Hi, there! My name is Kristi and I’m an Arizona blogger living in Tucson. You might have observed that the name “maverick” keeps popping up on my website. That’s because when I signed up for this website, I used the name from one of my favorite movies, thinking I could later change it.
I was wrong. But can you guess the movie I’m referring to?
In a nutshell, I’m married and I have a son who is preschool aged. I work full time, but I love traveling, and I’m always thinking about (and planning) our next trip. My parents instilled in me the love for travel at a young age, when they would take me and my sister on road trips throughout the United States and Canada. While studying as an undergraduate, my sister and I backpacked our way through Italy and Spain. I would later study abroad in London, which served as a hub to experience other countries like France, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. Now that I’m a mom, my vacations have taken on a different direction – my husband and I try to seek out vacations that are family friendly, which usually involve frequent trips to Disneyland, LEGOLAND, Hawaii, and cruises.
I’m not all about travel, though – I have many other interests. I try to keep up-to-date with pop culture and the world of entertainment. I love movies, and I’m addicted to books (I have been known to check out as many as five books from the library at one time). I also love party planning, especially my son’s birthday party, and I’m trying to branch out with my cake and cupcake decorating skills.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog. I created it as a way to inspire other families to travel. You can contact me here: thecactuschroniclesATgmailDOTcom
