Welcome to my first blog post! After having the travel bug for the last few years, a degree in journalism, and turning 30 at the end of March, I decided to take the plunge and blog about my travels.

I hope, to whoever is reading this, you enjoy reading about my trips, life in New Orleans, and anything else that I may decide to blog about in the future. Experiencing different parts of the country (and soon the world) is something that I love and planning every last detail of my family’s trips is what I do.

The name of this blog started because, in September 2016, the family decided that we wanted to see America and scratch some big-ticket items off of the bucket list (it is never too early to start!). Since mid-late September is shoulder season for some of the finest National Parks in the West, the weather was something us Southern City Gals were nervous about – what do we wear for an Outdoorsy vacation where the temperature can fall into the 40s!

Well, the travel uniform was decided – Plaid Shirts and Yoga Pants!

Don’t get me wrong, I love wearing dresses, heels, sandals and what not; but taking a road trip across four states, visiting four national parks, and endless sightseeing opportunities – we needed something comfortable!

Since shoulder season is ending and summer right around the corner, I wanted to take some time to talk about my family’s Epic 9 day National Parks trip. As you will learn, many trips I plan are planned to the max.

Stay tuned to learn about what we did to visit:
