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!
