Arches National Park #PSF

Arches National Park

  I am finally home for good from my summer of traveling. I miss it. I miss being on the road and having daily adventures. I miss the chance to be with my kids – no distractions (because, let’s face it…most of the remote locations we visited did not have great cell phone coverage, and […]

Summer Memories #PSF

We had the best night tonight with #Maryland friends out in #Utah. Love these guys!

  I have been away from home more than I’ve been home since mid June….and I’m gone again this week. Since I don’t have all of my vacation photos on my little travel Chromebook, I decided to share a few of my favorite somewhat random Instagram photos from our travels. What have you been up […]

Madame Tussauds DC #PSF

madame tussauds dc

  I have to start off by saying that this week has taken a lot out of me. I am sitting down to write this post with hardly an ounce of energy left in me. So don’t mistake my lack of words in this post to mean that I didn’t have a blast with my […]

Four Corners Monument: What You Need To Know Before Visiting #PSF

Four Corners Monument

  One of the most anticipated stops on our road trip from the East Coast to the West was the Four Corners Monument, but there are definitely a few things I would have liked to know about visiting before we made the trek out there. Four Corners is the only place in the United States […]

Heading Home…Finally! #PSF


  After 25 days of being on the road, we are finally on the final stretch of our journey back home. We’re heading home! We’ve had so much fun this summer that it’s hard to want to go home…but there’s something special about home. My own bed. My own computer. My own refrigerator (no more […]

Cousin Time #PSF


  The kids have been loving the time they’ve had with their cousins this week at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Like last summer, when all 16 of us were living under one roof for the summer, the house is kind of chaotic, but it’s a good chaos. Between the water park and the hot tub […]

Views From The Passenger Seat #PSF


  If you’re following me on Instagram, Facebook, or twitter, you’ve probably noticed the road trip pictures I’ve been posting for the last 2 weeks. Some of my favorite shots were photos that I captured from the passenger seat. I saw the most incredible, awe-inspiring views from the passenger seat. (Yes, I saw lots of […]

The Beach Days of Summer #PSF


  There’s something relaxing and rejuvenating about spending a couple of days at the beach…even if the visit is short. Since our stop in Florida this week was a quick one as we start off our summer of travel, we tried to fit as much in as possible during our stay. I had to laugh […]

Wendella Boat Tour of Chicago’s Architecture #PSF

Wendella Chicago's Original Architecture Tour

  When I was in Chicago a little over a week ago for my sister’s wedding, my family took a little tourist break. Here are a few of the photos I took with my phone of Chicago’s Original Architecture Tour® with Wendella. About Chicago’s Original Architecture Tour®: Departing from the Wendella Dock at Trump Tower, […]

My Sister’s Wedding #PSF


  This past weekend, I met my parents and all 4 of my siblings in Chicago for my sister’s wedding. It was a busy weekend, but one that I will remember and treasure for years. It has been too long since all 5 of the siblings were together at the same time (we usually meet […]
