1.What is the best memory you have experienced while traveling?

I took a European birthday trip in 2010 and it has been my favorite vacation ever.  I saw the German Alps and literally cried as I was overwhelmed with nature’s amazing beauty.  I also visited Russia, never in a million years would I have thought I would go there.  I celebrated my 35th birthday in Finland, how many people can say something like that?  I could keep going and going talking about my European tour.  I have so many good memories that a blog post about this trip is in my To Do List. 

2. What is the most exciting thing that has happened to your blog since starting it?

Besides being shared by businesses in their social media, being nominated to this award.


3. What was the inspiration for the name of your blog?

I love the dual meaning of This Mom Is Going Places.  This mom will be successful in this and every other project she undertakes and she will literally travel and go to places that are new to her and her girls.  I honestly think the name is a perfect fit for me and my blog.

4. What is one of your favorite parts about being a mom?

My girls are my inspiration, my strength, what keeps me going, the light in my darkest days.  They bring the best out of me.  They make my heart happy just by existing!

The ability to make my mother, my sisters, my brother, my girls and myself eternal, and bring my dad back from heaven.


6. What is that one post made by you that you like the most and why?

My favorite post is Disneyland – Ultimate Toddler Friendly Picks! This trip was so much fun! I had a good time reviewing the pictures and enjoyed all the memories. It’s also a post that has been shared a lot in social media.

7. What inspired you to start your blog?

My girls.  I use my blog as a motivation to go places and do fun things with them. My blog is also my journal. I want my daughters to be able to read it and see the pictures in the future, hopefully it will bring happy memories! 

8. Summer or Winter?

Summer in Puerto Rico, Winter in California. 

9. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?

My family.  My mom and my dad provided me a beautiful childhood. My sisters and brother are the best friends and sidekicks I could ever have.  My daughters are my dream come true.
