Peru with G Adventures I

I have been building this blog post in my head since the start of our trip – I sure hope it meets your expectations πŸ˜‰ And this is where memory + lack of notes fail me. This was on our way to Parwa in the Sacred Valley full day 1 where I was going on 3 … Read more

My Favorite Instagram Accounts

I love “IG” more than I love Facebook – I like the lack of words, which is pretty funny for a “talker”. But isn’t the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words”. The more I think about it the more I am sure it’s because of my hashtag obsession. It gives me a sense … Read more

Congratulations on your engagement! This starts such an exciting, albeit tiring/exhilarating time of your life!

And the list making begins!

As we start to focus on our upcoming family trip to Paris and Provence, I’m documenting the process the entire way!  Finding blogs specific to traveling with babies under a year is not easy.
