I am totally new to blogging, but finally decided I may have something worth sharing. I am not into telling anyone with internet access about my personal life, but I was thinking about all the places I have been in my short life and all the trips we have taken as a family and thought that by sharing about these places I may in some way educate and inspire others to visit where we have gone or venture into new places they desire to see and experience. My husband and I have 4 children. The oldest is 7, the second one is 4 and the youngest two are 2 months old. Our 7 year old has already been to 26 states, our 4 year old has been to 25 and our 2 mo old twins have been to 3. I have travelled to 32 states, plus Canada, Scotland, England & France. Evan, my husband, has been to 34 states, plus Mexico, Canada, Scotland, England and France. Our family is committed to travel and we sacrifice in other areas of our budget so we can afford to take an extended family vacation each year as well as day trips in our area. We live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and when we moved here 5 years ago one of the perks was that it meant we would be 2 1/2 - 3 hours from places like Philly, Baltimore, DC & the Norfolk/Hampton area.
To give you a little more info about this season of my life:
1. I work part-time as church secretary.
2. I work one day a week doing accounting.
3. I am a full-time mom.
4. I am homeschooling a 2nd grader & Kindergartener this year.
5. I just had a set of boy/girl twins.
6. We just purchased a 12 passenger van, so we can fit our 4 children and all of their accessories when we travel, as well as other passengers.
7. My husband and I just celebrated 10 years of marriage. (We met in college and travelled together in the University Chorale and in singing teams throughout the eastern United States.)

My goal with this blog is to share about the places we have visited in our journeys. Why don't you come along for the ride!

Wow, Julia! We have a lot in common! Did you know that Eric and I homeschool as well? Lukas will be in second grade, and Ava is pre-K age. We also love to travel, so I'll be looking forward to reading what you have to write about. I love blogging and reading other blogs. I'll definitely stop by again!
