We’ve been in Amsterdam for five days now and the jetlag is slowly getting less pronounced. Each day has followed a similar pattern of waking, abruptly, at some point in the wee hours of the morning to convince our little one to at least wait for the sun to get up before getting out of […]

Mary’s Law

April 6, 2017

“When you travel, there really are no mistakes – just learning opportunities” – Mary Casanova I’ve said it before, travel days can be tough. Traveling with a toddler can make it tougher.

August 23, 2014

On International Happy Day I wrote with excitement about the fact that Adam and I were going to be visiting the top happiest places in the world. Denmark holding the number 1 spot. After spending a mere four days in Denmark I think I’ve figured it out. The key to happiness and why Denmark has […]
