Okay, we've all been warned to be careful when traveling. And if you say you are traveling to Italy, you will be warned of pick pocketers. And they are right! The pick pocketers are professionals. It's very calculated and if they see an opportunity to take it, they will.
The good news: violent crime is pretty unlikely. We felt safe physically most of the time. We were told to avoid "down by the River in Rome" by an American living in Rome. We looke ...

It’s a Wonderful Life in Clermont
Thank you so much to my friend, Tonya at Detail Oriented Traveler and the Moonlight Players Theatre in Clermont for inviting me to their show, It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play.
I know what you may be thinking, a radio style show of an old movie - sounds kinda, dare we say, maybe, boring? I had high hopes for this show and 100% trusted my fellow blogging friend, Tonya, when she said the show would be wonderful. But I could completely understand how others may look at this show and wonder - will I like it?
Well, let me tell you what I thought. I LOVED this show. I've attended all kinds of shows from high sc ...

Grocery Delivery with Prime Now
When you're traveling, sometimes you don't have a car or don't have time to grocery shop. An excellent way to save money, time and energy is to use a grocery delivery service. Grocery shopping isn't my favorite hobby anyway, so I'm especially interested in skipping this while I'm on vacation. I also always want some basics and at the price I'm used to paying ($5 for a pack of water not 1 bottle). When you shop for your groceries this way, you can shop from the comfort of your beach chair or while you're waiting to ride Flight of Passage and have water bottles back at your hotel waiting for you when you get there. You're sold on this, right? R ...

For Disney Vacations
The first Disney Vacation I planned as an adult was OVERWHELMING for me! So much had changed since the last time I had gone when I was around 18 years old with my parents. When I was a child, we went just about every year and I knew a lot about Disney Parks. Back then, you walked up and got paper fast passes when they started offering them and it was pretty easy to eat wherever you wanted to. Fast forward 10 years and there was SO much about Fast ...

Babywearing at Walt Disney World
What if I told you that you could ride rides, hold your toddler’s hand and eat a Dole Whip (with probably none of it spilling on your baby’s head) all while holding your baby? You’d say sign me up, right?! Well I have to say babywearing has been the most magical tool I’ve had. It’s probably my favorite parenting tool overall but definitely while traveling and at Disney. Here are a few tips on babywearing while at an amusement park like Walt Disney World.
1. Find a carrier that works for you and your baby. The best way to do that is to find a local group although they are more difficult to find now that the non-profit Babywearing Internatio ...

Dear Daughter, Why We Travel
I want you to know why I take you on trips like to Disney World, even though you’re just a baby, a toddler, a little one. People tell me, “She won’t remember. It’s not worth it, save your money.” Even I’ve wondered if it’s worth the time, energy and money. But here’s what matters: we will remember. You, your dad and I will all remember how we felt together. Your dad and I will remember vividly the happy, hoarse screech you do when you see Cinderella’s Castle, Mickey Mouse and all of your favorite rides. We will even have pictures to help you remember. And there are so many more reasons that we take you with us when we travel ...
