Like I said in my last blog post, I love a good road trip! It’s a great opportunity to see more of the country and to make great memories! We have gone on road trips that were only a few hours long and some that took a few days to get to the last stop. […]

Road Trippin’ Tips

Some of my favorite childhood memories took place on road trips. Every summer, my dad would grab the newest Atlas, my Mom would pack our neon clothes (hello 90s!), and they’d lay down the backseats of our station wagon for another trip to remember.
