If you have come into contact with me for the past two years then you may already know my life dream is to move to France for a year. I think I have told our mailman, everyone at Liv’s French school and even total strangers who humor me with a smile while I crazily go on and on… Continue reading A Dream is a wish your heart makes
I still can’t believe we went to the most beautiful country in the world. Last spring I heard of an airline called Wow Airlines. They were starting nonstop service from LAX to Reykjavik and there was a special sale in October for $99 one way fares. The dates happen to synch with Olivia’s school October… Continue reading Wow! Our Trip to Iceland

Olivia definitely has gotten… Continue reading Less Plastic, more experiences!

I must say, The Goonies is the perfect kid’s flick, a treasure hunt, pirates and Cyndi Lauper! Liv has inherited my good taste in cinema. I told her about the city where the… Continue reading Day trip to Astoria, Oregon

I am trying to stay uber-organized because this is the longest trip we’ve taken so I am packing our entire lives.… Continue reading Pack Rat
Last time we went to London was in 2003. We were there for only four days. I didn’t have an itinerary planned so we just winged it and did all the usual tourist things. We used a travel agency *I’m surprised they are still around* to book our trip so we stayed at a corporate… Continue reading London Calling
