This summer has been nonstop, and I’m happy to say that much of it is due to my growing niche of travel blogging! I love finding business collaborations so we can review hotels, places to play and other destinations for kids (or a parents night out!). Here’s a look at what I’ve done so far in this niche. I’d love to do more.
Earlier this month, two gal pals and I left our collective assortment of tiny humans with the husbands and the grandparents and lived it up at the Broadlind Hotel’s penthouse suite in Long Beach, California. Overall, the property is a truly charming getaway with all the architectural character I love, situated in a conveniently walkable downtown location.
This summer, there will be 134 foreign exchange students looking for host families in the North County from China, France, Hong Kong & Italy for two to three weeks between July 19 and Aug. 13.
We were recently #hosted by the brand new Cava Robles RV Resort in Paso Robles, California. And, you guys, we…
Here’s our review of taking kids to The Ravine Waterpark in Paso Robles.
As a SLO CAL Storyteller, the region’s tourism district will be arranging monthly adventures for us to try out along California’s awesome Central Coast. This ranges in anything from water excursions and horseback riding to nature tours in the backcountry expanses of our region.

My wish for my children is that they always find friendship in each other. That they find joy and creativity in play. And that they each have their own comfortable space. These words are inspired by our newest collab compliments of DockATot.
I received two DockATot Grand Docks in the oh-so-chic Bananas For You print in exchange for our honest review.
Here is a guest post I contributed this summer to Paso Robles’ official tourism website, TravelPaso.com:
When most people talk about their quintessential summer, I often hear about relaxing poolside getaways. But when I think about my own perfect summer staple – it’s all about Paso’s Concerts in the Park.
Cayucos Beach is one of our faves for taking little kids to the beach because it has free parking, public bathrooms, an outside shower spout for rinsing off, lifeguard towers and …. it also has a playground right on the sand!
Centennial Trail is a roughly 1 mile stretch of flat, paved pathway from Lana Street to Mohawk Court on the city’s east side. The trail is stroller-friendly and completely off-road. The trail also features a seasonal creek, a canopy of beautiful twisty oaks and spots to see deer. The trail is popular with joggers and dog walkers, but we like to buddy up when venturing anywhere off-road or out of view of others.
