After traveling around the country and camping for 7 weeks about 4 years ago, Kelly and I said that one of our goals one day would be to get a camper. At the beginning of this year I began to write down my goal of owning a camper for the family travels. It's said that you are 42% morel likely to achieve your goal if you write it down and even more likely if you write it down every day. After consistently doing so, we were able to make one of our dreams come true and we are so grateful that we made this decision. Now we have a life time of outdoor adventures ahead of us and we will be traveling all across North America.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in you sail. Explore. Dream. Discover. #MarkTwain

Dear Costa Rica,
You caught us by surprise. Your endless beauty, biodiversity, beautiful people, and micro climates consisting of cloud forests, exotic volcanoes, mountains beyond mountains, beaches with the most gorgeous sunsets, and rainforests always left us in awe. We were reminded of how magnificent nature is, how tiny we are, and how amazing life is on a daily basis. You are truly a tropical paradise.
Costa Rica, you made us wiser, kinder, and stronger. You also made our love deeper. We feel so lucky that not only we got to experience your natural wonders, but also got to welcome our daughter in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
We miss you tremendously but know that we will reunite again. Hopefully for much longer. We love and appreciate you and the village we built while there, Costa Rica! Stay beautiful.
Sam, Nafisa, Abey, & Soraya aka our little Tica. •

Not named but so obsessed with walking the streets near our Airbnb. How dreamy is St Kilda in winter. All the Art Deco buildings with streets filled with fallen leaves 🍁 “Please don’t go. We’ll eat you all up we love you so!” - Where the wild things are. Maurice Sendak
This past weekend our family went hiking in the Poconos. There something amazing about exploring the outdoors with the girls, they are so fascinated by everything. The rocks along the way, leaves, bugs, plants, and Annabelle’s favorite—picking out her hiking stick! So grateful for our summer travels!

“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

This girl LOVED everything about the water! The best part of this trip, hands down, was watching Cora explore so much “newness” - new environment, new activities, and new people. I was nervous about taking her on such a big trip, but she did amazing.

I’ve received a lot of questions about the stroller I use, so here it goes: I’m always looking for brands that give back to the environment, and aside from being super lightweight + easy to maneuver, @myjoolz
plants a tree for each stroller that is sold!
and for my fellow moms on to go - it’s quick to fold up to store in cars + check onto airplanes ✈️ fashionable, functional and philanthropic? what’s not to love ❤️ #jointheurbanbeauty #joolzhub #myjoolz
