My parents took me on countless vacations as a child. From Hawaii to the Outer Banks, I didn't realize how much I had traveled until I was an adult.
After having my first baby in 2015, it seemed right to continue to share my love of travel.
With a Bachelor's degree in Human Development and Family Science, you'd think raising babies would come easy – but it's been a roller coaster like so many moms experience.
Most of what I share comes from personal experience traveling with 1, 3 (twins,) and now 4 kids.
Beaches and coastal regions are our preferred vacation spots with the kids. With our home base in Ohio, our vacation expertise is in the east coast and southern states.
While we travel regularly, it's not always pretty. But we love looking back on the memories we've made.

mistakes experiences and enjoy traveling with your kids!
- We have a boat – or 2 – and frequent the Lake Erie shores and islands all summer
- I believe in Disney magic, pixie dust and finding all the hidden Mickeys
- I'm an obsessive researcher – I won't rest until I have all the answers to make a decision (or purchase!)
- I have an amazing husband and our 4 kids were all born through IVF
- Being a mom has always been my dream, but I never imagined it would be this hard
