What Will You Find on Tori Leigh?

Family Travel

Do you find yourself daydreaming about mountain views or giggling at the thought of watching your little ones splash in the ocean waves?

Ever think of road tripping with the kids around the US? Or taking them on a cruise to the Mediterranean or the Caribbean Islands?

As an avid traveler and blogger, one of my main goals is to motivate you see more or the world and take more family adventures.

I’ve been traveling since I was a kid. When I was 11, my mom took me to London and Paris and I was hooked. The travel bug never left.

More importantly, I realized the world is vast and exciting at a young age.

As a mom of two, I want my kids to grow up with the same sense of wanderlust. I want them to know about and see the world that exists beyond their city.

I want to make travel happen for you and your family, too!

We’re always sharing our family adventures and what motivates us to hit the road (or the sky). If you’re looking for some family travel inspiration, start with our favorite benefits of taking family vacations.

Our destinations page and US travel page feature itineraries from cities and countries around the US and the world, along with our family favorites in each.

We don’t just want your next family trip to be fun for the kids, though – moms and dads deserve to feel the vacay vibes, too! For that reason, we enjoy highlighting cultural and historic sites, museums, and outdoor activities. You may even find the occasional kid friendly winery!

Tori-Leigh loves sharing itineraries that are fun for kids and parents!

To help make the planning process seamless, our family travel tips page offers everything from travel car seats, to road trip tips, to travel related gifts for kids.

But Living The Mom Live Can Be Just as Exciting at Home

One of my goals with Tori-Leigh is to cultivate a place on the internet that offers support and encouragement for moms.

We want to help you streamline life at home so there’s more time for fun and adventure. As much as we want to inspire you to get out and see the world, we want you to enjoy home life, too. The two should be seamless.

Our mom life page features everything from, minimalism to self-help books for moms, designed to help you make time for more than dishes and snacks. I want to help give you the confidence to enjoy mom life and find your own incredible adventure.

It’s a wild ride raising kids.

So, Who is Tori of Tori-Leigh?


First things first, I’m a wife to a USMC veteran / internet security engineer and a boy mom to two (Caelan age 3, and Rory age 1).

I like to think I’m the queen of the castle.

In addition to collecting passport stamps, I hold degrees in English Literature and Library & Information Science. I worked as a public librarian for eight years before our family moved from New York to Texas.

Currently, I’m a stay at home mom. It’s the single best – and hardest – job I have ever held.

Additionally, I’m a certified yoga teacher with experience teaching vinyasa, yin, restorative, and children’s yoga.

I’m terrible at math, except for travel budgeting. It’s a good thing I’m more of a book person. My obsessions include historical fiction, anything French, indoor plants, ice cold white Bordeaux, and obsessively redecorating my minimalist apartment. And my kids!

I hope you join us on our crazy adventures!

      Yesss!! I did YTT in 2014 and taught like 5 classes a week on top of working FT and burned out so fast – when I got pregnant with my son I quit all my classes and now I just sub and teach kids. BUT, I’m so glad I did it bc it definitely keeps me a more sane person…that and all the wine I drink!
