Birth of my new blog! Please stop by and say hello to…

“Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older and I’m getting older too…”
– Stevie Nicks, Landslide Lyrics

There is so much I could say in this post. Reflecting on 10 years since becoming a parent, figuring out how to grapple with motherhood and manage to stay afloat as a writer… and knowing I’ve got a good 10+ years or so ahead on this can be daunting.

But as you might expect, I’m packing up and getting ready for a new adventure instead. This time, it may involve cleaning a fish and cooking it over an open fire for dinner! Cross your fingers for me.

It’s been quite a year, as most of you know. Some friends have firmly asserted that I need to TAKE A BREAK. I think that they are right. Nevertheless, it’s been seven whopping months since I originally planned to bring this next blog online.

It happened. Today.

So before I head to the mountains, I want to give you an early preview of the new… FAMILY TRAVEL 411!



While will continue to serve up the tips, advice and inspiration it always has for travelers with children under 5, the new Family Travel 411 will go well beyond.

I’m so excited for the new venue, where I’ll be sharpening up my storytelling, photography, and… collaborating with some of my own favorite travel bloggers, writers, and photographers.

I hope you’ll come along for the ride. (Subscribe for updates with this link – thanks!)

In the mean time, thanks for taking a look at the new blog site! I would love to hear any feedback you have with a comment either here or there.

Next week, I’ll be kicking off a new giveaway, too… one that can be appreciated by readers of BOTH travel sites! And I’m so excited to hear from some of you who can join me at one of this summer’s author events. 😉

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and, as always… thank you so much for your support.

Safe journeys,
