Must Haves For Traveling With Baby

We leave for Disneyland is less than a month! I’m going a little crazy because, well, total Disney mom right here! There is so much to think through! So much to be excited for! I’m crazy with anticipation and crazy with a healthy dose of worry too. I’ve traveled with Reid … a road trip to the beach […]

Visiting Yellowstone With Kids

1994. My first trip to Yellowstone. I had just finished 1st grade and was greatly anticipating our adventure to a new part of the country. My parents, grandma, almost 5 year old sister and newly turned 2 year old sister were all coming along in our ancient Suburban. We dubbed that beast the “Zoo-burban” because […]

Portland Eats

Did you know I lived in Portland for almost 7 years? It’s where I went to college and where Dominic and I met. Jemma was even born there! Portland will always hold a special place in my heart – for many reasons – one such reason being the fabulous food! Around every corner, Portland boasts […]
