I always thought it would be the coolest thing to just wake up in the morning, pick a random place on the map, and then just go. I would have a passport full of stamps and live out of a suitcase wearing the same pair of cut up jean shorts and long unwashed curly hair. Half my family would think I was crazy and the other half would say, wow that girl really knows how to live. But then reality hits me and I decide that there are these things called obligations. You know… jobs, family, two dogs and a cat. Oh yeah and money. Or should I say, lack there of. Because last I checked, Spanish moss is about all that grows on trees around here. But luckily for me, I have husband who likes to indulge me and recently told me to pick a section of the map (mind you this was a US map only, but still something) and he would take me and Liam there. So we picked Maine. And it was wonderful. Lobster rolls for days, wildflowers for as far as you can see, hiking for miles up cliffs, and boat tours to see puffins and seals. Liam broke out in a rash and had multiple poop explosions in the rental car and on the plane. But despite that, he was still the happiest little traveler and made every adventure so much more magical. Enjoy our video!

I read somewhere recently that traveling with loved ones is “home in motion.” This feels so true. I can’t wait to see where I will go next but I know as long as I have these two boys with me, it will be an adventure.
