Hey there, Lauren here! Thank you for taking the time to stop by. I am a normal wife, mom, friend, co-worker just like you. I have developed a passion for photography and seeing new places. I am not a full time traveler (yet). I use all of my vacation and holiday time to explore and experience everything I can.
This journey started last year when our family took our first cross country road trip. I had been to a few states and a few major cities, but had never seen most of the country. I became inspired by the difference in the landscapes I was passing by and realized just how much I was missing. I had always dreamed of traveling to Paris, or Rome or even to see the Great Wall …. but I never realized that there was so much to see or experience in my own country. I started taking pictures with my iPhone and the rest is history.
When I got home I started writing down places I had never been, things I’d never done, and built a bucket list that eventually sparked the idea for this website. I wanted to be able to share my experiences. Now I travel every chance I get. Life is no longer about working to pay the bills. It’s about not wasting another second on stuff, and instead experiencing everything this world has to offer.
If you are looking for a blog that shows you models sipping champagne on yachts you are probably in the wrong place. Not that there is anything wrong with that, and not that we won’t do that at some point, that’s just not what we do normally. You can expect to see destinations for you next vacation. Places to stay and what to do while you are there. Things that the normal person can afford, or save up for. If any of that sounds like it’s up your alley, then you are definitely in the right place.
As a family we had decided that it wasn’t fair to our own country to travel overseas before we’d seen everything the United States had to offer. Before we left on that first cross country road trip I had been to 6 states, 4 major cities, and had only been to one national park. Now after just four road trips in a year, I’ve been to 42/50 of the states in the US. I’ve also been to 25 major cities, and 22 National Parks! I am so excited to share these experiences with you, and for what’s next. Our Family hopes to start taking our trips overseas very soon.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and read my content. I know there is so much out there that you could be reading right now. Your follow means the world to me.
