A Perfect Saturday

It sounds exciting — traveling for a year, visiting 12 cities, spending a month in each location. Imagine the place you will go, the people you’ll meet, and the coffee you’ll enjoy.  Yes, that is all true, but the adventure happens mixed within the routine…

London with Kids

We did a ton of research on what to do with Nolan while in London.  Things to see and do that would be appropriate for him and that he would enjoy. In case anyone ever asks me, hey, what would you recommend for kids in…
