I am not a writer. But I am a storyteller. I write like I tell my stories. Very casually. I remember learning in English that what we were being taught was "the formal way of writing." I anxiously waited to learn about the "informal way" for years. So, I made it up myself. If the emotions can come across the computer screen and you enjoy what you are reading, I am happy.
Memories, not stuff...
As a child, I was never fond of the knick knacks or "things" that collected dust. But ask me to share a memory about my grandparents and you would quickly realize, those memories mean way more to me than some figurine on a shelf. I will share details that would make one believe that those events had just taken place, when in fact, my grandmother passed 17 years ago.
The trend I have been seeing as of the last few years is families really trying to do away with clutter and focusing on making memories with their families. Even moreso with the COVID outbreak and families being quarantined together. I hope this "trend" becomes the norm--- because I truly believe that memories will long last any material thing.
As a mom, creating memories with my children are just as important to me as raising them into loving, caring and responsible adults. As a travel planner, I love watching my clients create those memories with their own families. It's the BEST part of the job... besides the traveling ;)
Here, you will find stories about our ventures together---some far from home, others right in our own backyard :)
As a homeschooling mom who found that her children thrived more when living life together instead of being stuck in a classroom 8 hours a day, I turned my love of travel and educating my kids into the perfect mix: unschooling.
