Hi, friend and welcome! I’m so glad YOU are here with me, the How-to Guru. Yep, that’s me with the wind-swept hair and life.
You know how you cringe at the thought of planning another trip that’ll end up fun for everyone except YOU, and then you dread coming back to the stress & chaos of home?! Don’t you also feel like you can never get a handle on the laundry, cooking, and cleaning? Oh yeah, and then somehow find time to pay attention to the husband that’s supposed to be loved and cherished?
I love motivating busy women with hope and hacks for the best Family Travel, Wifey Life, and easy Southern Recipes. Here you’ll find stress-free travel tips & “how-to” create a peaceful, efficient haven to come home to!

Married to Superman ~ an intimidating Michael Chiklis look-alike who is great at anything he does with a commanding presence that makes everyone feel safe. His nickname suits him well since he can always save the day.
Mom to Captain America ~ a fitness lover & adrenaline junkie who loves travel and adventure and whose nickname was penned by friends as he left for Army boot camp. He found his bride for life and was recently married to the girl I have prayed for all of his life.
Mom to Princess ~ a prissy, tomboy with an incredible servant’s heart who is captivated by adoption, adventure, fashion, fast-pitch softball, country life, playing the piano, volleyball, and State Troopers. She’s amazingly diverse.
Mother-in-law to E ~ a God-loving & adventure-seeking darling woman that the Lord made just for Captain. She fits right into our craziness.
My Cup Runneth Over!
My heart is motivating wives to live life abundantly. I wrote my book, Guru Hacks for a Healthy Happy Home for that purpose. I used to be that stressed-out wife that couldn’t seem to get it together, and I still do some days. Then I remember the hope and hacks that I’ve hidden in my back pocket as an, ahem, older wifey.
I’m thrilled to share the helpful things I’ve learned along the way to actually enjoy my husband, home, family, and travel trips. This is a no-judge, wifey zone, and community for women to encourage each other as well. Just in here or on my social media and help each other out because we’re all in this together!
How the Guru got her name?
It wasn’t because I know-it-all. Nothing could be further from the truth! I just adore sharing tutorials on what I’ve learned as a Wife, Homemaker, and family travel writer. I’m just a Jesus-loving, life-long learner. I hope you are encouraged here!

I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to Europe and half of the states so far. Southern Family Travel is what I do and share. Check out this fun map of my U.S. travels:
