Welcome to our blog!

As work-at-home-moms, we wanted to create a blog that would combine our our online travel and bridal honeymoon registry business with resources to help women business owners and wedding vendors.

We have recently started new business ventures that we are very excited about and will be sharing with you. We will also be featuring work at home businesses and the moms and dads behind these businesses in our WAHM Corner. If you want to be featured sign our guestbook or leave us a comment. We would love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to sign our guestbook and leave a comment for us. If you want us to write on a particular travel destination, or need a specific travel tip, let us know. Enjoy the ride!

The Smart Woman Manifesto - What is a Smart Woman?

The Smart Woman Manifesto - What is a Smart Woman? By Vicki Flaugher

A Smart Woman uses her entire toolbox of experiences, talents, feelings, logic, intuition, education, and yes, even her mistakes, to live her life authentically engaged. She takes the time to care for herself, evaluate what she really thinks and feels, and acts and reacts from a place of patient love, energized compassion, and balanced accountability. Choices are opportunities and she welcomes them. Opportunity leads to her future and she faces that future with a ready and willing heart and a nimble and open mind.

A Smart Woman respects others' points of view while still making her own choices. She gives generously to others while nurturing herself. She knows the value of boundaries and is skillful in using them to build stronger relationships. She speaks up when she needs to and she knows how and when to supportively listen as she keeps her vision of peace and tolerance in sight. She knows when to walk away, wishing luck and best wishes to those who are on another path. She knows and values her true worth.

Adaptable, caring, capable, and clever, a Smart Woman embraces life and triumphantly whoops and hollers her way to joy. She claims her power and her divine birthright, as each of us do, in a myriad of infinitely beautiful and unique ways, creating a fulfilling life as a Smart Woman. She's not out to prove anything to anybody. She is here to learn, live, love, laugh, and contribute.

I believe we all have a lot to share, to communicate, to witness, and to celebrate. I would feel honored and thrilled to know you are by my side. So, what do you think? Are you ready to explore? I hope so, because today, I am making firm plans and those plans include you. I am a Smart Woman with firm plans. Are you?
