This summer we had the most amazing trip on the Amalfi Coast and Lake Como in Italy. It was so much fun and I’m a big fan keeping up with my routines and rituals while I travel. Now that I’m a mom of 2, it’s important for me to keep the routines and rituals going for my kids too. They also travel a lot with us. Not every time, but a lot of the time, and as most of us know, kids thrive on structure and routine.

So this summer I compiled some lists that were MUSTS for Zaza, Townes and I.  They’re all on IG but wanted to share them here too. Buckle up, because today we’re going over this summer’s ride or dies for toddler, baby and me (wellness lol).
