Prepping for International Travel with a Toddler

December 28, 2017

We head out next Tuesday to Mexico with my parents, brother and soon to be sister in law and we couldn’t be more excited! Despite Phoenix not necessarily being our home, we’ve been here for almost four months and it has definitely become our home base this last season. While we are beyond excited to establish our roots back in Brooklyn in two weeks, this vacation couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.


One Day in Phoenix with a Toddler

December 4, 2017

We’ve been visiting Phoenix since late September and will be here until just after the new year. It’s the city we lived in when we found out I was pregnant with Owen, it’s where Zack and I met in high school, where we got married and divorced and re-married, and where each of our families live. We’ve visited countless times in the last two years since Owen was born, but there’s something different about being here now that he’s officially in the toddler phase.

Watching Owen run through areas of Phoenix, a city that hold so much history for our little family, warms my heart beyond belief.


Ten Tips for a Healthy, Happy Family Road Trip

Last weekend we packed up the car with Wonderful Halos and all the other essentials for a road trip from Phoenix to Sedona. Since Owen has spent the majority of his life living in walkable cities we have experienced very few road trips as a family, but now that we have a couple under our belts I figured I would share our top ten tips for a healthy, happy family road trip. A lot of these tips I actually got from you guys so please continue to share your good choice moments in the comments below so we can keep this conversation going (and so you can enter to win a prize from Wonderful Halos)!


A Playlist for Procrastinating Packers

November 7, 2017

Not only are we heading to New Orleans tomorrow, but when we get back we will be switching our home base from my family to Zack’s so you can say I’m especially dragging my feet when it comes to getting our very few belongings organized. So much so that I thought it would be wise to make a playlist and share it with you here as motivation, haha. Enjoy!

The Leap to Travel Deepened our Connection as a Family

October 2, 2017

For our family, these last five months have truly deepened our connection. We have learned how to slow the heck down, live with less and not obsess about the future. Key word here is obsess, because regardless of the type-a in me slowly fading, there will always be a little bit of that version of myself tied up in my present.
