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!

This quote hit me like a ton of bricks, "Create a life that feels good on the inside. Not one that just looks good on the outside." This concept should be easy, create a life you enjoy that makes you happy and healthy but most often we are lying to ourselves.

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.

Self-reflection is a powerful tool that keeps me happy and mentally healthy. Its important for me to look within myself and to my past in order to understand my purpose, goals, and future. Here is a look into my personal resolutions for 2018.

2017 was a busy year for our family full of career changes, a move to Costa Rica and several trips all over the world. We made many memories as we were able to see some amazing places during our travels. As 2018 inches closer, I'm looking forward to a new year that...
