I’m so excited to announce that I am on an episode of This Indulgent Life, the Podcast!  I spent an hour talking to Mary all about our annual Big Trip and could have kept talking all day long.  I just love to talk about our trips. ?

Pin it to spread the word all about our crazy Big Trips!

For 13 years I have driven my minivan full of children across the United States in our annual Big Trip summer road trip. Highways and back roads alike, looping our way around America, seeing everything we can each year. Listen to my interview with This Indulgent Life to hear my secrets, successes, and failures of family road trip travels that have been gathered on the road.

  2. I just discovered your blog and can’t wait to listen to the podcast. My husband and I are empty-nesters but like to travel with our nephews and niece (ages 16, 14, and 7). We like to give them experiences rather than just more stuff.

  3. I loved reminiscing with the old pictures and seeing the kids soooo little and adorable 🙂 Glad I could occasionally be a part of your adventure
