Hey everybody! I’m excited to announce a new social media project I’m launching— the #KidsNTrips family-focused Twitter party. I’ve partnered up with prominent family travel writers Colleen Lanin, author of The Travel Mamas Guide and and Katie Dillon, your go-to source for the luxe mom lifestyle at We’ll be tweeting away with the #KidsNTrips hashtag twice a month to bring you useful travel tips and family travel destination inspiration.

The seed got planted in my head when I was at TBEX 2013 in Toronto last year listening to the Twitter Chat presentation by Sheila Scarborough. The stars aligned, as they do, when Colleen and I were seated next to each other on the plane home from TBEX. Next thing you know Colleen, Katie and I were lunching regularly in San Diego with conversations that led to this chat. Woohoo!
