Another begins. These are my children and they are all adults now. Sniff. I was a VERY young mom and a single mom for most of their childhood. Amid work, housework, laundry, sports practice, sports games, cheerleading etc etc, I would dream of a world unseen. I, eventually, remarried and we blended our families together. I’ll never forget the shock and despair that I felt when our home was empty. I remember telling my husband that,” I had always been a mom and what was I without that identity?” My oldest son said,” Mom, now it’s your time! Go travel like you always wanted to but could never afford to do!” As I have begun to travel, I am learning that exploring the world does not have to be expensive. I want to help other people explore our beautiful world, by sharing pointers and tips that I use! I wish I would’ve known these vacation “hacks” earlier, so I would’ve been able to start traveling earlier! I hope you’ll join me as I go.
If you look like your passport photo, you probably need the trip! -Unknown
This is so wonderful Amanda. Thank you for doing this and sharing this part of your life with us. I am looking forward to more. I have always wanted to travel but money sometimes is the biggest issue for me, so I will take any tips that you may have. 🙂
Thank you so much for the support!
I am so excited to follow and read your post. David and I are both dreamers of wanting to travel the world and experience all the different cultures of the world. You are so infectious with a huge warming heart and beautiful personality.
Awww thank you Gabrielle! I appreciate your support!
This is great! I’m so excited for you and your next chapter. I’m starting to feel this way too with it being Daijas last year. Soon, for the first time in 20+ years I’ll be able to do what I want to do?! It’s hard to wrap my head around. I look forward to more of your posts! <3
Thank you so much for the support! It is a bit of an identity crisis right?
You should be proud of your family. Like you I have five grown up children and my nest seems very empty. I would like to join you for the next chapter.
I totally understand how you feel. It’s such a bittersweet time. I am so proud of them but i miss them so much!
So happy to see a mom of these beautiful grownup kids travel the world, live her life as she wanted with the families support. This is really inspiring!
Awww thank you! I have the best husband and kids! I’m so lucky!
You have a beautiful family, once a mom always a mom.I share your sentiments. I will be looking forward to your next post.
Awww thank you!
