What’s in My Newborn Diaper Bag?

What’s in a diaper bag? Never once, before having Andrew, did I think about this. Even when I was a nanny, I just kind of threw things into a bag, or it was already packed for me, and we were ready to go. This time I found myself researching Google and Pinterest trying to find out EXACTLY what I needed to put in my diaper bag.

The Importance of Self-Care for Moms and Travelers

I’m a big advocate for self care. I think it’s essential for being your best self and staying physically and mentally healthy. In case you don’t know what self- care is, PsychCentral says it’s “any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health.” They go on to say “Good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It’s also key to a good relationship with oneself and others.” Self care is something that refuels us. It should be something we enjoy doing and get pleasure from.

Summer Reading List 2017

I wanted to take this summer to really make reading a priority. I looked over Amazon, Good Reads and other boards to see what everyone was reading this summer and came up with my own list. Some are completely new to me and others I’ve read before but need to get back into. Here is my summer reading list for 2017.

35 Summer Date Night Ideas with An Infant

During Summer when the days are so long and the weather so nice (or extremely hot if you’re in Texas) I think it’s a great time to plan date nights for you and your partner. If you’re like me you have a little one that is pretty attached to you at all times. Not only is Andrew attached to me, we also don’t have any family around to watch him for an hour or two (and I’m not quite ready to leave him with anyone else). So if you can’t have a getaway with just you and your partner, here are some summer date night ideas that an infant can either participate or conveniently be napping in a close by place.

New Addition to the AWS Team

If you follow me on social media (and you definitely should), or you’ve just noticed a change in the website content, then you know that I have added a new travel companion to the A Wandering Scribbler team. This companion isn’t going to be doing too much work around here, but he sure will be a cute addition to my photos and will inspire much of what I write about.

Photo Essay- Wichita Falls, TX

By now, you know that Wichita Falls, TX is my new hometown.  Because we'll be here for a few years, because our child will be born here, and because I just want to start "traveling locally" more, I've been spending a lot of time wandering around our town. I've been practicing my photography and because [...]

Texas Bucket List

It would seem that we’re Texas residents now. I can’t believe we’ve been here almost a year already. While we’ve managed to do a good amount of things in our new state, we have so many left. We have crossed off a few major list items while living in Texas: buying our first home, and [...]

Military Nationals- Our Weekend Away

Before Steve and I were serious, I never even knew what powerlifting was. My gym-going and exercising were mostly jogging and some light weights, or just body weight to stay in shape for soccer. After soccer, I just continued jogging to keep from being completely out of shape. When I got to know more about [...]
