As the school-year draws to a close, and you begin prepping for your summertime family travel adventures, we wanted to provide you with some resources, information, tips, deals and more with the launch of I Love Family Travel’s The Summer of Family Travel series. There will be posts throughout the summer, all focusing on family travel.
To celebrate the launch, we’ve teamed up with the ILFT crew, Bloggin’ Mamas and a whole bunch of traveling bloggers, to bring you a #FamilyTravelChat and a huge Giveaway!
We held our chat on Twitter Thursday, 5/19/16 at 9p ET about summer vacation plans and deals, travel gear and more![more ...]
This post has been a long time coming. I get asked quite frequently about what a new mom of twins “really” needs, and I finally decided I better just sit down and write this thing so I can direct people here instead of typing out a marathon page of answers on Facebook. Luckily, I’ve also found some fellow twin moms through my blogging journey who also wanted to give their two cents, so you’ll get to hear from a variety of us! Not all of us breastfed or participate in attachment parenting or think the only way to go is disposables.[more ...]

I’ve been reading a lot of convicting posts floating around the interwebs lately about taking time to stop and smell the roses. I find this to be especially important for me in this season of my life. With the girls about to start kindergarten in the fall, I really want to savor this last summer at home with them. While the activities and events we have planned for this summer won’t keep us nearly as busy as the impending school year, I still have to prioritize and plan for the activities we will be taking part in this summer.
One of my biggest struggles as a busy mom is taking care of myself (if you’ve been following me on SnapChat

Now that I have a family of my own, I want to make similar summer memories albeit without all the picking up and moving! One day, when the girls are much
older, we plan to embark on the “Great American Road Trip” on Route 66, but, for now, driving 8 hours to visit everyone’s favorite Mouse is enough of a road trip for us.[more ...]

Summer is fast approaching, and, here in the south, that means temperatures are quickly headed from spring-like and lovely to unbearably miserable. I don’t know about you, but I really dislike a prolonged beauty routine in the summertime because the heat and humidity are going to ruin it by noon. Over the years, I’ve developed a quicker morning routine for the summer, especially when it comes to my hair, because, let’s be real, nothing is more frustrating than spending your time drying, brushing, and straightening your hair only to have it frizz up at soon as you walk out the door.[more ...]
