A Kid-Free Weekend

In January, Seano and I took our first kid-free vacation since N was born more than three years ago. We spent a long weekend in San Diego. It was absolutely amazing. Like, rejuvenating, thrilling, out-of-this world amazing. And not because we did anything spectacular or went somewhere new. But, because it was the first time in more than three years Continue reading

An Unforgettable Girlfriends Anniversary

I have been surrounded by amazing women for pretty much my entire life. I can look back at a specific window of my lifetime and name at least a handful of ladies that have significantly influenced my life and from each time frame I’ve stayed in touch with at least one of them.

I just miss them both when I have to be away.

Most often I try to Continue reading

Why We WILL Travel With Our Children

April was a busy, busy month for us. N and I had a trip planned to Burbank for a long weekend, we had a family trip to Savannah for a week, and we bought and sold a house. I think I was in survival mode there for a bit.

Anyway, a couple of days before N and my trip to Burbank, I read this article on CNN How Young Is Too Young To Travel? I love CNN, but this article fired me up. Maybe it hit home because N and I were getting ready to take our first solo plane trip; if I really want to travel it will be with a child; or I traveled so much as a kiddo and I believe it deeply impacted me.
