Welcome!

This blog has been in the “thinking” stage for quite some time.  I have been running a creative blog for many years- at http://www.createwithtraci.com This blog is quite a bit different.  As a busy mom of 2 with a full time and 2 part time jobs- I sometimes feel like I”m failing miserably at staying on top of things.  This site is a one stop shop to find reviews that you can use- whether you’re looking for kid-friendly travel ideas, recipes, food and product reviews etc..  Please be patient as I work to build resources and the site in general.  I would love comments on how to make it more user friendly. ALSO, if you’re a busy mom and you’d like to provide a review to the site for readers to see, I’d love to have you share.  If you are a business and would like to provide a product for review- please contact me. Thanks for stopping by and seeing what this is all about! Traci
