Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don_t go along with that. The memories I value most, I don_t ever see them fading. (1)


I am a travel nut and dreamer who is also responsible full-time for 2 incredible spunky kids (2 and 3.5 currently)! I recently made the jump from a career in engineering to staying home and we also picked up our family and moved from NC to California at the same time. California is great because it offers such a variety of places to sample and it puts us closer to adventures in Asia or the South Pacific! We are planning to visit China in 2018 and Hawaii later this year, plus I’ve set myself the goal of visiting all 21 California Missions! We also have 3 trips planned back East in 2017 and I’m sure we’ll squeeze some more in there too!


We have been collecting magnets from every place we’ve visited over the last 6 years and I am just dying to get my hands on some more! The rules are pretty liquid but you have to actually experience the place. For instance, I haven’t brought any back from work trips where I went straight from the airport to the plant.


So the name of the blog is my goal: Get magnets from everywhere!
