Travel Size Mom

My children (now 18 and 22) endowed me with this affectionate nickname years ago.  I am rather petite and the shortest of our immediate family.  And so travel size containers…. travel size Mom!

Why this blog?  Bottom line:  my family said you have to just start!  Just one word please!   I have had such grandiose ideas on topics about which to write:  dinner topics to keep life interesting and stimulating for family and friends, what to have for dinner, current affairs, country reports for travelers, finance for teens and on and on and on.     I plan outlines, I research, I agonize over how to come up with the perfect layout for a blog or website….But I never seem to be able to actually execute.  Food and travel topics seem to be the one thread that I keep coming back to – it is the subject I seem to have the most passion for and get the most excited about.

So I promised my son and daughter that I would just start.   And we will just go from here……


  1. Love it!!! Can't wait for Ciera to read your Blog, what a great way for them to learn about other countries through your first hand experiences

  2. This is such a great idea. It is wonderful to have a site that features all the things I love and how they come together: food, family, entertaining, stimulating discussion and travel. Can't wait to read more!

  3. Nobody write about what we should do if our Travel Goes Wrong. Your article of What To Do When Travel Goes Wrong must helps the visitor to make any right decision for traveling. All over You have wrote awesome tourist guide. Basically Ireland has a lot of attractive place for long journey.
