This all got started when I wrote the book 50 Things to Know Before Having a Baby when I wanted to compile information quickly for others to learn from my experiences. Now after a local and national television appearance, a national radio show, and 10 authors later I have published over 300 books.
If you would like to know more about me I am a stay at home Mom, and I live with my husband, daughters, and cavalier king charles spaniel named Charlie in Lock Haven, PA.
I have been to over 35 states and over 15 countries. I have been to many states as I traveled the United States as a software trainer for over a two year period. I have also been on 14 cruises. I hope to give you some tips from my past and future trips.
Here are the places that I have been in the world:
