Welcome to 

A House of Sparrows

a travel + lifestyle blog

Welcome to A House of Sparrows, a travel + lifestyle blog that shares my family's journey to experience the world through travel, food and friendship. In 2017, we sold nearly everything we own and moved from Dallas, TX to Costa Rica to pursue a life fueled by our passion, travel! 


As a travel enthusiast, I believe travel doesn't have to stop after kids and that there is nothing more special than seeing the world through your child's eyes. Living a life of adventure is possible whether you are backpacking across Asia or planning weekend getaways.


Our family's daily goal is to live a fulfilled and happy life and we are excited for you to join us on this journey!

As I look back on these past few months, I can't believe that our family has moved to Costa Rica only 90 days ago. That's it?! It seems like months of memories and life lessons have been crammed into only three months.

Cartagena de Indias, a city full of color, romance and a vibrant culture all nestled behind its historic walls. Its a city that pleasantly surprised me and left me head over heels for the Colombian culture.

Some cities surprisingly grow on me when I least expect it, and Cartagena was one of them. Cartagena was bursting with color, charm and it had a spirited vibe that was felt as soon as you entered the historic walls.

Waterfalls are hiding behind every corner in Costa Rica and during our trip to Arenal we visited the beautiful La Fortuna Waterfall. Its an impressive display of nature's sheer power and Costa Rica's beautiful landscapes.

Last week, Ryan and I celebrated our five year wedding anniversary so we decided to travel to Arenal Volcano to celebrate! It is one of the most iconic sights of the country and we were excited to explore a new part of Costa Rica.
