I love to travel and write about food along the way, and my blog, Girl Gone Travel, is where I share all my adventures. But my other great love is my family: my best friend and husband Travis – a gorgeous Irish/Scot by way of Wisconsin - and our wonderful boys complete my perfect, colorful package and make it easy to say I am one of the happiest people I know. Four years ago I left a busy world of public relations behind to be with my family more and I haven’t looked back.
