Hi there and welcome to my blog. I am an internet-addicted, coffee-obsessed entrepreneur with 5 crazy munchkins through birth and adoption and the most amazing and supportive husband in the world who always keeps us laughing! My background is in marketing and advertising + I have 4 successful start-ups under my belt as well. Oh, and I have a thing for travel and organization 😉
A little about us
My munchkins ages range between 5-16 years old and while they keep me hecka busy I still can’t shake my main passion in life… Traveling the Globe! So, I pack ’em all up and drag them along for the ride.
When we are not traveling we are hanging out in beautiful Southern CA. We live in a wonderful suburb located between Los Angeles and San Diego. We love spending time together, baking and cheering on our favorite sports teams (SF 49ers, Clippers, Kings and Angels).
I started this blog as a way to document our travels & inspire others to get out there and create memories with their kids as well. I also love sharing recipes, fashion and other fun things I find online or out there in the world!!!
What I never anticipated was that I would meet tons of like-minded individuals and friends- that’s YOU! I love connecting with people who share my passions. So, I would be so honored if you would follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Let’s connect and get to know each other!!
Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my e-newsletter that way you will never miss a post or giveaway!!!

Meet the Team
As John Wooden once said, “If you want to go fast… go alone. If you want to go far, you need a team.”
Clearly in travel going far is really what it is all about. And, because I can’t be everywhere all of the time I have a fantastic team behind me.

Meet Danielle- East Coast Destination Editor
In 2014, Danielle took her first international trip to Europe. She was mesmerized by the sights, cultures, and people that she met along her adventure. She was so inspired that in 4 short months after her trip, she packed up her life into a suitcase and moved from Southern California to Washington, D.C. Since then, she has checked off 6 more countries and has loved experiencing East Coast life. Whether exploring local attractions near The District, going on a quick weekend getaway, or planning a long vacation, Danielle is always on the move.
Meet Kelsey- Photographer & Destination Editor
I’m a mother and wife first. Always. I lead a messy and adventurous little life in San Diego with my adorable husband, two boys and baby bean on-the-way. I love the beach, I love traveling, I love good coffee, and I love trader joes. I spent the better part of my 20’s living out of a rucksack and exploring over 50 countries. It was my greatest adventure until momdom and I fully blame my 20’s for my never-ending need for adventure today. You can find me at my happiest when I’m outdoors with my little family, camera and cider in hand.
