Books are a huge building block to a child’s development, but as moms, it can be hard to always stay on top of purchasing new and interesting books for our kids. This rings especially true with new mothers who can find it hard to have time for the most basic of activities and book shopping is definitely not on the top of your list. The internet makes it possible to not have to leave your home, but there is a new service that makes it even easier to bring the joy of books and reading effortlessly into your home.

Breathtaking… there are many beautiful places and destinations in this world, but few literally take your breath away like Meteora. When speaking to others about taking our family to Greece, most raved about the obvious places like the islands of Santorini and Mykonos. However, Greece holds a hidden gem even more beautiful than what can be found on those islands, and to plan a trip to Greece without including Meteora would be a definite loss.

As the holidays approach it becomes more apparent how precious family is, and how much time can change a family. I sit at a family dinner looking at my grandparents missing the years I had as a child with them. Hanging out at grandma’s house was one of my favorite activities as a child. I couldn’t wait to see her after school and hang out together eating cookies and milk while watching our favorite shows. She made me feel special and I am so grateful for those years we spent together. Now that I am an adult with my own children, life gets away from me and I don’t spend as much time as I would like at “grandma’s house” anymore.

Travel day, the very words that give me anxiety and butterflies in my stomach. Getting four people from point A to point B isn’t as easy as one might think. So many little details go into our whole family traveling, and the one detail that stresses me out before we even leave for the airport is how we are going to haul our luggage around. This one task can make our family go from a cute family getting ready for a fun trip to two stressed out parents frantically running through the airport with two uncooperative kids asking “when can we stop pulling our luggage?”

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food and ways of life.

We love watching them learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world for the first time and made memories that will last a lifetime.
