Welcome Adventurer





Welcome To Shining Thoughts Blog!

Do you ever wake up and think “I want to go on an adventure!” Then you realize that you have no idea what direction to head. Two minutes later your kids are screaming for breakfast and your husband is taking an hour-long epic poop and you realize that your adventure has already begun.

Our family is no different.

Through all of these adventures, whether it’s home based or out on the open road, we have discovered that there is always a reason to shine and enjoy life. Our map is of Southern California and we plan to find every hidden gem as well as the more frequented. It’s not going to go as planned but we’re going to take you along for those rides as well.

Look our for our huge 2017 road trip posts, with tips for traveling with kids, ways to save money when planning a vacation and  activity ideas for keeping the entire family happy!
