About Me



I’m Dev, just a simple girl from Michigan who likes to travel and have fun. I have a thirst for knowledge and really enjoy learning all about the places I visit and the sites that I see.   My husband of 28 years is my main travel partner and eagerly jumps on board for whatever I have planned.

I think it all started in my high school Humanities class.  We studied, art, music, architecture and so much more.  Something just clicked with me and set my soul on fire with a desire to experience all of it.  My original plan after graduating was to teach these subjects, but life took me down another path.  Now I do my best to keep that fire burning and feed the flames with my explorations.

I have 2 grown kids who are also adventurers, finding ways to see the world whenever they can.  Plus I  hang out with a crazy bunch of girls and we are always up to something.  Last year they got me a tiara for my birthday that said “Planning B….”.  That’s me, always planning something.  Girls really do just wanna have fun!

Additionally, I have been blessed with a large group of awesome young friends who have managed to find ways to take big trips and live life to it’s fullest.  I love to pick their brains and share their tips and tricks.  They are fearless adventure warriors.

Blog Goals

Weekly Post lineup

  • Friday’s: Travel Series
  • Tuesday’s: Lifestyle/Fun/Savings

Working within a budget is important to me, so I am always looking for ways to save or make money for my Adventure fund.  This is an ongoing process since I have a long list of places yet to visit.  I am eager to pass those ideas on to you so you can fill your travel funds as well.

The plan is to write weekly about things I am passionate about.  I want to share all kinds of travel, fun and adventures with you in hopes of giving you some small take away that helps you get more out of both your travel money and your life.  We will discuss everything from Themed dinners with friends, all day wine tasting tours, 3 day weekends, vacations on the beach and travel over seas. Adventures big and small!

Since I am always in the midst of some sort of shenanigans, I will also put out some bonus posts of whatever fun things pop up along the way. I’d love to hear your ideas, so make sure to leave comments about your experiences or things you’d like to see me write about.

Most of all, lets  just have fun!

Disclosure Policy:  Occasionally I will include a link so that you can easily sign up for things I post about or find awesome items from my blog posts.  I may be compensated or earn a small referral credit when you do.  Referral links usually offer you a credit as well! 

I  pay for a WordPress Blog site plan that eliminates annoying random ads mixed through my content pages.  I am instead offering a few releveant Referral links and Amazon items that I can use to help offset those site costs.
