Ciao, aloha and welcome! I’m Harmony Skillman, author of Momma To Go.

I am the momma always on the go- I love to travel, plan trips, and discover awesome activities for my family. I have been all over the world, dragging my husband along with me since 2003.

I like to travel with my family. And take selfies.

In 2009 when our son was born, we did not want the adventures to stop. In fact he inspired us to be more adventurous- both in trips near and far. Now my kids have been all over the United States, to Hawaii and have one stamp in their adorable passports. As a family we have traveled by planes, trains and automobiles – road trips being my favorite. Our family loves beach destinations and warm-weather adventures. My kids love amusement parks and exploring new cities. We also like to check out everything that Long Island, where we call home, has to offer. Our travel style is a bit of whatever, we are relaxed and like to go with the flow. We are always open to new experiences. We like to save money where we can, but have been known to splurge on the moments that become life-long memories.

In addition to writing Momma To Go, I am wife to Hubby, and momma to Little Man (8) and Baby Girl (5). They are my favorite travel companions. I am a former math teacher, aspiring freelance writer, work-at-home- mommy, runner, golfer and hot sauce lover – and I like to write about all of that other stuff as well.

If you are new here, a great place to start is the Launch, which talks about my {crazy} decision to leave a 17-year teaching career to be a writer! Although I have been drawn back into to the world of math tutoring, which I love, check out my FB page HERE.
