It’s an Adventure!


The Pursuit of Play was launched in 2017 as a community for families looking to enrich their lives with adventure, play and exploration in the monotony of the every day.  If you love having fun with your kids, finding adventure and discovering new things to do, you’ll feel right at home here!

Growing up, I had a very special Aunt in my life who always encouraged and embraced adventure.  When things went awry (i.e., getting stuck on a snowmobile in the middle of the Mississippi or sitting on the porch while a violent tornado touched down across the street), she would get a smirk on her face and say “It’s an adventure!”.  I try to make this my motto and work hard to find adventure in our every day life and discover the fun in every almost every situation.  We can plan and plan but we never know what the outcome will be.  Sometimes, the most fun is discovered when you least expect it.

After much encouragement, I have decided to share the love with all of you! I am a former teacher turned stay at home mom. I have been working with children for over 18 years. Between being a live-in nanny to running an in-home daycare and teaching elementary school, I’ve done it all and yet nothing has proven as challenging as having my own children.  That’s when I put on my teacher hat and began to enrich my own children’s lives through intentional play and exploring the world around us.   We are having so much fun finding adventure in our ordinary and extraordinary days!

I’d love if you’d join me on our journey to find adventure, whether it be in your backyard or across the country!
