Top Mom blog featuring events and family travel in Los Angeles.

convertible car parked near palm trees on Rodeo Drive on a sunny dayWelcome to Biz Mommy! This is our family’s online home-base where we share what we’ve been up to with family travel in Los Angeles as well as on our travels around the country and the world. We love visiting new places, eating out together as a family and are always game to try activities and events that may be a little bit off the beaten path. Feel free to look around for suggestions on things to do, places to go and deals to seek out. We’d love to hear about your adventures too, so please do share in the comments if you have any good tips! Thanks for stopping by and maybe one of these days, our paths will cross out there on the road. :)

As a blogger and web copywriter who works from home, it’s always been important to me to have a flexible work schedule so I can be available for my kids whenever they need me. Although I’ve written on hundreds of different topics over the years across a wide range of industries, the two subjects about which I have been most passionate are family travel in Los Angeles and beyond and volunteerism. Since my kids were very little, my husband and I have tried hard to expose our girls to charity events and having them participate in volunteer activities in our community. In addition, traveling together with our kids has also been important to us because we believe that seeing different cities and learning about other cultures is one of the best ways to teach them about the world and to help them eventually grow into compassionate, curious, knowledgeable and well-rounded adults. This blogging journey I’ve been on has been interesting, varied and lots of fun, but never more so than the adventures I’ve been able to experience together with my husband and kids. These days, our family motto has become, “no matter what else is going on in work and life, it’s all about family first!”

And we’re enjoying every single moment.
