Welcome!  We are an Outdoors and Disney lovin’ family…


I am Tami – IT Systems Programmer by day, and Family Nurturer by night.   Outside enjoying the wilderness is pretty much my favorite place to be.

We’re raising our kids to appreciate the Great Outdoors, and love living in the Wild, Wild West.

Hiking nearby with my Little Wilderness Kids (someone’s a goofball, not unlike her mom…)

Pastimes I enjoy include travel, hiking, reading, camping, golfing, biking, baking, and spending girl time with my lovely 10 year old daughter.

And I simply try to hold on for dear life as my wild, funny, crazy 4 year old son tears through life.  His sister in no way whatsoever prepared us for him.  Fearless and tireless, he is.

We have a happy home life, for which I’m daily grateful.    If I get a moment to myself here or there?  Usually I just collapse in bed with a good book.  Or watching DVR’d episodes of Covert Affairs… fantasizing about my thrilling life as a spy, in a parallel universe.

We are a family of 6, if you count Chloe the Cat and Daisy the Dog, which we do.  Together, we love exploring nature and visiting Disney World every chance we get.

I’m a guest travel writer for Traveling Mom, and an outdoor gear writer for The Mountain Blog.  I’m currently serving as a clothing brand Ambassador for both Stonewear Designs and Aventura.
