It's a Lovely Life

I'm a work at home mom to three pretty awesome daughters (15, 12 and 5) and wife to a very patient guy! I started writing back in 2005 as a way to share with others all the fun things to do with kids in tow, and in the past 10+ years my site has changed names but the story has stayed the same… family is everything and life is meant for adventures! We believe in working hard and playing even harder! We are dedicated to living intentionally with goals and an action plan to accomplish our dreams.

2015 has brought even more changes to our lives as we are now traveling 8 days a month while we work to visit all of the places on our travel wish list. When we are not on a family travel adventure I'm writing about the latest tech gadgets, delicious foods, life tips, inspirational quotes, Disney and more!

Because family is the center of my life, my family is a huge part of It's a Lovely Life! My husband Pete is my second photographer, travel planning expert, tech pro and does a bunch of the behind the scenes work around here. My daughters all play a big part in IALL too. From being my inspiration to providing insight from a kids point of view, their contributions are priceless!

Temecula Old Town Walking Tour And Wine Adventure
June 12, 2015
I recently attended a day of fun in this great city! Our tour began at the Temecula Visitors Center. This visitors center is so beautiful and is a visually enhanced, interactive visitors center. The staff is amazing. They will help you book your room for the night and make sure you get reservations at the best restaurants in the area. The art work and history in and around the building was captivating. I highly recommend that you start your visit there to take advantage of their vast knowledge.
Kia Sorento Adventure in Lake Tahoe
June 8, 2015
Lake Tahoe is one of my new favorite spots in California. It is not only a great weekend getaway, but also a wonderful place for families to visit. I was invited to experience the 2016 Kia Sorento as part of an all expenses paid visit to Lake Tahoe. All opinions are my own. Special thanks to Kia for the amazing adventure.
Setting Sail On A New Adventure Aboard The Crown Princess
April 5, 2015
Sailing on a family cruise has been at the top of our travel list for years now. We were so excited to make our first cruise together as a family with Princess Cruises aboard the Crown Princess. Tons of thanks to Princess Cruises PR for hosting us on this special cruise. All opinions are mine and those of family. We hope you enjoy this insight, review and tips of the California Coastal cruise.
