Our Family Faves

We’ve been sharing our adventures with you for a few years now, but we haven’t shared much about ourselves. Let’s change that. Here’s a little bit deeper look into who we are and what we have loved most about sharing our adventures with you.

We are College Sweethearts

We met in 2001 at Texas A&M-Commerce and have been together ever since. He’s the country to my rock n roll. We celebrated 16 years of marriage last April.

What started as a necessity quickly turned into a passion

When our girls were younger we desperately wanted to travel with them but our budget was tight. I planned an epic road trip on a budget for us in 2016 and the rest is history.

Here’s a look at what each of us consider our favorite Texas town, what we have loved most about our travels, and what we love to do most when we’re not traveling.
