About Me

Mom, Writer, Photographer

Hi! I’m Addie and I love to have fun! I have written for local websites for the past 6 years and decided to start my own thing, so here I am. Welcome! I’m always out and about with my family, finding cool stuff to do, and then sharing it here with you.

I’m so grateful to be able to share my experiences with you, and love to play even a small part in helping you find fun things to do with your family.

Hope to see you out there having fun!

๐Ÿ˜Ž Teens in Austin: Rage Room We went to @thebreakingpoint_atx yesterday to check out their rage room. Anyone 13 and up can go smash things for 30 minutes ($40).
