<em>A 30-something wife and mom to one, trying to balance the joys of motherhood and family with the daily grind of life.&nbsp;</em> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.mytakeonmommyhood.com">http://www.mytakeonmommyhood.com</a> <br /> <br /> I work in the advertising industry, for a top agency in Philadelphia, PA.&nbsp; Having had my son in the last year, I am still trying to figure out the whole &quot;work / life balance&quot; thing.&nbsp; My focus has definitely shifted from the work work work mentality, to wanting to spend more time with my little guy.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> My career is in advertising, but my passion is travel.&nbsp;&nbsp;It is the fuel that keeps my engine running.&nbsp; I always joke that coming home from a trip is only made easier if the next adventure is already in the works.&nbsp; I travel for experience and discovery.&nbsp; My ideal destination is just off the beaten path enough to offer the true flavor of the place itself.&nbsp; I shy away from your typical tourist destinations.&nbsp; It is the people, food and culture of a country that shapes the experience.&nbsp; Highlights of my last few trips include a fishing village in Belize, a small beach town in southern Spain and a tour through the Guanacaste province in Costa Rica.&nbsp; <br />
