Travel Blog

This travel blog is something I’ve wanted to launch for several years. As a busy mom of three and full-time editor of Carolina Parent and, finding the time to organize, research and write engaging and informative posts hasn’t been easy. But now, as my husband and I prepare to send our second oldest off to college, I’ll have only one child at home and a little more time to write about the places I’ve been lucky enough to visit. Here are my first few posts.
