Over the past five years Stazi and I have grown practically inseparable. I’m pretty sure that I’ve learned more from her than she has from me. We both enjoy adventure and exploring the world around us. As she grows, so do I. We look forward to sharing our adventures, experiences and helpful information with those who may benefit from it. This blog serves as a way for us to capture our memories and share helpful information with others. One day I want Stazi to be able to look back and see and read things she may not remember about her childhood and learn from what I have learned in motherhood.

Stazi is a precocious five-year-old who doesn’t shy away from a challenge.  I’d like to think the fun truly started when she came into this world, in a pool in our living room. Today she loves being water, hiking, traveling and testing every boundary imaginable. Currently she is gaining interest in languages (Spanish, English and a bit of German/Arabic). Being outdoors and meeting people or visiting new places have become something she looks forward to. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a cow, goat, chipmunk or dog; she has a major interest in animals.

Mom grew up in a military family. Having parents that enjoyed traveling and having lived in homes across the US planted a desire to travel and explore. My goal is to eventually travel to every continent and every state in the US. As we work towards that goal we will hopefully adopt a more minimalistic lifestyle that affords us this opportunity.

We reside in New York City and our goal is to explore the many great spaces and places waiting to be found. As we find new activities and try our favorites we will share them here.
