3000 Miles in 25 days

I just completed 3000 miles with my 4 young children in tow.  I had planned to spend 23 days and cover 2300 miles, but plans changed when I added in an epic surprise at the end of the trip!  We added 2 extra days and a few extra miles that were well worth it!

Have you ever thought about driving with your kids somewhere, but don’t know where to start?  Or are you too scared to attempt the drive solo, leaving your partner behind to work?  Adventure doesn’t wait for anyone.  If we sat around waiting for my husband to take off, we would be waiting forever – and take very short trips.  Continue reading “3000 Miles in 25 days”

One Epic Adventure



I’m in the middle of a 2300 mile 23 day epic adventure with the 4 kids from DC to FL and back!   As you can see from the picture, we are exploring great things, and learning as we go.

Read more about how this adventure came about HERE.

We are not quite half-way through our miles, but about 13 days in to the 23-24 day quest.  We have coined new terms, such as ‘Ready Golf’ (who ever is ready first puts first) and ‘Soup Sandwich’ (this day is about as messy as a soup sandwich!).  We have sung at the top of our lungs and jumped on hotel beds.  We have dyed our hair mermaid pink.  We have stopped at museums, aquariums, zoos, gardens, beaches, ice-cream shops, restaurants, and tourist traps a long the way.  (A full list of exact places will be updated soon.)  We have not missed one possession left at home…

And I have an EPIC SURPRISE planned for the end of next week.

You’ll see.  Make sure you follow us on social media to watch us LIVE.  You’ll want to see this play out in real time.

My husband just spent 5 days with us at the beach before heading home to work.  I’m pretty sure he took my heart with him on that plane.  My 2.5 year old and I just sat on the floor and cried together when he left.  Then I told him he could cannonball naked into the pool – so the fun ran on.

As I sit here typing, thinking about all of the great opportunities blogging for others has created for me, I am so excited to finally be writing THIS.  I love every piece I have ever published (HUNDREDS OF THEM), but there’s something about putting yourself out there. It may be the wine talking, but I’m so happy you are here.

I hope you are enjoying a glass of wine along with me (I mean, the kids have been asleep for hours already.)
