Before we scheduled our trip, I made the mistake of asking people about their experience with @legolandflorida. {Hosted} I was told that it was small and more fun for toddlers. They said my 10 and 14 year old wouldn't really enjoy it. Even though Falynn was ecstatic about it, I was honestly expecting to be disappointed. I will be the first to admit that I was VERY wrong. We all loved it! There was something for each of us to enjoy and all three of my girls can't wait to go back! Our first trip to Legoland will definitely not be our last. Today on the blog, I’m talking about why we loved it even more than Disney! You can read all about it by clicking the link in our bio or swiping up in stories. .

Before we scheduled our trip,...

Imagine being in your home, taking care of your baby and suddenly being ordered to leave. Imagine being told you could take only one small bag and everything else would be seized. Imagine being packed into a cattle car for days with no food or water or even room to move. Just a bucket in the corner, to be used as a bathroom and a tiny window for ventilation. Imagine people dying on that cattle car, right next to you. Imagine arriving at a concentration camp and immediately having your baby torn from your arms. Imagine having a number tattooed on your arm, to be used as your “identification”. Imagine finding out your Mother, husband and baby were killed for no reason at all,  aside from the fact that they were Jewish. No, this isn’t fiction. This is what it was like for my Auntie Rose and millions of other Jews during the Holocaust. Today on the blog, I’m talking about how it affected my family, both the survivors and those that were taken from us because they were too young, too old, too sick or too weak to work. January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let’s use this day as a day to reflect on what happened, and remind ourselves that people are people, regardless of their religion, race, or beliefs and we should all treat each other with respect. Never again. .

After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

This post is sponsored by Firestone Complete Auto Care but all opinions are my own.

Thinking back to all the trips that I took as a child, the road trips with my grandparents were always my favorite.  Whether we were driving up the east coast, or just a few hours away, each minute spent in the car and sightseeing were so memorable.  I knew that when I had a family of my own, I was going to make sure to give my kids that same experience.  And while there are always lots of “are we there yet”s and more rest stops than I can count, I know that the memories we make will last a lifetime.

Road Trips Done Right

Earlier this year, we took a road trip from Florida to Georgia and back.  It was a week we will never forget.  We loved the experience so much, we started planning our next road trip before we made it back home.

Safety First

Before we head out on any road trip, we always make sure that our car is in perfect shape.  Whether it be the oil, the tires or the breaks, when you’re driving long distances, there is nothing more important than making sure you and your family are safe. For this reason, we rely on Firestone Complete Auto Care.  Firestone Complete Auto Care backs all of their work with a Triple Promise that guarantees your experience will be Fixed Right, Priced Right, and Right on Time. Their 4,000+ hardworking and trustworthy ASE-certified technicians keep your car running newer, longer since 1926.  I trust them with my car and with my family’s safety.

Prepare for the Journey

Each of us are different. We have a variety of things that we love to do when we have free time.  So we make sure to give the girls each a backpack and have them fill it with things to keep them busy while we’re on the road.  The contents of those backpacks range from headphones, coloring books and crayons, journals, drawing pads and playing cards to stuffed animals.  They always make sure to leave some space in those bags for souvenirs from each of the places we go and every adventure we have.

Stray From the Itinerary

We try to plan things out for each of our road trips, but some of my favorite experiences are those that were spontaneous.  When you’re on a road trip, and you see a sign for something on the side of the road, don’t be afraid to pull over. It’s those little gems that you didn’t know about that turn out to be the most memorable.  For us, one of those places was St. Augustine Alligator Farm.  We live in Florida, so we aren’t strangers to alligators. In fact, we occasionally have them in our backyard.  Going to an alligator farm wasn’t at the top of our list but we decided to take a detour and visit the alligator farm and the girls had an absolute blast.  Had we stuck to our plans, they would’ve missed out.  One of the things we love to do is ask for local treasures at the front desk of the hotel we are staying at. You can also reach out to the local visitors bureau for each city and they will be happy to share their top tourist spots.

Capture Every Moment

Photography is something I truly love.  There is something so special about being able to capture a moment and look back on it.  Whether it’s on your phone, or with a camera, make sure to capture every memorable moment (especially the ones that aren’t posed).  I love to sit back and let my family explore and have fun.  Allowing them to live in the moment, gives me the opportunity to capture it for them.  Once we get back home, I’ll print my favorites or create a photo book filled with photos of the trip.  The girls love to pull those photos and books out every now and then and relive the trip.  Each photo sparks a memory and I find them sharing stories that I know they’ll be sharing as they grow up.

Plan as a Family

No matter where you go, or what you do, make sure you are enjoying your family.  We find that road trips always bring us closer.  Being confined to a car for hours on end, gives us more of an opportunity to connect.  Planning a road trip is not something that is done by just one of us. It’s a family affair where each of us gets to give our suggestions and choose places to stop and things to do. Allowing our kids to help us plan our trips gets them just a little bit more excited about each stop.  The look in their eyes when they see us enjoying their part of the trip is a sight I’ll never get tired of.

Relax

You don’t have to be out and about all the time to have fun.  Dedicate some of your time to relaxing.  My family loves the water, so give them a pool or a beach and they can spend hours having the time of their lives.  Don’t be afraid to enjoy your downtime.  Find a hotel that offers the on-site amenities that work for your family and take advantage of them.

We can’t wait for our next road trip this Summer and can’t wait to show you all of the fun places we will be headed.  Have you recently taken a family road trip? Comment below and share your favorite road trip memories.

    One of my favorite road trips to take is to St. Augustine and have never been to the Alligator Farm (my fear runs deep!) I love planning for trips almost as much as I do taking them.

    Road trips do take some planning, and great organization. We have taken quite a few road trips with our children over the years and you have pretty much pointed out the key components!

    I don’t live in the States at the moment but I dream of taking a road trip up to the New England area during autumn so we can go leaf peeping. You have some great tips here to make it a fun trip instead of stressful.

    These are wonderful tips. I’ve learned that planning our trips as a family just makes things so much easier especially with teens.

    We love going on road trips. There is so much to explore in this country that flying misses. I love when we don’t have much of an itinerary and sort of just stop along the way! It is a fun way to go.

    I love road trips with my husband and soon enough we will have a son to go on road trips too!! And all of a sudden I got randomly excited.

    We just returned from a road trip. The car inspection to make sure everything was okay came first. We planned where would stay and many other things. It turned really hot the last couple of days so we changed it up to include more inside things to see and do. Had a blast.
