How I Survived (and even DELIGHTED in) a Road Trip with Both my Littles…

This article was originally published on Perfection Pending, you can find it HERE. Perfection Pending is a fun parenting blog and I was delighted to contribute. They are actually sharing a syndicated post of mine next week, which I’ll be sure to share on my social media channels. While I wrote this post just after our summer trip to California, I figured now was a good time to repost in case any parents are planning to travel by car during the upcoming holidays!

Blast from the Past

This is a post I started drafting just after our big trip last month. Since then it has been quite delayed due to mourning my grandma and then having our whole family get sick with the cold/sinus infection that just won’t quit!

But in the days that followed I started missing London and more traditional scones. I went to London as a summer study abroad program when I was studying at Pepperdine and while there I got to go to high tea with one of my best friends. Hands down one of my top 10 favorite travel memories. Continue reading
