As a former travel and lifestyle writer, I knew my life would change a bit when I had a baby. These days, I spend far less time traveling to the farthest corners of the world chasing down a story and much more time giggling, playing, reading and exploring with my toddler son (a.k.a. Little M).
I started Crayons and Croissants in 2012 because I was doing so much research into finding the safest children’s products, most entertaining picture books (here are some of our favorites), non-toxic craft projects, interactive activities and healthy meals that I thought others might be able to benefit from my
obsessive careful and detailed findings.
Although I have cut back on my travel, Little M, the hubby and I still manage to get out and about quite a bit. I believe that it is still possible to take memorable family trips with children, it just requires more planning and a little, well a lot, more luggage. We have been lucky enough to stay at some incredible places which, despite being super luxurious, have also been incredibly kid-friendly like our stay at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
Little M and I continue to explore our world and discover new restaurants, books, hotels and travel destinations as well as find new products to help make our adventures more entertaining and interactive. I am committed to using the most eco-conscious products and to providing you with useful, accessible and stylish tips and finds!
PS: You might be wondering about the name Crayons and Croissants. As you will be able to tell pretty quickly, we love art projects in our household (Little M is seldom seen without a crayon, paintbrush or play dough in his hands) and we really love to eat as is evidenced by my many reviews of wonderful cookbooks with family-friendly recipes!
I hope this blog will help serve as your guide to the best in family-friendly travel, mom-approved finds and eco-conscious products.
