Welcome to my blog!

I am really happy you are here, because the people who read my blog are the reason I write and the motivation to keep doing this every day. Thank you for being here and for wanting to find out more about me and my blog.
I am Raluca and I started this blog after moving from Europe to California. I am 29 years old and I am married to a wonderful man named Adrian, who is the love of my life. 🙂about-me-1

We have a little boy named Bogdan, who is now 3 years old and who totally changed our life ever since I got pregnant. He is the center of my universe and the inspiration I get every day to be a better me, to truly enjoy life and to find joy in all the little things around us. I have always been a happy and optimistic person, but now I feel like he has brought to my life a kind of happiness I didn’t even know existed.

about-me-2I am now a stay-at-home mom, but previously I have worked for several years in the financial industry. I was born in Bucharest, Romania and my greatest passion has always been traveling. I discovered a lot of Europe, a little bit of Asia and now I am planning to travel all around the U.S. and to discover all the amazing places here.
My boy was always part of my journeys, ever since he was a little baby, so each of my trips is a new adventure for him. 🙂

about-me-3This blog is meant to be our “online home”, where I will write about our life, the challenges I face as a mother and the wonderful destinations we discover in our trips. It’s about happy moments, parenting and travel, because all these are part of me and I am glad to share my stories with you. I hope they will bring you joy, inspiration, courage or sometimes just a virtual hug when you face a difficult time.

about-me-4I am passionate about positive parenting, blogging, traveling, social media, dancing and some guilty pleasures – chocolate, good wines and tasty coffee. You will get to know me better with every post on this blog and if you ever want to share your opinion with me please feel free to comment or to write me a private message (here). I would be glad to hear from you! 🙂
I am grateful that you took some time to find out more about me and the blog and I hope you enjoy following along!
