Fall in Love with Travel Again

This morning I woke up to a bit of cool weather here in Louisiana. I sat on my back porch wrapped in a blanket, sipping Louisiana’s Community Coffee, watchng the sun rise. I chatted with my husband about the change in weather and we discussed a few of the travel destinations we’d like to visit over the next few months. We’ve also started to plan a spring trip with the kids. As a family on a budget, we like to plan ahead for bigger trips so that the cost isn’t a burden to our every day budget. A new aspect we’ve added to is our Daily Travel Deals. ThemeParkMom rounds up the best deals found on the web and posts them on most weekdays. I put emphasis on the word most, because as moms with full time jobs, sometimes the unplanned happens. We’ve also been checking out events in our own areas.
