First time for everything

I have been thinking about starting a blog for about 9 months. But I'm a procrastinator. So here it is...finally.

A little background on me: I have been married for almost 2 years to a wonderful man. In January, our little girl was born and my life has taken a whole new turn. I was on maternity leave for 11 weeks and I have been back to work for 2 weeks now. It sucks. No nice way to put it. It's one of the hardest things I have ever done. But hopefully things will get better soon.

What's with the title? Growing up my family went on road trips - they usually lasted around two and a half weeks. Mom had a conference every summer and Dad and I would start the road trip immediately after dropping mom off at the airport. We would drive to wherever the conference was and then spend a few days there before taking a few days to drive home exploring the country on the way. They were some of my favorite vacations. Now that we are a family of three, I have found myself already longing for those vacations. Having no set time to arrive our destination, we had the freedom to take the scenic route and see all parts of the country. I can't wait to share these moments with my family.

I would love to say that this blog will be all about the scenic moments in my life, but we all know that not everything goes as planned and you never know where the road may take you.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!! Just swung by to say Hi! via Manic. She got me stated on the whole blog thing too - she has a lot to answer for!

    Just realised I have the honour of being your first comment!

  2. Congrats on the new beginning. Can't wait to see where this road take you (us). :)

  3. Going back to work wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the tears blocking your vision! It gets easier, eventually.

  4. Amanda - Thanks for stopping by and being my first commenter!

    Celing - Love you.

    Drama Queen - Thanks for the encouraging words. I really appreciate them!

  5. I have a lot of great memories of road tripping with my family. There were even times my dad took me out of school to go on short business trips with him and they're times I won't forget. I fully believe travel with kids creates much more lasting memeories than what they get for Christmas or any of the other things we tend to put some effort into. Good luck with your young famil.


Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
