believe where this year has gone!
