Who nominated me?

Thank you Aimee at StandTallMama for your nomination! I’m still in awe that people, beside my friends and family, actually read my little blog and feel so blessed to be recognized!

Aimee is also a travel blogger, but from a completely different perspective than me, both literally and figuratively. As the 6 foot tall mom of 2 boys she shares her travel adventures and I would encourage everyone to check out her blog!

My Favorite Blog

I have a love for many things, but definitely one of the greatest is my love of travel. So when I discovered Madison at Broke, Wild & Traveling I was hooked! To be so young and already being able to see so much of the world is an amazing opportunity and I have enjoyed following her travels. She has great pictures of unique locations and I would encourage anyone who loves traveling as much as I do to check her out!


1. What is the best memory you have experienced while traveling?
One of the best memories I have is climbing to the top of Diamond Head while in Hawaii. Something I had looked forward to for a very long time.

2. What is the most exciting thing that has happened to your blog since starting it?
It may seem silly, but the most exciting thing for me has been seeing the views that I have received from other countries. I’m just a small town girl so it amazes me that someone
in Nigeria or Ireland would ever look at my tiny blog!

3. What was the inspiration for the name of your blog?
I combined two of my biggest loves, my husband and traveling. Plus, he is just a good sport to go along with whatever crazy idea I have it just seemed appropriate.

4. What is one of your favorite parts of being a mom?
Watching my kids grow into great adults has been a huge joy in my life.

5. If you had one superpower what would it be and why?
Hard one, but I guess to time travel, so I could see different places and times.

6. What is the one post made by you that you like the most and why?
Have Passport, Will Travel is the most personal post I have written, I cried a lot writing it, so it is probably my favorite.

7. What inspired you to start your blog?
Not a what, but a who. My friend Betty told me she thought I should try it and I honestly had never considered it before. Now here we are!

8. Summer or winter?
Summer for sure!

9. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
My family. Those that are with me now and those that shaped my life but are no longer here.

10. What is your favorite dish?
So many to choose from, but probably spaghetti and meatballs.
