Quick-Fold Car Seat and Stroller Combo with KeyFit 30
This stroller and carseat combo served us well, traveling across the United States and South America. It is quick and easy to fold up (one handed, even!), not too heavy given its size and durability, and truly grows with your child. Absolutely worth the money.
Zipped Backpack-Wearable, Lightweight, Compact
The RideSafer Vest is a crash-tested, safety certified, foldable and portable car seat for those who travel. WE LOVE THIS THING! It goes with us everywhere and gives us peace of mind when using Ubers, taxis, or rental cars.
Jool Baby
We literally never leave home without this bad boy. Tucked neatly into its travel bag, we toss it t in my purse or Skyler's bag. It goes with us out to eat, on airplanes, or when visiting friends who dont have small kids. Because ya never know when the urge will strike!
After trying several bento box style lunch containers, we settled on this brand as our favorite. Affordable and long-lasting, we've been using these since we had to start sending actual food with him to daycare. Now that he's at a school that provides food, we use these for snacking around the house, on road trips, at the vineyard, etc.

About Me

👋 Hi, I'm Ashley!

I'm a mom to one human child and three cats, a home exchange advocate, a lover of yoga and Broadway musicals, a remote employee, and a longterm resident of Music City.

I write about my family's adventures while working remotelyparenting a small child, and traveling with anxiety. I focus on affordable travel, work-life balance and mental wellness, and bringing the world to you when you're not able to go anywhere. I also write a lot about Nashville and how to be a tourist in your own town.
