REAL LIFE travel tips
& home struggle success
from a Wife & Mom
☕️ [It’s THE REAL DEAL, Mam] ☕️
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 to motivate wives to live life abundantly. I wrote my book, Guru Hacks for a Healthy Happy Home for that purpose. I’m thrilled to share the helpful things I’ve learned along the way to actually enjoy my home, family, and travel trips. Don’t miss my most popular posts at the very end!
I’m asked by Women all the time that are weary from planning failed vacations and then the dread of returning to a house of chaos:
- the best places to entertain older kids?
- how do you manage such an organized home?
- the best attractions in the South for 14-year olds?
- how do you keep up with all of the laundry?
- family vacation ideas with lots of options for olders?
- are there any safe movies we can watch as a family anymore?
- the best Southern resorts within walking distance to food & attractions?
- how do I begin to cook at home more when I don’t know where to start?
- the best family trips in the South for the money?
The How-to Guru, though?
The site name did not come about because I know-it-all. Nothing could be further from the truth! I just adore sharing tips, secrets, and hacks about how I’ve learned to lose the overwhelm, get things done, and enjoy it while you are doing it. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
I hope you are encouraged here!
Georgia born and raised, I’m the happiest when I am traveling or planning a trip. It fuels me ~ hence the reason I’m a Travel Journalist. I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to Europe and to over half of the beloved United States so far. Southern Family Travel is what I do and share. Check out this fun map of my U.S. travels:
