As I’m sure you’ve guessed by the name of my site- I’m a single mom. I am 35; my kids are 18, 15, 9, and 7. I have a deep love of traveling. Alone, with family or friends, mainly with my herd of children. I am a huge fan of having my feet on the ground in a new place. Being present, taking in everything I can: sights, sounds, smells. I prefer experiences over material things and in the last few years have really pared down our physical items to reflect that. Honestly, if you don’t have a huge travel budget but you are still looking for a way to incorporate more trips into your life- or activities into your trips- have a garage sale. Unload some stuff on eBay. Things are just that: things. Memories cannot be replaced.
Kids remember a lot of things, even when you think they don’t. My youngest son frequently recalls a trip we took to Tennessee when he was three years old and he still talks about it to this day. He’s only seven, and while that does not seem like a very long time, to a child that has no conscious grasp of how long time actually is, a 4 year period is a whole lot like forever.
I hope you’ll come along with us as we live, laugh, and learn new things together.
