Born and raised just outside of Pittsburgh, I escaped to the Florida sun soon after college. I always thought Florida was just a “stop off” on my way to the place I’d live forever. Ten years later, I’m still here and I can’t ever imagine leaving my sandy beaches and swaying palm trees.
I’m known as Mom to Mia and Charli (8 and 3 1/2 years) and Amanda (not step-mom… that sounds like Cinderella) to a lovely young lady named Madi (14). I’m known as “love of my life” to an amazing man named, who likes to be shielded from the papparazzi unlike myself.
I spent eight years in travel and leisure publicity working with international hotel and destination clients. My first love will always be travel and I feel fortunate to be able to share our family travel adventures on this blog.
I am the director of marketing communications at Produce for Kids (where I also blog). I am truly passionate about helping parents find ways to incorporate fruits and veggies into their daily routine.
My most valuable experience… mom of two girls.
In my spare time, I take ballet classes, swim, paddleboard, read, tweet, travel, cook and shop.
Browse around and leave a comment. I love new friends! If you want to send me a post idea or if you have questions about a travel deal – email me. I’m always happy to entertain guest blogger opportunities, host giveaways, promote great travel destinations and give product recognition when recognition is due.
I look forward to hearing from you!
