Hi There!

I am Alana. I started this blog to share my family travel experiences and tips, inspire others to love reading with their kids, and all the organizational tips I’ve learned as a working Mom of two kids!

Eight short years ago, I quit my job, started law school, and had my first baby (Big W) all within three months. I was so lucky to go to law school at night and stay home with my son during the day. Not much studying happened, but I look back at that time as one of the best of my life! (I bet not many 1Ls can say that!)

Anyway, fast forward three years to my last year of law school. In September of that year, I had our second baby-our daughter, Little A. I took ONE WEEK off of classes when she was born and two weeks off my part time job.

All this to say, I haven’t had time for any creative outlets over the past 9 years. My kids have activities and my husband plays hockey but nothing for me. I finally decided to do something I love-write.

I created BooksKidsTravel to share the organizational tips I learned as a full time working Mom to keep everything running smoothly, tips and destinations for family travel, and to share my love of reading with you! I hope to inspire others to be adventurous, balanced, and to love reading with their kids!
