WelcomeKristie Rodriguez Ico

I'm so happy that you are here. I birthed the idea of this blog almost 2 years ago. I am psyched to finally share some of my thoughts and experiences on motherhood, education, and travel.

I hope you find that this is a safe space for us to learn, grow, and dream together. Thanks for stopping by!
